General Notes: Husband - James FORREY
==========================================================================================

I have quite a lot of information on the James Forrey family. James Forrey was my great
grandmother's (Mary Grace) first husband. Try a search of the New Orleans, Louisiana 1880
census under the name Forey. It will list James, Mary Grace, Annie, Rose and Mary. After
much research, I obtained baptismal certificates from St. Michael's Church in New Orleans
for all three of the girls which gives their birth dates and their baptismal dates, along
with the names of their sponsors. How do you know that James Forrey was born in County
Mayo, Ireland and died in 1883? I have been searching the New Orleans Death Index, but
have been unable to locate James Forrey. I know that Mary Grace married a William Murray
(my great grandfather) around 1884-1885 in New Orleans and they moved to Galveston,
Texas. You can locate them in the 1900 Galveston Texas Census under William Murray. That
is how they ended up in Galveston. I hope someone reads this because I have been doing
research for about the last year and this if the first time I have come across someone
that is researching the same family I am. I hope you can e-mail me at gracesmith54 at
sbcglobal.net.

My Notes
==========================================================================================

My first information on James Forrey came from John J Heffernan, Sr., who told me that
James was born in County Mayo and died in Hotel Dieu.

If there is no SOURCE, I have no PROOF! If the source is a person, the information is HEARSAY.
