Thank you so much for your assistance. Yes, the Sands were Catholic, and, yes, I also
found Bernard's naturalizing record of 1837. The oldest census record for him is 1840
in Northfield, and Ellen was born in Stapleton, but it does not have details for others in
the family. I am trying to find out where exactly in Ireland they were born, I traced the
name Sands to Co. Louth, but cannot make any connections.
