Look up Deedy in Websters Dictionary and you will see the following definition - \Deed"y\, a. Industrious; active. [R.] --Cowper. But to me Deedy is simply my last name and not a very common one at that. My Father always said "find yourself in a strange city? Open a phone book, find a Deedy and give them a call - chances are they are a relative." So, for all the Deedy's out there hello and welcome.

Alexander Deady's Immigration Information

My Great-Grandfather, Edward Deedy (aka Edmund Deady & Edward Deady) appears to have sponsored some of his younger brothers to join him in immigrating from Ireland to Worcester, Massachusetts. His brother, Alexander Deady's 1896 passenger information has been found. The documentation provides the following information:
Ship: S.S. Pavonia
Departed: Queenstown, Ireland on April 24, 1896
Arrived: Boston, Massachusetts on May 3, 1896
Name in Full: Alex. Deady
Age: 23

Married or Single: Single
Calling or Occupation: Laborer
Able to Read: yes
Able to Write: yes
Nationality: Irish
Last Residence: Firies
Seaport for landing in the United States: Boston
Final destination in the United States: Worcester
Whether having a ticket to such final destination: yes
By whom was passage paid: Brother
Whether in possession of money, if so, whether more than $30 and how much if $30 or less: $1

Not only did older brother Edmund pay for younger brother Alex's ship passage, it also appears he sponsored him for Naturalization. Likely my Great-Grandfather also helped his brother find lodging and a job when he arrived in the U.S.
