How to find parents to my great grandfather Michael James Barrett
For over 20 years I have tried to find parents for Michael James Barrett, b/Co Mayo, Ireland 1846? Married Mary Manley in Philadelphia, PA have many records but not connected to him. I am going to be 85 this week and would like to have this information. He died in Archbald Boro, Scranton, Lackawanna Co, PA in 1892 I believe.
There are many Michael Barrett's in that area. My great grandfather Michael had many children, One of whom was my grandfather William Barrett who m/Mellie Mae Pearce in PA. I have collected many items related to him? But its late at night now and I am getting too sleepy to search a file I have on him, its in my records on the Family Search. Appreciate any suggestions.
