Other marriages:
FINAN, Delia
DARLIN, Andrea

Mike was the third Michael to be born to Dominic and Catherine, the first two Michaels having died as children.

Mike emigrated to the United States in 1891, probably with his sister Annie. He lived for about 10 years in Newport, Rhode Island where he worked as a coachman for George Peabody Wetmore at Chateau-sur-Mer, one of the earliest Newport mansions. Mr. Peabody Wetmore served as a governor of Rhode Island for two terms in the l880s and as a Senator from 1894 until 1913. The fact that Mike's first marriage, to Delia Sullivan in 1900, took place in Washington D.C. - at St. Stephen's Church on Pennsylvania Avenue, not far from the White House - indicates that Mike may have spent a good deal of time in D.C. during his employment by Mr. Peabody Wetmore. However, Mike appears to have left his job with the Senator not long after his marriage as his first child, Catherine, was born in New York City.   

In New York Mike and his family lived at 16 Grace Court Alley, Brooklyn Heights, which was rented, before purchasing 308 East 39th St., in Flatbush, Brooklyn in late 1906. Mike had continued to work as a coachman when he moved to New York but, possibly because automobiles were replacing horses and carriages and the job of coachman was becoming obsolete, Mike was working as a railroad guard by the time of the 1920 census. By 1925 he was a conductor on the B.M.T. (Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit) subway.

Mike is buried in Holy Cross Cemetery in Brooklyn with his second wife, Delia (Finan), their son, Francis, and Kitty, a daughter from his first marriage. In the same cemetery is the grave of his first wife, Delia (Sullivan), and their infant daughters, Annie and Elizabeth.

Bridget (Delia) SULLIVAN was born about 1878 in Ireland. She died on 2 Oct 1906 in 16 Grace Court Alley, Brooklyn Heights, New York City. She was buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, Brooklyn, New York City. Bridget married Michael (Mike) J. GORDON on 14 May 1900 in St. Stephen's Church, Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington D.C..
