The story has it the five brothers from Kilkenny or Cork - depending on who is telling the story, were "asked" to leave Ireland. One or two went to the USA while the rest went to NFLD. My great grandfather, Thomas Connors (may have been O'Connor back then) was born in and around 1860s but not sure if he was born in Ireland, along the journey, or in NFLD. I am heading to Ireland July 19 and can't wait to research!

My great-grandfather, William Connors, came from Ireland to Ohio in 1849, perhaps Louth, Ireland. He married Mary Flynn in Akron, Ohio. They moved to the Town of Mitchell, WI. in 1854. They then moved to Negaunee, MI. in 1870. He died in 1907 in Negaunee, Mi.
