>I am trying to pin down a date of marriage and dates of two baptisms,

> Patrick KELLY, b. abt. 1820 possibly Galway, Ireland>US ???; married
> Mary Ann DOLAN b. 1825, Galway; d. 1890, Allegheny City/Northside,
> Pittsburgh; buried St. Mary's Catholic cemetery, Lawrenceville, PA.
> Parents of two known children: Patrick/Patsy KELLY, b. abt. 1851/52,
> PA; and Mary Anna KELLY, b. June 1854, PA.
> Patrick died AFTER the birth of Mary Anna KELLY, 1854, as widow Mary
> Ann nee DOLAN married Richard HALL, Sept. 1856, St. Paul, Allegheny
> County, PA.
