John Mulvaney Family in 1865

Remember when we found Patrick Mulvany's family in 1860, with the family that appeared to be that of his uncle John at the same address? Well, I've yet to find the James and Bridget Mulvan(e)ys in the 1865 NYS census, but this appears to again be James's brother John. (It looks like they're no longer living in the same building, though it's difficult to say who moved.) John lists his age as 40, and Ann is 32. Their children are Michael, 13; Ann, 11; Patrick, 8; Mary, 7; Rosanna, 5; Catharine, 2 1/2; and Adelaide, 1 month. The last 3 have been born since last we saw them. All 7 of Ann's children are still living.

Consistent with the 1860 census, Michael is listed as having been born in Ireland, so it would seem that they immigrated between 1852 and 1854. He's a student, and his father is still a carpenter. John is a naturalized citizen.
