The one's we love remain with us, for love itself lives on. And cherished memories do not fade, because a loved one's gone! The ones we love can never be, more than a thought apart. And as long as there is memory, they'll live on in the heart.
Are you a McCarry??? Are you looking for McCarry's?? Then you have come to the right place! Did you know that there are some famous McCarry's? Charles McCarry the author. Dr. Brian McCarry the reknowned Chemist. James McCarry the Irish Politician (Sinn Fein Party (North Antrim)) And I am sure many more! So how come there is a lack of genealocial info on the McCarry's?? Maybe you are famous in your own right! Tell us! But famous or not, let's face it only a select few percentage of the population worldwide can claim to share our name ... so that alone makes us unique! So lets start to compile some info and who knows maybe some of us will make a connection ... funnier yet ... maybe we are all related!! So "Sign my guest book" and share your info here. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In the mean time here is my info: Looking for any information on McCarry surname. And any specific info on: My great grandfather Daniel Francis McCarry...he was called Dan. born Feb. 4, 1876, in Cork City, Co. Cork, Ireland. He became a Naturalized Citizen of the US 8/13/1913 at the age of 36. **NEW INFO**Aug 31, 2008 (So I am assuming that he emigrated to the US some time around or before 1906 - 1908 as I believe the Naturalization process is 5-7 years.) **I have found Dan's manifest - Emigrated July 8 - 16, 1900 on the S.S. Servia from the Port of Queenstown to the Port of New York. The original manifest is in error but has been anodated with a correction. I have contacted the Ellis Island Foundation and they have made a correction note on the record. The entry name was Originally listed as Daniel McCarry but then someone went over the big "C" and made it a "G" so it looks and is entered as Daniel McGarry. He was a Registered Nurse at Manhattan State Hospital on Wards Island and went on to become a doctor and continued to work as a physician at the same hospital on Wards Island, NY. He married Ellen Strafford on 12/8/1912 at St Francis Xaxier R.C. Church, Bronx, NY by Fr. Thomas S. Harlin, SJ and their witnesses were Jeremiah Cream and Jane Hart(e) ( I have no info on these people) They had 3 children: John Francis: 1915 James Finnbar: 1916 Helen: 1919 Daniel died on May 31, 1939 at age 62, and is buried in St Raymond's Cemetary, Bronx, NY. **Aug 31, 2008 I have also found Daniel's brother Michael Vincent McCarry's manifest. He was born April 21, 1884. He arrived April 1907 on the S.S. Umbria - Queenstown to NY his U.S. sponsor is listed as his brother Dan McCarry @ Manhattan State Hospital, Wards Island. He married Mary T. Harte They had 8 children. And that's all I have at this time. I have added below some extra info below about Dan McCarry's wife, children & grandchild. Ellen Stratford...born in Dromina, Charleville, Co. Cork, Ireland had 3 children: James, born in NY, lived most of life in Calif, Retired US Navy Helen, died as a child in auto accident John F. McCarry, born in NY, retired NYC Fire Dept.(Hook & Ladder Co. 122, Brooklyn, NY) married: Elizabeth Hainsworth of CT had one child: John F McCarry, Jr. married Anne Farrell of Brooklyn NY any info on these specifics or on the surname in general would be greatly appreciated and I would be happy to share any info that I have and will respond to all inquires. Thanks! **Update 4/7/00 James McCarry married Mary Raphael last known address was in Oronville, Calif. they did for a time move to Ireland in the 80's as Mary transfered there for a time with her job. I am not sure if there were any children, if there was, it was probably 1 daughter, but she may have been the child of Mary from a previous marriage. Maybe, maybe not. **Update 7/25/00** "Daniel McCarry's Siblings" or "We're Not Alone" There are several cousins that I know had to of been the children of brothers of Daniel. And of course, I would like to find out who they are! So here is what I have: Vincent, Felix, Jane, Mary, Bernadette, Muriel & Eileen McCarry. Now as per my own father, John McCarry Jr,: Vincent and Felix were brothers both resided on Sterling (Pl.?), Brooklyn in the 30's -40's. Vincent married Odette. From 1991 - 1994 they resided in Tuscon, AZ. Last known address, 1994 was Reno, NV. Felix McCarry: The only info I have is that I remember that Felix died in Decemeber (around the 12th), 1963. Not sure where. **UPDATE 03/08/05 unknown McCarry father and mother This McCarry was a Police Officer, possibly a Capt. in Cork His wife was a shopkeeper. Siblings - 11 children, 8 boys & 3 girls Daniel F McCarry Michael V McCarry James McCarry died as an infant. Susan McCarry Jane McCarry 1 unknown female McCarry sister 5 unknown male Mccarry brothers Of these children Daniel & Michael emmigrated to New York, USA Other brothers may have also. The McCarry's were shop keepers and the 3 daughters stayed in Cork to run the shops. One or more brothers emmigrated to Africa. One brother to Austrailia. Michael V McCarry married: Mary Harte in 1909 They had 7 children Vincent married: Odette They had 3 children: Peter, Maryann & Jane Felix married: Helen Kistler They had 1 child: Michael V Muriel married: John Clark They had no children Jane, Mary, Bernadette & Eileen McCarry. These 4 sisters never married. Jane and Mary. Jane: dob 7/11/1911 - 05/??/80 Mary: dob 11/26/1916 - dod 9/18/95 Jane and Mary were sisters. I know that in the 70's - 80's they lived together in Babylon, NY. Sometime in the 90's, they moved to Northport, NY. At this time Eileen McCarry. another sister was also listed in the phone book. They must have moved or been placed in a nursing home in Commack, NY in the mid 90's before they both passed away as Social Security lists their last benefits as going to Commack, NY. I have tried throughout the years to try to make contact with these two ladies to no avail. Maybe they were liery, who knows maybe there was a falling out between the families. That is a mystery to be solved. To Be Continued........ **UPDATE 03/08/05 A surprise email arrived from Michael McCarry and to my surprise he is a cousin and the grandson of the brother that I knew in my heart that my Great Grandfather had to have. His Grandfather Michael V McCarry is that brother. He was kind enough to tie up some my lose ends of the above named relatives and who is related to who. I will be happily very busy with all the updates I have just received, knowing that this will make it easier to trace back a little further. I have emailed Mike and hopefully will be able to share more info very soon. To Be Continued..... And So Dear Cousins, As always if you can help, have any kind of a lead, please share. I am always willing to share what I have ... even if we are not related. I now have a scanner and hope to soon get a page up with pictures! Maybe that will jar a few minds with fresh ideas. And remember if you are doing your own research ... interview those older members of your families to find out info, Cause when they are gone, they are gone and so are the stories and the details of their lives. So start taking it all down. As always, Ellen McCarry Hopps **UPDATES 03/08/05 Rita McCarry: My Dad thinks Rita married a McCron and may have lived in New Jersey. She would have been in touch with the Strafford/McLaughlin clan in Limerick City, Co. Cork or Dromina, Charleville, Co. Cork. ****Actually Rita is Rita Finn Macron & her sister Kitty Finn Brennan are the daughters of Peter & Moira O'Donnell Finn Moira & her sister Maureen O'Donnell McLaughlin are the daughters of John & Hannah Strafford O'Donnell
