Looking for any help or information in regards to my great-great-great grandmother born in 1826 in County Clare, Ireland. Unsure when they moved to Elmira, NY area. Her parents name were Thomas Leyden and Margaret King. Bridget married a gentleman name Bartholemew Baker. I have seen a J. in front of some documents, unsure why? I know they had at least four children. Bridget(referred to as Birdie), Mary, my great-great grandmother, John and a baby that died. Moved from Elmira, NY somewhere between 1863-1867 to Pennsylvania. Their child Mary was the only one that I know of that was born in NY. Please let me know if anyone can help.
