I'm curious...do you know who your grandfather or great grandfather..the McCarthys were..? I'll tell you why....my great grandfather was Timothy McCarthy....he was born in Ireland and settled in that area with at last count 7 children who scattered throughout upstate NY. In addition, my grandfather William McCarthy had several son's, my uncles...who were also scattered...I have traced back 4 generations from that area. However "in Irish Ridge" where these people settled..they only married Irish...many their 2 and 3rd cousins hence The Barneys, Lantrys Cotters ETC are related...there were also other McCarthys who settled there and some when they came over had their names changed to McCarty or McCather....ETC thru Immigration registration..many of them could not write..or read...were talking 1870-1905 do you know when your people came here or where exactly did they live...let me know if you will please.  (Mar 7, 2012 | post #5)

I'm doing research for my family tree and I'm looking for information of relatives who were born and lived in your area. I have several questions and I'm running into roadblocks so please sincerely help...Does anyone remember a Mary Barney who was born in Bombay,circa 1886-1928, Daughter of Mr Mrs William Barney, Married William McCarthy of Bombay in 1909 they lived on a farm there in Bombay, had 14 children (Warren,Patrick,Ha rry,Donald,Leo,Mar ie,Rosemary,Carmel ,Dorris,Genevieve, Helen, Marjorie,(a 3 yr old that died) and a baby born dead in which Mary Barney McCarthy herself died 3 days later. Mary Barney had 2 sisters "Had-die Barney",Della Barney, two brothers,Alfred and Ernie. I'm looking for more information on her, her siblings, her mother's maiden name etc. WILLIAM MCCARTHY lived there in Bombay born 1881-1946 son of Timothy McCarthy and Mary Cotter McCarthy. buried next to his wife there in Bombay Cemetery,(St. Joe's ?)He had2 possibly 3 siblings...Jess McCarthy 1874-1921, Ann or Anne McCarthy Crowley 1872-1935, Ann (Anne) was widowed( married a Crowley) but not sure which one or if they had children..? I do know she went to live with her brother William there in Bombay after Mary Barney McCarthy died in 1928 to help him raise his 12 remaining children. There may have been a 3rd sibling named Jenny...there is a reference to her in an newspaper article Calling her Mrs. Sullivan of Ogdensburg in one of Williams Obits. Somewhere there was a relative of William McCarthy's who also married a Lantry...related to the Lantrys of Helena..Henery w...? I think this is/was Bernard Lantrys father..? If anyone knows any of the history or relatives of these people please help... I know the McCarthy family farm was roughly 8 miles from the old GM plant..reportedly over 200 acres.... I've also come across the name Mulvanna..  (Feb 28, 2012 | post #1)

what in the heck has happened to the people & town of mas...

If you read my original post,(the one that started this thread)I was commenting on the "social decline" of the people there in Massena. If you took offense,sorry but so be it! I struggle to understand why this web board is filled with such amorous crap! I'm not naive, nor do I live in the past! I'm so Liberal I make the late Ted Kennedy look like a staunch Conservative. What I specifically referred to was the use of this web site and its questionable content. These are your friends, neighbors, and family. Your town doesn't support you...do you support it..? Naive not by a long shot...just disappointed in what I've seen. Review these threads...you tell me. I also question where the heck the moderators are also. You want things to change, it starts with you! You say you have no industry, no jobs, and no recreation, schools are crap etc. This is the world, make it better. Instead of writing a reply to why or if your neighbor is having unprotected sex with your mothers uncle at a bar, and if he is indeed an alcoholic.. try writing a well thought,concise, fact filled letter to the powers that be and to the local newspaper. Don't forget to use your spell check why your at it. I know Phil Mittica would be proud!  (Feb 20, 2012 | post #23)

" Go back to your world and never look back", wow thats a rather bleak response. I ask this of you MD. progress, recession,unemploy ment, welfare, are these the excuses you offer up as valid rational for crude,invasive,rep rehensible posts that appear here. These issues plague the entire nation, yet somehow I aways thought the people of Massena were beyond this callous,uncaring,s elf serving attitude. Perhaps you are right MD. maybe Massena has progressed to the point of screw you I'm getting mine trend of thought. Maybe we should rename the town Baltimore. I too lived in MD for 10 yrs, but in the back of my mind I had always believed that the community I grew up in was a genuine,caring, insightful demographic. It is sad to see it "progress " as you say. I ask again...is this who you really are...?  (Feb 19, 2012 | post #6)

I don't buy into that either...most of these threads exhibit the narrow mindedness similar to your reply. Apparently it is easier to point a finger than shake a hand in Massena.....  (Feb 19, 2012 | post #3)

what in the heck has happened to the people & town of mas...

Last night I was web surfing and I came across this site. I clicked on with enthusiasm in hopes of renewing an old acquaintance: my hometown. What I found was a site devoted to gossip, petty observations,meann ess and rank small minds. So I ask the following: what is this web site about? Is it your local rag to hurl insults and pass on your own inept humanity? Where is the Massena I knew, or thought I knew. My memories are fond but perhaps have grown distorted in my own mind. I remember as a little girl the thrill of going to the corner store,(Margosians on center st.)and buying ice cream sandwiches. Seeing J.J. Newberrys,Fisherma ns,Kinny Drugs in their splendor in the summerside walk sales. Dos anyone remember the ad's on WMSA? "You'll be glad you did"...quoted Simon..what a store! Was there anything better than the hot dogs at the "lunch counter" at Kinnys. Everybody knew everyone yes...but I for the life of me never remember this nastiness. Reviewing these threads, I see references to private citizens in the most inhumane aspects and it is indeed disheartening. From speculating about adultery,incest,al coholism, and general character of your own citizens!!!!! Shame....shame on you, anyone of you who took the opportunity to spread trash under the guise of "do you know" or "did you hear". I aways took pride in the fact that I grew up in a small town. Where is my home, where we raided gardens and ate tomatoes and apples while the owners looked on and smiled. The graciousness of ladies who worked at the Pratt Shoppe. You complain about your town, think its dying? Look in the mirror. What have you done to instill the very deficiency your grandmothers taught you! Where is your growth and vision? You can either wallow in your own sewer that you create or stand up and be that citizen I remember. If you don't, the next thread may be about your sex life,or your kids,husband,etc. You live in Mecca, not Payton Place.  (Feb 19, 2012 | post #1)
