Hi, My 2x great grandmother Bridget Teague come to Australia and all we know about her is that the shipping records said ...Occupation; Servant, 16 yrs old, Rel; Catholic came to Adelaide, South Australia, on the "BURLINGTON" The ship Burlington left from Plymouth 28th October 1856, arrived at Port Adelaide, South Australia 13th February 1857. She married John Howe from County Clare in 1858 in South Australia and they went on to have 8 Children. Bridget Howe ( Nee Teague) was born Abt of 1839/1841 In Tyrone and her father was Peter Teague born around the time of late 1700s to early 1800s other then this we do not know much about the family. I believe she might have had two brother by the name Peter and Michael but I am not 100% sure that this information is correct. I would love to contacted anyone that knows anything about this family. Thank you for taking the time to read this.

Kimberley Harrigan

Hi, my name is Kimberley Harrigan, I have been trying to research my family lineage, since unfortunately both of my grandparents on my dads side of the family passed away and we unfortunately don't know much of our ancestry details, but I know my last name is Irish and may have some link to county Cork, and my grandmother on my mother's side is Walsh, and unfortunately don't know what region that could be from, any further information would be amazing to know and to share with my dads family and my grandmother as well.

I am interested in locating where in Ireland great great grandfather Michael Connor born about 1826 originated from and who his wife and any other family members were. Michael was a Horse Dealer so I gather he may have been an Irish Traveller. His daughter Mary says on an English census she was born 1854 in Cumberland. England so maybe when the family were travelling around the various Horse Fairs! Mary at sometime moved to Liverpool England I do not know if she was with her family or alone. There she married John Maguire in Liverpool 1870. John was a Boot maker who was born Cavan. Ireland about 1852. If anyone can shed any light on my Connor family or heritage I would be very grateful.

I'm looking for information of my Kinnear and McGrath ancestors from Cappoquin, Waterford, Ireland 4 x Great Grand parents - Henry Kinnear born ? between 1795-1813 married 1834 (marriage license bond Diocese Waterford and Lismore) Rebecca McGrath born ? 1807 They had at least 4 children all born in Cappoquin, Waterford, Ireland Mary Ann Kinnear 27th December 1835 (my 3 x Great Grandmother) Annestia Kinnear Lodger 1838 Female Frances Kinnear Lodger 1839 Female Henry Ireton Kinnear Lodger 1841 Male Rebecca and the children (and maybe Henry but I don't think so - think he may have died) all moved to Stalybridge sometime after 1851 and before 1858. At that time Stalybridge was a major Cotton town, Rebecca died in Stalybridge in 1858 aged 51 Mary Ann married Michael Crabtree in 1860 and her marriage certificate shows Henry Kinnear has her father but not if he is deceased. At the time of her death in 1933 Mary Ann was 97 and the oldest woman in Stalybridge, she named two of her children after her parents. I'd be grateful if anyone has any further information about Henry or Rebecca in particular their parents or any siblings. Thank you

Sloan

This is a story about Joseph Adam Sloan. I am having a difficult time confirming he is from Ireland. Anyway, there was an old family story that both my 4th great grandfathers (Adam Walker and Joseph Adam Sloan) came together to this country from County Tyrone, Ireland when they were children (9 years old is what I was told). I don't believe they were indentured but rather they came with a relative because their parents stayed in Ireland. I have had no way of proving this but I believe it's plausible. I know there were Walkers (possibly brothers or uncles) who came from Ireland and ended up in Pennsylvania with Wm. Bradford. I have traced Adam in Pennsylvania up until 1813 when he died of Yellow Fever; however, I found no trace of Joseph Adam in Pennsylvania. I did find Joseph Adam in Ohio (Meigs Co. I believe). I know that Hester Walker, Adam's wife, moved to Ohio with some of her sons from Pennsylvania a few years after Adam's death; and they lived in or near Meigs Co. It appears that the Sloans and Walkers were quite close because not only did Samuel Walker marry Sara Sloan, but one of their daughters, Anna Marcella, married first Thomas Sloan (I believe a grandson of Joseph Adam), then David Sloan (I think he was a cousin). This isn't proof of anything but it does add some credibility to the story. As described to me by a 4th freat granddaughter of Adam Walker and Joseph Adam Sloan.

Train: We believe Thomas was born a Lowe. Family members had been told that Thomas lived in either Illinois or Indiana at some time. There was some mention of a family member being married to a Native American or killed by them. It is possible that he was a member of the Orphan Train and lived with a family named Clarenbole. He used both names Lowe and Clarenbole. He is buried in the Linden Hill Cemetery on the Brooklyn/Queens border in NYC with Mary Lowe believed to be his grandmother because the age difference is too great to be his mother. When his daughters were baptized the father's name was originally written as Thomas Clarenbole. The name Clarenbole is crossed out in the church record book and changed to Lowe. The first census we find him in that we are sure its him is the 1875 NY census where he is listed as Lowe even at the time he is listed on his daughters' baptism records as Clarenbole. We have him as a possibility in the 1860 as Thomas Lowe as an 11 year old in thy NY City Prison census for petty larceny. The petty felony charges lead us to believe the Orphan Train possibility. 12 years ago Flag Hide

Elizabeth Duxbury

My grandfather Thomas Kirkpatrck I was told married in 1880 in Westport, County Mayo. He was 36 yo. He migrated to Western Australia in 1886 and died in Perth WA in 1925. his parents Thomas Kirkpatrick, a Schoolmaster, and Margaret Costello were named on his death certificate. They belonged to the Church of Ireland. I am no longer a member of Ancestry, they could not verify Grandfather’s marriage or trace his parents. My grandmother would have given the details for his death certificate, she was 16 years younger than her husband and would surely have known his parents correct names. I would like to know where they lived and if Thomas had been married before. Did Thomas own a property to sell before he left Ireland or was he affected by the famine and looked for a better life?

She immigrated to the US between 1901 (she is showing on the 1901 Irish census) and 1911 (not on the 1911 Irish Census). She may have come over with her older sister Mary. I would like to find out about the siblings that stayed in Ireland ( I think) and what happened to the family. There is Thomas, John and Delia and maybe one more. The 1911 census indicate that 8 children were born and 7 are still living, but I can only account for 6. My 3x grandparents names were Theady (Theddy) and Bridget (maiden name Queenan).

I am searching for my great great grand Mother Ruth Ann Newman, daughter of Emilie and Thimothee. We think she was born approximately in 1832, possibly in Laois, Ireland. Ruth Ann Newman arrived in Canada at about 16, possibly on the JJ Cooks Envoy in 1847 bound for St John New Brunswick. Her father had a doctor friend in Canada who welcomed her into his home. She was traveling alone. She was Protestant. She possibly gave up to become a Catholic in order to marry William Mcgrath on May 10, 1853. They had seven children in 20 years. She died on February 24, 1913 at the advanced age of 81 and was buried in Ste-Adelaide-de-Pabos, Quebec, Canada.

I am the granddaughter of Stewart Hall, who was born in Castlerock, Northern Ireland, married my grandmother, Ellen McKenna of Caledon, immigrated to Canada after they eloped and married in England before they boarded a ship to Eastern Canada, eventually ending up in Vancouver, BC. My grandfather left Castlerock during WW1, fought in the British Army, then returned to Caledon and was placed in charge of keeping the peace on the border between the north and south of Ireland. He met my grandmother there when he frequented the town's pub which my grandmother's family owned and operated. They eventually became romantically involved, however their romance became a scandal as he was a protestant and she was a Catholic, hence they ended up eloping. Apparently it was quite a scandal as told to me by other relatives that live in Caledon. I travelled to Castle rock in 2019, but was unable to recover much information about my grandfather's family and no one there knew about him, although they knew some of his siblings (since deceased). I plan to travel back there and investigate further; luckily I was able to obtain much information about my grandmother as relatives still live in Caledon and Dublin. I would appreciate any help to provide me more information on the Halls from Castlerock

Several family trees on Ancestry have a Barbara Mcgugan married to a Richard Mcconnochie but I don't think she is the same but cannot prove it. Is Mcgugan and McGowan possibly the same person or are these name interchangeable Barbara McGowan and Richard McConnochie lived in Ardrossan, Scotland and had a daughter Isobella McConnochie abt Jul 1828, my 2nd great grandmother. They also had daughter Mary Ann (1831) and Barbara (1833), possibly others. Isobella married William McNeely abt 1848 and moved to Kilbirnie, Scotland. sometime before 1860 they moved to America.

I am looking for a Catherine Kinney, who was born in Ireland on May 1, 1844. She was an Irish Catholic and the first I can find of her in the US is with her marriage certificate in Springfield, MA, USA married to Alexander Cook of Canada. Alexander's parents Lily Ross and John Henry Cook are mentioned as his parents, no parents listed for Catherine. Alex/Catherine raised their family in Arthur, Wellington, Canada until just before 1880. I find she gave birth to a daughter in MI in 1878 or 1879. Eventually they moved to Virginia, MN where Alexander died in 1808 and Catherine died in 1918. On Catherine's death certificate it stated her birthdate and her father's name as John Kinney, unknown for mother. I have found a John Kinney family in Onondaga, New York, USA with a daughter Catherine of the same age. However, the family has had their DNA done, as have I and there is not a match. I am also looking for more information on Alexander Cook's father, John Henry Cook who was born in either 1812 or 1819 depending on documentation. John Henry Cook wrote in his bible that he was born in Antrim, Ireland. I believe he was protestant, but I can not confirm that fact. John Henry Cook married Lily Ross in 1838 in Wellington County, Ontario. When he came and if he came with family, I do not know. Thank you for your time. If a genealogist would like to contact me, feel free. I can not research any further from the states. Jean

In google I learned that "Aigneis" is an old Irish-Celtic name. Could Agnish be Irish? Do we get our Irish dna from her? Church books have little information from these early days, but Agnish' descendants are many living today.
