Brick Wall: Gerrity Sister's

I need help with researching my paternal grandmothers side of the family.  To date I have only  been able to go back one generation on both my paternal grandmothers parents.  I have yet to get out of America even though I have rough dates for each and everyone of them coming to America.  Below I will list details of my  Gerrity family in hopes that I might be able to make some new connections.  Or at least someone can help point me in the right directions.

This is a story of three sister's who came to America, where I have just pieces of information collected over the years.

The three sisters are  Anna Gerrity, Bridget Gerrity, and Winfred Gerrity

To get the most out of this I am going to break each of the sister's so we can try and gather the most amount of information about them.

Anna Gerrity:
Born:  County Cord, Mayo, Ireland (abt  August 1872)  (from Marriage Cert)
Died (prior to 1980) Scranton or Dunmore, PA
Married William Mckenna: Feb 8 1890
Parents: Patrick and Jane (from Marriage Cert)
Immigration:  1886 per 1920 census.

William and Anna Mckenna

Bridget Gerrity:
Born:   Ireland (abt 1877) - per married cert
Died: Oct 27 1955, Scranton, PA obit
Married  Jun 24 1907 - Lawrence Toomey
Parents: Not Listed
Immigration:  1899 (per census)

Lawrence and Bridget Marriage

Winifred Gerrity:
Born:  Ireland, (abt 1885) per tombstone
Died:  April 19, 1971 (per tombstone) + cemetery plot info
Married:  John Brady (1911)
Immigration: 1902 (per 1930 census), cant read 1920 census that well, but looks like 1895.

As an added note their may have been a brother named Thomas, but I dont have any information on him at this time.  I found all the census info on, but unsure if I can link to them from here.  If that is allowed please someone post a comment and I will add links to the census records.  Anything that might help me solve this.
