Peter Burke (b. 1861 and d. 1939) left Moylough, Co. Galway with his sister, Delia A., in 1888 on board the Celtic (o/o Queenstown). They were destined for San Francisco - to stay with an aunt Mary (nee Murphy), I think.
[Their remaining family were Patrick, Thomas, Ulick, Julia and Mary (who later married a Tom Donohue].
Delia married Michael J. KELLY, a native of Co. ROSCOMMON (d. 10/12/1937) and lived for most of her life at NOE STREET, San Francisco.
Their children were
Margaret (later Mrs. ALEXANDER)
For a short period Delia's/Peter's brothers THOMAS F. and ULICK lived with the kelly family in Noe Street. I believe Thomas and Ulick later became electricians. Thomas predeceased Delia - family legend has it that one of the brothers died in WW1, but this has yet to be confirmed.
Delia A. KELLY died in 1934.
Peter BURKE was a cable car gripman with the Market Street Railway for most of his time in San Francisco (1888 - 1905/06). He returned for about a year to Ireland but ended back in San Francisco in 1899. He had addressed at 1632 Fulton where he lived with a family called OHLAND (John - a cable car conductor - & Celia) and earlier at 1904 McAllister.
Peter later married Bridget O' LOUGHLIN of Moylough and had nine childern - Margaret, Mary, Juliet, Thomas, Peter (my father), Nellie, Ulick, Frances, Bridget Philomena.
I am interested to hear from anyone with a connection to the above.
