Hi, I'm looking for Henry's relatives. He was born from Ellen Nelligan and William Fenton. By 1861 they were in Canada census.

    I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and located the marriage record for William Fenton and Ellen Neligan in the Doneraile RC parish which is the parish north of Killavullen (Annakissy) which was the parish where Henry was baptized on July 23 1844. There were no baptismal records for siblings to henry so maybe they left Ireland soon after he was born.

    Have you taken a DNA test? If not, I would consider a test. You may have matches with others with Fenton connections.

    I noticed that part of my sentence was missing from my first response. William and Ellen were married in Doneraile on June 3 1843

    I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and did not see a good lead for William Fenton. For Ellen I looked in Doneraile and found two possible leads

    Ellen Nelligan April 23 1815 Doneraile RC parish father Patrick Nelligan mother Mary last name illegible

    Ellen Nelligan April 23 1826 Doneraile RC parish father William Nelligan mother Catherine Clancy

    RC is Roman Catholic.

  • May 25th 1823 buttevent cork, is that one possible?

  • Yes. Buttevant borders Doneraile. I was going on the assumption that if the marriage was in Doneraile, she was baptized in that parish. Howver, the family could have moved.
