red mail Condron /LEstrange Families
I am looking for the family of my Great grandmother Bridget Condron / Conron/ Condran. She was born in Mullingar 1834, we believe her parents were Edward & Elizabeth (Nee L'estrange) Condron. Bridgets siblings were James Condron born 1826 & Mary Condron born 1831 in Mullingar. In June 1849, Bridget & her sister Mary arrived in Adelaide Australia, on board the Barque Inconstant, they were with the 40 potato famine orphan girls from Mullingar. Bridget married William Selleck in August 1853 at Hutt river South Australia. It seemed to be a happy & prosperous marriage, she owned a home and ran a small market garden in Clare South Australia. Bridget died in1916 and was survived by 6 of her 10 children. Little is known of her sister Mary after arriving in Australia. We think her brother James Condron married Catherine Casey in Mullingar 1851 and had 3 children. Bridget born 1855, Mary Ann 1861 & Ann in 1864. Hoping somebody knows of them. Thanks Lyn
red mail Skelly - Carey - Mclean or McLain
I am looking for the family of James Skelly Senior (born abt. 1760) and Catherine McLean/McLain (born abt. 1760) from Mullingar, Ireland. Three of their sons, James Garrett, Michael and Edward emigrated to St. Columban, Quebec, Canada. We were told by family members over the years that they were from Ballinacarrigy. James Garrett Jr. (family letters refer to James as Garrett, although Quebec documents record him as James), Michael (b. abt. 1797) & his wife, Elizabeth (nee Carey, b. abt. 1807) and Edward (b. 1787) & his wife, Catherine (nee Carey, b. 1805) Skelly boarded a ship in about 1825 and crossed the Atlantic together. (Two Skelly brothers married two Carey sisters and James Jr. (Garrett) was single). James Jr. (Garrett) returned to Ireland in 1826. He gave his lot to Michael on October 18, 1826 (Notary: Nicolas Benjamin Doucet, #14074). He married in Ireland and his daughter Catherine immigrated to the states; married a man named Duane and settled in Detroit, Michigan. His son (no record of a name) settled in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. The remaining Skellys managed to cultivate 6 acres of land in St. Columban, Quebec - by 1831. Their primary produce was corn. Meanwhile, space was getting tight inside the house. By this time, Elizabeth and Michael had 8 children all under the age of 14 yrs., (Canadian Generation 1) Mary (b. 1828), James (b. 1829), Bridget (b. abt. 1830), Owen (b. 1834), Patrick (b. 1835), Kate (b. 1837), Ann (b. 1839) and Michael (b. 1841). Edward and Catherine built their own shanty on lot 148 around 1830 due to the tight quarters in Michaels home and to accommodate the arrival of their baby daughter, Antoinette (b.1831-d.1831). In 1834, Edward and Catherine decided to leave St. Columban. They gave lot 148 to Michael on March 17, 1834 (Notary: Augustus Mackay, #1291) and moved to Albany, New York, 8th Ward. They had 1 daughter Antoinette (born 1830 & died 1831) & 4 sons son, Owen (born 1831), James (born 1834), Edward (born 1836) and John (born 1840). John became a plumber and married Mary. Catherine lived with John and Mary after Edwards death and remained there until she went blind & was institutionalized until her death in 1883. Any information would be most appreciated and likewise if this family belongs to your tree and you need support in Canada/U.S.A. Sincerely, Kelley

red mail Ann & Rose Rogers
I am seeking information regarding my great, great grandmother Ann Rogers. According to bank records from the Irish Bank of New York in 1854, states she was a native of Irishtown 2 miles from Mullingar. She also states that she came to the United States on the ship Louisiana out of Liverpool. I believe that was in 1847. She further stated that both parents were dead. The other information on the records are hard to read. I believe she married Michael Canty in New York between 1848 and 1849. He was also a native of Ireland. He was from County Cork. They had their first child, Thomas, in1850. I do not know if she had any brothers or sisters. I do know that a person named Rose Rogers lived with them for a while in New York in1854. She was a native of a town near Mullingar also. Keo?he? Town. Can't make out the name and or it no longer exists. The person that wrote it in the records seems to be the same person who made all the other entries as well and hard to read (for me). Roses parents were also dead. Not sure if they were related, would like to think so. Rose came to the United States aboard the ship Manhattan out of Liverpool. Any information or a lead to where I can acquire further information would be greatly appreciated.
