Edward Maroney, and spouse Catherine McMullen left Ireland sometime around 1830 and apparently gave birth to a son Daniel W on the boat to the USA or Canada and arrived at an unknown port. They lived in Pennsylvania initially and settled in Michigan. According to the daughter (first cousin of my grandfather) of a sister of Daniel, the family came from Co. Clare however we have other information pointing towards Co Cork. It is possible on the same ship, came John Maroney, who might have been a brother or father to Edward. It is possible based on some information documented from the late 1800's, that Edward was NOT the father of Daniel, but a John might have been. We have fairly good information that Edward and Catherine had three daughters, Ellen b unknown, Margaret b1813, Bridget b1814. We also show a John b1818, Catherine b1820, Elizabeth b1822 but are unsure if they belonged to Edward and Catherine or possibly to John. Daniel W is my GGG'grandfather born approximately 1830-1831. If anyone can assist us in locating additional information in the next 5 months that would be very helpful as we are taking a family trip to Ireland this summer and my elderly father would "like to see his homeland".

Thank You, Mike Maroney
