Hello to Philip E. Leonard,
I have an ancestor with a John McConnell connection who was a medical doctor at
Chinguacousy Township Peel County, Province of Ontario born at Co. Fermanagh. The record
shows that Dr. McConnell graduated in medicine in Ireland and emigrated to Canada c
1840-60 where he established a practice in the village of Cheltenham. Dr. McConnell gained
a degree of notoriety in 1868 as a result of failed medical procedure which was given wide
I am searching for my OVENS ancestors origins in Co. Fermanagh who emmigrated to Canada in
c1825-30. I believe that they may have come from the area of Inishmacsaint but I have not
as yet confirmed this.
Also interested in the names Cheney and Vance, both of whom it is believed came from
Fermanagh c 1840-50.
