Today my genealogy search takes a veer to the left, or is it the right, in the discovery of the ancestors of the Doherty Family Line. From the Registers of Baptisms of St. Peter’s Church in Wilmington I have located the Baptism Registration of great-grandmother Mary Helen (née Sheridan) Doherty.
The date of great-grandmother Mary Helen’s baptism is 15 August 1866. A daughter of gg-grandparents Thomas and Helen (née Haley) Sheridan, her birth is recorded at the day previous, 14 August.
The Latin transcription –
15th Baptizavi Mariam Helena filiam Thomas Sheridan
et Helena Haley natam heri Sponsores Eugenium
Sheridan et Maria Hayes.
And my translation –
15th baptized Mary Helen, daughter of Thomas Sheridan
and Helen Haley, born yesterday, Sponsors Eugene
Sheridan and Mary Hayes.
And now I have some new information to add to my Sheridan Descendant Chart.

Stay-tuned, and enjoy,
