Hi, my name is Kevin and I love researching my family tree!!

I am specifically interested in the Gilhooleys from Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Westchester Counties, N.Y. In addition, I'm researching the Dunckleys, Morans, and Swifts also in Brooklyn, NY. One of my Gilhooleys married an Adams, which brings my search to Orange County, Vermont.

My biggest find has been my great-great-great grandfather, Cornelius Adams, at White Plains Rural Cemetery in Westchester Co!

My biggest challenge is James Gilhooley/Gilhuly/Gillooly who lived in Scarsdale, Westchester County, NY from 1869 - 1886. James was born in Ireland ~1843, emigrated, married an American girl, and had several children. His last child was born 1884 and an 1886 "Letter of Administration" from a NY State judge distributes his estate to his wife, Fidelia.

I could use help identifying cemeteries in Westchester County where he could be buried. He is not at Gate of Heaven, White Plains Rural, Mount Calvary, or Kensico. :-(

I live in Orange County, California, and often snap headstones nearby my relatives. If I have a duplicate, or you request a transfer, please notify me through the F-A-G "edit" process.

Thank you to all of the members of this community who contribute so much!
