Researching Catherine Ward born in Leitrim Ireland 10 March 1870 - parents John Ward & Bridget Mahon. Emigrated to USA between 1890 & 1910. I have been researching her for quite a long time now without any success. I found her twin sister Mrs Mary Tighe, also her sisters Bridget Ward and Margaret McCarthy and many 1st cousins all living and marrying in Worcester Massachusetts so I assumed that she would be there as well. However having searched everything possible on line - I've drawn a blank again. I think her married name was Leach or Leech. Her twin sister emigrated in 1896. I would be most grateful for any help or suggestions with this. Thank you. LB

The best match I can find for Catherine's entry into the U.S. was in 1891:

September 1891, ship Catalonia, from Liverpool to Boston, Massachusetts.

Catherine WARD, age 20, female, spinster, born Ireland, traveling to Massachusetts.

The entry below hers is for an Annie WARD, age 16, female, spinster, born Ireland, also traveling to Massachusetts.

Could you add more information for her sisters Bridget and Margaret? Birth dates and when they emigrated?

Thank you bethrau1. Catherine Wards sisters Margaret M born 1883 Ireland,she emigrated 1904 via her brother Patrick J Fishkill New York. She married Domnic (Daniel) McCarthy. Lived in Worcester Ma. Children Charles J. Kathleen,and I think two more.
Bridget emigrated in 1926 (she was 53) to Boston Ma going to live with the McCarthys in Worcester.
Margaret, Bridget, and Mary, were sisters and all lived in Worcester as well as a dozen or so cousins and a lot of them had the first name catherine. I also did some searches in NY - thought she might be there because of her brothers Patrick and Hugh but didn't find anything there either.
Thanks again for replying.LB
