Michael F Keane

Birth Name Michael F Keane
Gender male
Age at Death 88 years, 5 months, 9 days

Narrative

Michael is recorded in his father's household on Islandeddy in 1901. Is it an error or was he visiting? He was naturalized in Massachusetts in 1904 and I am almost positive the residence requirement was 5 years at the time.

Events

Event Date Place Description Sources
Birth September 6, 1877 Islandeddy, County Galway, Ireland   1a
Event Note

See notes at Michael's baptism record. It definitely says he was born September 6, 1877 and was baptized September 11. His SSDI says October 12, his naturalization says October 20. And there is the following index to the civil registration below at familysearch. October 12 might be when the civil registration took place. Also, I have heard that there was a fine for late registration of a child's birth. To avoid the fine, parents would report their child's birth as later than it actually was.
