Dear List (I'm new to the list)
I finally located my McGINNIS and MURPHY ancestors before 1870 (I've been
looking for them for over ten years) and they turned out to be in Lee
Please contact me if you have any further information on the following
families who were in Nelson Twp. in the 1860 Census :
Murther MURPHY b 1802 IRE
Elizabeth b 1810 IRE *
James b 1838 IRE (and later married Sarah C and moved to NE)
Margaret b 1844 NY (my ancestor) *
John b 1846 NY
Thomas b 1846 NY *
Murther b 1848 NY
Terrence b 1853 NY
Berny b 1857 IL *
Margaret married Peter McGINNIS b 1833 IRE *, who was her next door neighbor
in the 1860 Census.
His family is listed :
Bridget b 1800 IRE
Catherine b 1830 IRE
* these members of the family are listed in Norton Twp. Kankakee Co. IL 1870
Since I do not live in the States, I would appreciate anyone who could
look-up further information, especially the marriage record of Peter and
Margaret, or the naturalisation records for Peter or Murther etc...
Thank you for your help.
