  • My ancestor John Hennessy had 5 brothers and they were all from Middleton. He was born in 1820, but they immigrated to Boston, Massachusetts and spread out from there. His father James (1787-1862) also immigrated. Would your Michael have initially gone to New England?

  • My Michael (1830 abt to 1870) went to New York where his first child was born 1853.  Didn't stay long and went accross the Ithmus(Pannama Canal eventually) then up to the California Gold Fields.  His wife's family (Kearny's,) and Michael's Father Michl Hennessey came also.
