Sorry I got the county wrong. I am researching my gg grandmother Ellen Heffernan O'Connor who died in Seymour in 1916. She had a brother Michael Heffernan, but there were 2 Michael Heffernan's in Derby in the 1880 census. One of them died in Derby in 1900 and his obituary says he had a brother Edward living at the Soldier's Home in Noroton, but it doesn't mention a sister. So I am chasing Edward's obit. I cannot make a connection on a census to Edward, other than a Civil War registration in Ansonia which says he is single.
Thanks for your time.
