  • Notes 
    • The following is from: Salem Maritime National Historic Site - Historical Research 1626-1990:
      In 1873 Johanna, Daniel, Catherine, and Michael Leahy bought the house at 106 Derby Street from the heirs of Henry Rope's widow, Mary, who died in 1865 (Snell 1976b:5-11). This brick house, now known as the Derby House, was built by Richard Derby, Sr. in 1761-1762, for his son Elias Hasket Derby, apparently on the occasion of his marriage in 1761. Richard Derby purchased the property, then vacant, in 1760. Elias and his family moved to another house in 1782, renting the former dwelling as a two-family house. The house and lot were sold to Captain Henry Prince in 1796 (he is believed to have built the West India Goods Store c. 1800-1805). In 1827 the Merchants Bank of Salem sold the Derby House property to John W. Osgood (Baltimore) and Henry Ropes. Henry Ropes became the sole owner in 1843 and he remained there until he died in 1861.
      In 1866 the Leahy family was listed at 3 Tuckers Wharf, which was also described as the "foot of Tuckers Wharf" (The Salem Directory 1866:100). Three years later, in 1869, Patrick, Daniel and Johanna boarded at 1 Palfrey Court, where they remained through 1872 (The Salem Directory 1869:98). By 1881, Johanna, Bartholomew, and Daniel Leahy were in residence at 106 Derby Street (The Salem Directory 1881:126). Ten years later, the Leahy family was still at No. 106, where they divided the house with Catherine and Hohn Noonan (The Naumkeag Directory for Salem, etc. 1890-91:243). Catherine Leahy obtained sole title to the property in 1895 (Snell 1976b:9), but by 1901, the residence, now known as 168 Derby, was occupied by Catherine Noonan, Thomas Deasy, and Michael Walsh. (CRO Note: Johanna died in 1900, Daniel moved to Beverly that same year.)
      ... The Leahy's collaborated to purchase the house, and the collaboration involved Johanna and her two adult sons, Bartholomew and Daniel. The elder sonse, who were married , set up separate households within the extended family that occupied the dwelling, while the unmarried children continued to live with their mother. Home ownership obviously stretched their resources to the limit since not only did all adult children work but Johanna also took in boarders within her household. In addition to obvious sources of work at the cotton mills, occupants of the former Derby mansion found jobs in the 1880s in what was left of the maritime industry (as a stevedore - one who loads and unloads ships in port).

      copied from RKS 3/2/80 Mumi memo: ["are her pencil notes"], {are my notes}:
      Johanna (Doyle) Leahy came to America from County Waterford with several of her seven children before 1865. The oldest of the children was Catherine Leahy {actually she was not the oldest} who came to Salem after the others were settled here. Catherine was 11 years old when she arrived in 1865 {?}. The father of this family did not come with them. Either he had died or was hospitalized in Ireland. The other members of the family were Bridget ["not married"], Bartholemew ["married Catherine Walsh -Barbara's aunt"; "Kate Leahy & a son who died"], Charles (also known as Mike) ["not married"], Daniel ["Anni & a son"], Mary ["Cronan"; "Annie Mallone & John"], Margaret ["Chas. Clo...tman"] (and Catherine).
      ["Johanna was burried with her son Charlie "Mike" Leahy in St. Mary's Cemetary, Salem, MA; sec. 4, Range 8, Cor 19. She died May 11, 1900 at 76 years."]
