Hi there...

is shutting down as of June 1st. With Carol's permission I am going to post
the queries here.
If you wish to respond please use the email address with the query.

Fermoyle ancestors
by Mark Aidan Bergin posted 3/21/01 2:11:34 AM

We are trying to find a branch of our family tree. John Fermoyle (Born 1824)
is supposed to have left Ireland with his parents (father was also named
John Fermoyle, mother was Bridget Carroll) in 1833. They reportedly lived in
County Laois but we can find no links in County Laois, prior to emigration
to Caanda, for the Fermoyle family. Do you have any suggestions on how to
follow up on this research.

I am looking for information on my great-great grandfather, James C.
Campion, b. Dec. 2 1835 in
County Laois. He immigrated to New York State around 1857, later migrating
to Kansas. I am looking for parents, siblings, etc. Also, I am looking for
any Campions who still live in County Laois. Thank you.

Dowlings in Mountmellick
by Barbara Daly posted 4/29/01 4:55:49 PM



Am looking for info on Dowling family: Father was Joseph Dowling, mother was
Elizabeth Bacon. My grandfather was Edward Joseph Dowling, b. 1881 in
Mountmellick, Leix (now Laois). Edward had older brother Ralph (these 2
immigrated to Liverpool in their teens (1890s), then to Canada in early
1900's). They also had a younger brother Dennis, and another who immigrated
to Australia. Sister Molly remained in Mountmellick until her death (approx.
1970s). There were other siblings but I have no info on them.
Thanks for any help.

I am looking for information and the ancestry of Nicholas Hall, born 1791,
who joined the 88th Regiment, 2nd Batallion. He served in the Penninsular
War 1807-1814 and the War of 1812 in Canada, where he settled. I have
extensive data of him after his arrival in Canada, which I can share.

He came from either Roshkeen, Rushin or Ruskin. (I am reading rom an old
manuscript)

Any information will be greatly appreciated.

HONNER family
by Maryjane Stelmach Honner posted 5/22/01 1:12:04 AM



Hi Folks!

I am looking for any ancestors, decendants of, and info about the HONNER
family of Laois, Ireland. My immediate family was from Mountrath (Rosecelton
Church has many records on them I hear) with cousins in Mountmellick also.

Of course there are also branches of the family in Tipperary, Dublin,
Waterford, and Cork (the old family)... with many variations of spelling
(Honor, Honnor, Honour in England, and the original Huguenot Honore).

Would appreciate an email if anyone out there has any info or ties! I have
an HONNER website with tons o' info & family trees, and would be happy to
share.

Thanks,

Maryjane Stelmach Honner
Canton, Michigan, USA
