Hi, I am from the buffalo new york area. looking for the OKeeffe and Keefe lines from buffalo and Dunkirk. We believe they came down from Canada with connection to the Donahue lines on several sides. also the Skain line. I have more info.
My Great Grandmother was Lucy O'Keefe and immigrated through Canada. She lived in Derry with her husband John Sullivan. They had one daughter Eileen Sullivan (born in Manchester England while visiting relatives) they came to the US from Canada when she was 4 years old. Eileen married Arthur Buehler ( his family is from Utica NY ). Lucy was a talented painter.
