"Morning, Just a quick introduction from me before I rush off to work. We now live in Tenerife, although from the UK originally. My wife's ancestors on her Dad's side were from Ireland, Chute (Cork) and Graham (Leitrim)."
"Hi , I'm looking for info on Michael O'Brien and Catherine Walsh who married in St Nicholas Church Dublin in 1848. I believe they went to New York because my Great grandfather Thomas O'Brien was born in Brooklyn approx 1857. However…"
"Hi everyone! I'm an American O'Brien, born in Brooklyn, NY and living in New Jersey...but coming over for The Gathering!! DO you know if any O'Briens have an event planned? I'm coming with my son, Michael, in honor of my Dad,…"
I don't have much info on my Irish ancestors. Florence O’Neill married Mary (last name unknown). They had a daughter, Margaret O’Neill, born 15 Aug 1824 in Baltimore, Ireland, County Cork. Margaret married Daniel O’Brien in Portland, Cumberland, Maine in 1849. They had 4 children who were born in Maine, Indiana and Kentucky before the family settled in Missouri. I descend from their daughter, Mary Ellen (Nellie) who married Thomas Foley.
Barbara, I was wrong. I spelled Welsh, and should be Welch, like the grape. lol That still may be from Walsh, just different spelling.
I go back to Edmund Welch Sr, wife Ruth A. Annis, living in Wells, Main. Their son EdmundWelch Jr, b 1/31/1753, m Hannah Annis. I have records all the way to me.
There is much debate of who the father of Edmund Sr. is. Many theories are out there, but no proof.
