This being Saint Patrick’s Day and all, I wish I knew more about Timothy’s father’s side of the family. What I have gleaned from my research is that Joseph A. Carey was a second-generation Irishman. He worked as a fireman until he was sidelined after an accident. According to the census record from 1930 below, he was employed at the time in real estate. He died, year and age unknown, after a stroke he suffered in an elevator on Wall Street.
I’m sure Tim would join me in celebrating his Irish ancestry by wishing you all a happy and safe Saint Patrick’s Day! Go easy on the green beer now! Cheers!
