Research of Jane O'Connor Foster - he may have emigrated from County Kerry in Province of Munster to Quebec, Canada and made his way down into NYS and to Albany when their son Michael Clarence was between 3 and 5 yrs old. The earliest Albany City Directory entry for Michael was 1852 and indicates he was living at 10 Cross Street. In 1853 he was living on Spruce Street. In 1854-55 he was on Van Schaick and listed as a "laborer." From 1857-1863 he is living on Church Street. By 1863 he has residence at Liberty Street. The last listing in 1865 is on Broadway. Julia (widow) is listed 1867 on Church Street.
Michael married Julia. (Julia was born in 1828 in Ireland and died on 3 Jan 1893 in Albany, Albany County, New York.)
