Mary Hassett b. 3 Aug 1841 Ireland (unknown county/parish), emigrated from Dublin to USA with parents/siblings arriving on barque Huma 26 March 1849, settling in Upstate NY where the descendents yet live.  She is the only child of the immediate family to marry, hence ending this family's Hassett line. She married Matthew Moore.  Her brother was a US Civil War veteran.

Searching for origin of John Hassett b.c.1806 Ireland m? Catharine Batterby/Battersby b.c.1800 Ireland, immigrated to US 26Mar1849 from Dublin  with kids Ellen b.1836 Ireland, Mary b.1841 Ireland, John Jr. b.1843 Ireland, Catherine b.1847 Ireland -d. 1849 at sea.  I do hope to find their county of origin and more info on the Hassett & Batterby lines.  Mary, my gg-grandmother, was the only to marry so the name is dead in my family.  Would like to find if John Sr. had siblings & where they went.  I realize how common the name is and every family seems to hold a John, an Ellen, a Mary, and a Catherine.  ;>  I once found records of similar names in St. Andrews Parish in Dublin but have no proof it was them.  Buried in US in Catholic Cemetery except Mary, whose marriage was to a Protestant man.  The family has been Protestant since.  I am aware of other Hasset families on same ship, Huma, and Hassett families who also settled in Genesee Co, NY.  Not sure if they're related.  A Hugh Hassett, 13, was living with the family in 1850 census but went to live with Stafford, NY Hassett family and settled in Stafford area as an adult.  Thanks.

My Irish ancestors came to Canada about 1840. The surname is HENRY but there may also be an Irish connection to the surname BELL and WATSON. I am still trying to tie down a specific location in Northern Ireland and now I am focused on Londonderry.  I am also using DNA in my genealogy search for our HENRY origins. The surname WATSON appears to be connected to Tyrone.

One of my cousins visited Ireland last year and hired a guide. They did a little genealogy searching in Tyrone for the surname HENRY without any luck. This was before our research indicated the HENRY name may be connected to Londonderry and not Tyrone.

I am now communicating with Dr. Tyrone Bowes, http://www.irishorigenes.com/ who claims, for a fee, to be able to pin point an origin for the family surname.

Good luck, Carol Ann. I have found more DNA matches on 23andme than FTDNA.

Regards, Bob

Comment by Carol Ann Harvey on June 9, 2013 at 7:56pm
It was strange Robert because you recommended 23andme and then I got more and more busy with mum and didnt get to do the testing. Very recently at a genealogy society meeting the two sites recommended to me were 23andme and FTDNA. I got my 23andme part results yesterday and waiting on the rest of the ancestral data within the next fortnight. Best wishes.

I am M222 and don't find many Quinns in that group on FTDNA or where my Y group puts me with matches. Hope your Mom does well, Carol Ann. I am also on 23andme. Bob Quinn

Comment by Carol Ann Harvey on June 9, 2013 at 6:57pm
But of course, this isn't the Quinn DNA unfortunately. I don't know anyone with the Quinn surname to ask them to take the test for the Y-chromosome. So who knows what good my DNA is going to be to me apart from finding people with different surnames that I have no knowledge of. Could be interesting though. The V Haplogroup is a rarity of 4%.
Comment by Carol Ann Harvey on June 9, 2013 at 6:53pm
Robert Quinn - apologies I had to drop off the scene while caring for my mum and she is currently in hospital. However, I have had the 23andme testing done and my maternal line is V2 as is mums of course.

The first report for the O'Hourihane DNA project has been published.

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~skibbgirl/Houriha...

The project seeks to recruit people with any of these Irish surnames in their ancestry: Arragan, Handrahan, Hanrahan, Haran, Harhan, Harragan, Harraghan, Harrigan, Haughran, Herrigan, Horan, Horgan, Horohan, Horrigan, Hourahan(e), Hourican, Hourigan, Hourihan(e), Howard, Organ

Male Y-DNA testers with this surname and anybody with one of these Irish surnames in their ancestry who takes an A-DNA test (Family Finder at FTDNA) is welcome to join the project.

Do any of you great people have any information regarding Penal Colonies in Australia?  According to my records my G-grandmother was born in Connecticut USA and then went to join her father in New South Wales.  She subsequently came to Ireland in 1869 where she remained the rest of her life.  Any help would be greatly appreciated as this brick wall is smothering me!
