  • Suse:

    I assume your ancestors were Roman Catholic. There are only five Co. Cavan RC parishes which have records back to the late 1700s. I did a search on the subscription site Roots Ireland and did not find a marriage for a Nellie Lawlor to and Andrew Brady. Also, there were no Ellen/Nellie baptismal records in Co. Cavan in the 1700s.

    Did the couple emigrate or stay in Ireland?

  • Thank you for responding Roger.  Yes they are Roman catholic..  They were both  born and died in Ireland.  They had 2 sons that I know of born in county Cavan Thomas born around 1788 and John born early 1800's.  Thomas married Mary Anne Gartner around 1810 and they had 5 children - Patrick born around 1811, Catherine,  Elizabeth,  Mary Anne and Thomas.   John came to Alfed, Prescott  county,  Ontario, Canada around1825 as confirmed through a  Canadian marriage  Record.  He married Rachel McDonnell  whose family also came from Ireland and settled in Alexandria, , Glengarry  county, Ontario,  Canada.  Thomas came later after his wife died.  He came to Alfed sometime in the  1830's. With all 5 of h8s children.  1841 Canada Census records show his place of birth as Cavan.  Thank you again for all your help.  Suse. .
