Just found the correct spelling for family name: Quealy

The only information passed down to me is that Mike Quealy was born in County Clare. After immigrating to the US, at some point he became the Chief of Police in Casper, Wyoming

Have you thought of calling the Casper City Police to see what info they can give you? Their ph # is (307) 235-8278. There is a Michael Roache Quealy aged 79 and died 2 Dec 1970 who is buried in the Highland cemetery. I can look up the obituary for you if you would like. I can also take a picture of the headstone.

A former Casper police chief, Michael R. Quealy, 79, of 1427 Sheridan Dr., died Wednesday morning in Natrona County Memorial Hospital after a sudden illness.

Quealy served as police chief from 1931 to 1933. He then went to work as a boiler operator for the Texaco Refinery from which he retired in Sept. 1956.

Quealy was a member of Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus, the American Legion and was elected commander of the Wyoming Disabled Veterans in 1936.

I can take a picture of the headstone as well for you. There are still some Quealys that live in Casper. E-mail me at cemeterywalker@hotmail.com if you want me to contact them for you.

Your grandfather had a brother Patrick. Patrick was my paternal grandfather. I have extensive family tree information if you are interested. I am in Illinois. Patrick settled in Chicago. One of Michael's children (John I think) kept in touch with my father (James) until 2012 when my father passed away. Feel free to email me at ; mikequealy(at)sbcglobal.net

Best regards, Michael Patrick Quealy
