Lally Family

The Lally Family, worked hard, played hard, and fought hard. One would never accuse this family of being boring. I have a lot of newspaper articles covering this families sorted escapades.

A story relayed by my Great Aunt Helen Higgins Leveck & my Great Grandmother Elizabeth Lally Leveck was that John Lally Sr. went back to Ireland to try and get family papers and their were none. I doubt highly likely that it was Ireland, but more likely Connecticut. Which after a lot of searching I found a few baptismal records at St. Mary’s in Stratford, CT. But, no marriage or birth documents through the Town Clerks Office or the County offices.
