INTRODUCTION
I am researching my paternal (Judge, Loftus and Stone) and maternal (Gormley and Hoey) families.

Anthony Judge, son of John Judge, and his wife, Barbara Loftus, emigrated to South Hadley Massachusetts from Crossmolina in County Mayo in Ireland in 1861. Barbara's sisters had come to Holyoke MA in the late 1840's and early 1850's.

Patrick Gormley came to Boston, around 1850, although I have not been able to determine from where in Ireland. His son Thomas married Catherine O’Connor, who emigrated from County Cork in Ireland in 1884 at age 15. They lived in Connecticut.

Amy Stone descended from William Stone, 1608-1683, and from John Tilley, who came on the Mayflower. The Stone family lived in Connecticut for many generations. Amy Stone married Gerald Anthony Judge in 1923.

Patrick Hoey, son of John Hoey, emigrated from Cooldrummon in Sligo in Ireland and served in a Connecticut regiment in the Civil War. His granddaughter, Frances Hoey, married Martin E. Gormley.
