My grandmother, Gertrude Frances MOAKLEY b. 15 Nov. 1901, Boston MA, her brother, John F. MOAKLEY, b. 23 Feb 1909, Boston MA. Their parents were Cornelius Patrick MOAKLEY and Alice Jane COSGRIFF. Cornelius b. 1 Mar 1873, Boston MA, d. 7 Jun 1942, Boston MA, m. Alice Jane COSGRIFF 27 Sep 1900.
Cornelius was s/o William MOAKLEY b. abt 1816 Ireland, and Ellen O'BRIEN b. abt 1836, Ireland; they m. 3 Feb 1863 in Boston MA. This couple should not be confused with another William & Ellen MOAKLEY living in Boston at the same time; I'm told the other is the Congressman's line...Theirs, wife was born in New York City, ours, wife was born in Ireland, and this is the only way to distinguish them in the records.Our William was s/o Patrick MOAKLEY and Julia ---
