Irish Friends: The James McNulty and Margaret Whelan Family of South Bend, Indiana in the Census Records

According to stories passed along from Anna Brennan to Barb (Grey) Cutter, our second great grandparents Martin Brennan and Catherine Corcoran traveled from at least New York to South Bend on the train with James McNulty and Margaret Whelan and John Frain and Cath Holden. At this point I don't believe that they traveled further than New York to South Bend with them. I have collected many church and other records on this family and would be happy to share my findings with anyone interested in them.

The following is a work in progress:
