I am looking for confirmation of the following information and I'd like some information about the Irish forebears ... if it's out there.

My g'gfather was Thomas Mochler b. ABT 1862 in Ireland d Dec 31 1904. He was married to Bridgit A. Connell born in Ireland. They were married 17 Nov 1885 and she died July 30 1922 in Sandwich MA.

It's not clear when they changed their names to Moakley but by the time my grandmother was born in 1902, they were Moakleys in Boston.

I've been told there were twelve children but can only account for the following:

Thomas Moakley ne Mochler born June 30 1887 died 1931
married Mary Kelly
Three children: Thomas Moakley who died 2002, Kathleen Moakley, Rita Moakley

Mary (Mamie) Moakley born 1891 married George Eddy
Four children: George Eddy, Jr., Mary Eddy, Virginia Eddy and Clare Eddy

Rosetta (Rose) Moakley born Oct 13, 1893 died 1941 married Joseph Vallely
Five children: Joseph Vallely, Jr., Mary (Sis) Vallely, Rose (Pidgie) Vallely, Theresa Vallely, John Vallely who died 1940

Peter J. Moakley born Sept 23, 1895, died 1968
unknown first wife with two children - Frances X Moakley, Mary Moakley
married Anna Cronin who died 1922
children: Helena Moakley, Anna Moakley m Rudolph Zygadlo

John Moakley born Aug 31 1897 died Feb 1972
no known marriages or children

James Moakley born Feb 1900 died Feb 1901

Agnes Rita Moakley born Feb 14 1902, died July 22 1982
married August 23 1920 to Murray Michael Norris who was born April 15 1893 died August 15 1957
Two children: William Gerard Norris (my father), Theresa Marie Norris

Joseph Moakley born July 27 1904, died Nov 16 1967 married Mary Scabini
Three children John Joseph Moakley (US congressman), Thomas Moakley, Robert Moakley

I have a little more information about later generations to share with family members but if you have additional information or clarification of what's listed here, I would love to connect with you.
