In my quest to find O’Connell descendants, in one of the many obits I have read online, I came across Elizabeth Pratt Lacey (who is Catherine O’Connell Pratt’s daughter). Elizabeth Pratt married Alton V Lacey. On Ancestry.com, there are a few family tree’s that date back to the 1600’s. What a wealth of information his family has. I have sent out many emails to all invested in those tree’s. I have received a few responses, basically stating they would get back to me, love to get info I have or to contact another person (from whom they got their info). So I will continue to email these people until I get a response. still hoping for the connection that her mother is indeed the daughter of John and Bridget (Curran) O’Connell.

Will let you know what this turns up as well. I do feel like I am turning into some type of history detective. Just looking for the facts. I do hope this info proves to be correct, otherwise I have a ton of information on the wrong family.
