James             Ireland *** James Smiddy and his family lived with my grandparents in Brooklyn, NY. My grandfather, Richard Woods was from Killeagh and would be a second (or third) cousin to James.

1930 - N/A

Thanks to Kevin Hunt for the above information.

Àine, A Chara,

I see all is going well with your web site. I noticed you had some information from the US census of 1920. I was also looking through the census records and found a few interesting things.

The first US census was in 1790 and the first census with Smiddys in it was the 1820 census. Unfortunately, I didn’t have access to all of the censuses, the 1830, 1840, 1850 and 1880 censuses were not available of the web site. The 1890 census was destroyed in a fire in the 1920’s.

On a personal note, I found that there was a James Smiddy (and his family) living with my grandparents in Brooklyn, NY in 1920. James Smiddy must have been a 3rd or so cousin to my grandfather (Smiddy of Ballymakeigh mor on his mother’s side). Don’t know who he was but his wife and kids were born in the USA.

I am attaching the list I have of Smiddys from the censuses for you to peruse.

Slàn,

Kevin

  1. Welcome to the Geneabloggers family. Hope you find the association fruitful; I sure do. I have found it most stimulating, especially some of the Daily Themes.

    May you keep sharing your ancestor stories!
