||Maghera / Magherafelt, 1855 - 1885
||Thomas E. Convery
| I am trying to discover the birth place of my grandfather, one Joseph Convery. Born in Maghera/magherafelt area of Co. Derry in 1855-1865. He arrived in the US with his wife Mary A. (maiden name unknown) about 1887 in the Philadelphia, PA area. Mary A. died after a difficult child birth where the infant died also in 1891. Joseph married my grandmother, one Mary McNally in 1892 in Philadelphia where they raised a family. Joseph died in 1930 and his obituary states that he was ... late of County Derry, Ireland. Any help will be grately appreciated. - Thanks, Tom
