I have the Kelly/ Kelley line in the U.S. Also note that in an 1855 Census, I find a JOHN RILEY age 24 from Ireland JOHN KEALLY age 22 from Ireland PATRCIK TIMOTHY age 27 from Ireland PATRICK HAPPON or HASSON age 25 from Ireland JOHN LOLLER age 23 from Ireland All were living with Thomas Kelly.

I am seeking information about the Fitpatricks and Malloys who are related to my grandmother.
