Parents of John Joseph Caffrey

Postby rp76226 » 03 Jun 2014, 02:02

John Joseph Caffrey was born January 7, 1867 in Archibald, Pennsylvania. He married Ruth Hover on April 28, 1909 (License # 683, year 1909, Volume 90, Page 109). They had 15 children. He died on June 15, 1935. I've found several census records that could be him as a child, but there's no way to verify. An actual image of a marriage or death record may give his parents' names while at the same time verifying his spouse who is known, but I cannot seem to find them.

The 1910 US Census indicates that John Caffrey's parents were born in Ireland.
There is an 1870 US Census in Archibald, PA, with John Caffrey, age 3, and parents Richard and Winifred, both born in Ireland. I would think that is a strong possibility.

Here is the link on Ancestry.com

Also... since you know the marriage license number, why not write to the county/state and request a copy?

I am aware of the 1870 census and agree that it is a strong possibility, but Caffrey is an extremely popular name. I have too many people on my tree to pay the exorbitant fees governments want for records for each end of the line family branch.
