Bridget Terresa Collins Kelly
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Aug., 1840
County Roscommon, Ireland
Death: 1930
Cortland County
New York, USA

Wife of Charles J. Kelly Sr. b.<1835> d. 9 Dec 1885 in Cloonif, Roscommon County, Ireland.

One child not yet linked:
Margaret (John) Clancy
Buried in Staten Island, NY

Bridget came to the USA in 1897. Several of her children arrived earlier.

The date of birth on her gravestone may be wrong? It stated in her obit, located at the Cortland County Historical Society Research Library, that she was 90 years old. If she was born in 1835, she would have been 95 years old in 1930. The 1900 Federal Census records her birth date as Aug 1844, which still does not match her obit information? I am using 1840 as her birth year until I can check more records to verify her birth date.

Her name is spelled "Briget" on her gravestone. Her obit spelled it Bridget.

Her obit states she was the wife of Charles J. Kelly who died in County Rosscommon, Ireland on 9 Dec 1885 and that is correct.
