red mail Looking for relatives
I have been researching my family for some 20 years and am at a dead end, no pun intended !! My great great great grandfather William and his brother Alexander WISHART came to the Miramichi, New Brunswick around 1775 to fish and export salmon. In 1776 they left the area, on board HMS "Viper" under the command of Captain CHAMBERS for the Great Lakes, due to being raided by American privateers. The fought in this war against the Americans from 1776 until 1783 both receiving commissions. After fighting on the Great Lakes they returned to the Miramichi and formed a company called "WISHART and Company" with the intention of exporting salmon. Their partners were Andrew CHEAP and a Robert REID who had also fought with them. William married a Charlotte TAYLOR in 1785 and moved to Tabusintac just north of the Miramichi. Charlotte TAYLOR is referred to as the "Mother of Tabusintac" subject of a book by Sally ARMSTRONG. Sally is my 1st cousin with her mother being a WISHART. It is unknown what happened to Alexander. Christopher WISHART, a shoe maker, arrived in the Miramichi around 1820 and is believed to have been a cousin. He died in 1853 and is buried in Newcastle, NB. His headstone lists him as coming from Dumfries, Scotland. I have been unable to find out William nor Alexander's dates of birth, where they were born or what ship they arrived on. I have had my DNA completed with the hope of finding out where in Scotland our family originated. It is believed that they had experience in fishing salmon and the military Any information would be appreciated.
red mail Looking for my maternal grandmother's family.
I am searching for my maternal grandmother's family. Her name was Ellen Power and she was born around 1890 in Dungarvan. I believe she traveled to America with a sister. She died of pneumonia when my mom was 3 which was in 1928. She was married to a man named Theodore Schneider (Snyder) who abandoned my mom when his wife died. The only things she knows about either of them she learned from her godparents whose last name was Lenane. My mom has been to Dungarvan as have I, and we were surprised to see the Power name on so many of the shops, and bars. If you can be of any assistance, it would be greatly appreciated.

red mail Quarry / Quarrie / McQuarrie family
I am researching my family history from Dungarvan, County Waterford, to Liverpool (around 1850), to Birkenhead, Cheshire, and finally to Philadelphia. My great-grandfather was Daniel Quarry (b 1865), second son of James Quarry who was married in 1856 to Margaret O'Neill at St. Francis Xavier church (RC) in Liverpool. James' parents were James Quarry and Catherine McGrath, and Margaret's parents were Daniel and Bridget O'Neill; all were from Dungarvan. I assume that the family left Ireland because of the famine and went across to Liverpool. In the 1861 census, they are listed in the Vauxhall area; in the 1871 and 1881 census, they lived at 2 Elizabeth St., Birkenhead, Cheshire. James' occupation is consistently listed as boot and shoemaker. Daniel came to Philadelphia in the late 1880s, married Mary Agnes Jennings (from county Mayo) in 1891 in Phila., and had six children. Only 2 survived, James D. Quarry and Leo Quarry.

red mail catherine murray circa 1927 & county home, dungarvan
Hi, I'm doing some research on my late father's background. I have his original birth certificate ... which tells me he was born on January 10 1927 to a Catherine Murray at the County Home, Dungarvan (which I understand was an updated version of a workhouse or some kind of social welfare accommodation.) My dad's birth certificate reveals little about his mother ... except that she came from Knocknacrooha, near Dungarvan, and apparently wasn't married at the time of his birth (or at least, no father is declared on the document). I've checked the 1911 Irish Census online ... but can find no reference to a Catherine Murray in Knocknacrooha at that time (although I found several references to people with that name in County Waterford, who would have been of child bearing age in 1927.) I have no idea if my father had any other family. He never spoke about his background. Best wishes.
