Query: KINGSLEY/MCMAHAN of Union city and Indianapolis

I'm looking for an obituary for the following relatives.

JAMES KINGSLEY (1839 - 1917)
b. 1839 Republic of Ireland (county unknown)Immigrated either 1847 or 1856 per census records.
m. abt. 1866, place unknown. Wife BRIDGET MCMAHAN, b. Vermont Nov. 1, 1849
Placed in Union City (1880 Census) and in Indianapolis in the 1900 and 1910 Census. Seven kids, all born in Marion Co. from 1867 to 1891.
Died: Jan. 23, 1917 in Indianapolis. James, Bridget and
two (adult) kids are burried at Holy Cross Cem., Indianapolis.

I am hopeful that an obit. for James will give a clue as to the county in the Republic of Ireland, in which James was born.

I cannot come to Indianapolis from California.

Thank you for any help you can give.

  1. Jack,
    I checked James' obit in the Indpls News but no birth info was included. I suggest you contact the Catholic Cemetery Assoc and see what they have. [Use Google]
