Hoping for some insight/help. My great great grand father Charles Francis Dooley may have not been a Dooley. In the 1870 through 1880 census he is listed as a grandson of Patrick Dooley living in Cohoes, NY.
I have recently made connections with a descendant of my great great's uncle Michael Francis Dooley and we are not DNA matches.
So I guess what I am hoping for is that maybe some direction on who could assist with finding birth records or know who I could speak to regarding this.
Everything that I have come across to date indicates that he was the son of Patrick Dooley (Jr) and Mary Grady born in NYC on 08/27/1867. I have paid a NYC person to get me copies of Patrick and Mary's death certs but I knew that things just were not adding up.
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
