      In February 2008, the writer compiled a James and Brigid Brown Family History detailing some information about this family, and their descendants, that emigrated from County Limerick, Ireland to Ontario, Canada about 1850. The information came from various conversations, family records, prayer cards, church and government records and other family histories done by other descendants of James and Brigid. Robert Brown Sr.'s granddaughter Mary (Brown) Kelly's papers, Shirley and John Mecke, Robert Sr.s great-grandson's research and follow-up, and Edward Brown?'s
      great-granddaughter Sharon Walsh's family history all supplied information for the Brown history. Rita McDonnell, a great-granddaughter of Robert Brown Sr., and her
      meticulous records and scrap books supplied much information. Ben and Kevin Brown's school papers recorded and passed on stories and information from earlier generations. Kevin?s mother, Linda, did a history for a 2000
      reunion that told of the lives of Robert and Nellie Brown and their children. In total the names of almost 1100 direct descendants of James and Brigid and their eight children were listed in the February 2008 booklet. Over
      57 % of the descendants listed were in one branch of the family: the Robert and Margaret (Shannahan) Brown's branch.
      Just seven years later, with the aide of computers for record research and communication, census and government records being archived for review, computer family history programs becoming readably available, cousins traveling to Ireland for "on-sight" research, and the cooperation of old and newly found "cousins", the number of descendants has grown to almost 1500 direct descendants of James and Brigid.
      The first thing we found was that we are descendants of Edmond Brown (e) and Margaret Kelly, not James and Brigid, and there were at least nine children, not just the eight that came to Canada with their parents. What is known of the ninth child, Anna, is in this history update. In addition to the correct names for the parents, Murray Brown a great-great-grandson of Edmond and Margaret (Kelly) Brown, his wife Linda, and their daughter Laurie visited County Limerick, Ireland in the summers of 2012 and 2013 and
      found the remains of possibly the Brown residence in Ballyhahill, near Shanagolden, County Limerick.

      Murray tells us about his research and trip:
      IRELAND LAND SEARCH
      "A general knowledge of our family history comes to us orally, passed down from generation to generation. We originally believed that the names of the parents of the family that came to Canada from Ireland in 1850 were James and Bridget but some of our research has shown that their names we actually Edmond and Margaret. We also know that they came from an area in Co. Limerick around the village of Shanagolden. The path to finding the actual property unfolded bit by bit over a few years. That process started about seven or eight years before I started my search. In 2004, Mary Margaret Meyer, a cousin of Lawrence Brown, was researching some of her family history at the National Library in Dublin, Ireland. She was studying a document called the 1846 Shanagolden Relief Commission Report and happened upon the name of Edmond Browne, a farmer from Ballyhahill. The information in that report seemed to be a likely match and that was the first indication we had of them being from Ballyhahill. This small village is down the road from Shanagolden and part of the Catholic parish of Shanagolden at that time. This was a very important piece of information as it told us more precisely where we were from. In 2011 I started to get very interested in exactly where the Browns came from. I spent a bit of time searching the internet for relevant information and in 2012 we went to Ireland. It was in the parish records at Shanagolden that we found the baptismal records for most of Edmond and Margaret's children and confirmation that the parent's names were, in fact, Edmond and Margaret. With the correct name of Edmond, we now had another critical piece of
      information in the search for the property that they lived on. Through the fall and winter of 2012/2013 I spent time on the internet, as time allowed, searching for anything that might lead to more information. I bounced around from one website
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      Edward Brown and Margaret Kelly June 2015-3
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      to another until I found a document called Griffith?s Valuation. Griffith?s Valuation was one of the first property valuations done in Ireland. Fortunately for us Co. Limerick seems to have been done very shortly before the Brownes left in 1850 as the report was released in 1852. Included in the written documentation was a map reference number. After a few more searches I found the map corresponding to the page in the report that contained the Browne information. The beauty of the site that had the map is that it has a slide bar on it that allows you to transition from the old map to a current map by fading one out and the other in. Between that feature and Google Earth I was able to get a very clear view of the farm. I passed off this information to a genealogical research group called Limerick Genealogy to verify that what I thought I had found was indeed correct. They were able to access another set of records that I could not find and they reported back that it was the Browne farm. The information in Griffith's Valuation stated that the property consisted of 63 acres and was co-leased by Edmond Browne and Thomas Connors. Nearly all land in Ireland at that time was leased by peasant farmers from English landlords. While most land was leased by a single family co-leasing was not totally uncommon. There is a short street at the west edge of the village of Ballyhahill that contains 12 semi-detached homes. That street was severed off the farm property. Interestingly, when we first drove through Ballyhahill in 2012 we turned around on that street to go back into the
      village. We were actually on the farm and didn't know it.
      Further searches revealed the current owners of the farm to be John and Noelle Cregan. Cregans own the farm next to the Browne farm and they purchased the Browne farm in 1999. When we went to Ireland in 2013 we met with them and walked the fields. Of interest here is that the Tithe Applotment Books of 1833 lists several Cregans on the same page as the
      Brownes. It is most likely that John Cregan is a descendant of them and also likely that his ancestors were next door neighbours of Edmond and Margaret Browne. During the decades
      between Brownes emigrating and Cregans purchasing the property it was held by a series of Connors descendants.
      In the spring of 2008 Shirley Mecke made contact with Eugene Guinane McGillis, a great-grandson of Ellen and Patrick Guinane. Gene, who lives in the Superior, Wisconsin area, was searching on the internet for his Ontario roots, and eventually filled in for us over 240 names and other information on Ellen and Patrick Guinane descendants of this branch of the family.

      Edward Brown and Margaret Kelly June 2015-4
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      In 2008, John and Shirley Mecke, following up leads from an old newspaper obituary, contacted Sister Dolores O'Sullivan, the youngest daughter of James O'Sullivan and Teresa Gallagher and a granddaughter of Bridgid Brown and Peter O'Sullivan. Sister Dolores was a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph and living in their retirement home in London, Ontario. She was the last living of the seventeen children of James and Teresa, and was very helpful in not only providing information about her family's history, but also information about other descendants of her grandparents. Through Sister, I contacted, and have corresponded with Peter Etue, a great-grandson of Bridgid and Peter O'Sullivan. Peter is responsible for maintaining the "Canadian" part of a very well done family history website on a branch of his family.
      Between visits with Sister, her prayer cards and old newspaper obits and Peterss correspondence we now know something about 135 or so descendants of Bridgid and
      Peter O'Sullivan. While there are many weddings, children, and families listed in this history of a family descended from a couple that left Ireland 165 years ago, nearly 50% of those known to us are descended from a daughter, Mary, and two sons, James and Robert, children of Robert and Margaret (Shannahan) Brown. To all I say "Thank you" for your help in supplying data and stories for this update of our Brown Family History. I hope that you enjoy this update. It tells a little more of the known direct
      descendants of Edmond and Margaret, who we are, when we were born, and where some of us may be now. To all who receive a copy of this document, please feel free to share it with your siblings and children and make copies for all in your family as you wish. As always any additions or corrections are much appreciated. Family history is always
      ongoing. For many of the people listed in this booklet, their time here on this earth is finished, and they have gone on to their eternal reward. Please remember them in your prayers as you turn
      these pages.
      Your cousin,
      Lawrence J. Brown

      ------------------------------------------------------------
      Edward Brown(e) (aka James, Edmond or Edmund) and Margaret (aka Brigid) Kelly were most likely born and raised near Shanagolden, County Limerick Ireland and
      married about 1820 in the Catholic Parish Church there. In the next twenty years at least nine children were born into the family and for much of the time they lived and farmed some small acreage near the village of Ballyhahill in County Limerick. In the later part of the 1840's the future did not look bright for many in Ireland and Edward and Margaret and their family decided to emigrated from County Limerick, Ireland to Dundas, Ontario, Canada in the last half of the year 1850. Their son James had emigrated to Canada a couple of years earlier, and secured work with the Desjardins Canal in Dundas. After being there a short time, he encouraged his parents to bring themselves and the rest of his brothers and sisters to Canada and join him. Unfortunately, when the family arrived in Dundas, they learned that Jimmy had died of most likely malaria. He was one of the many immigrants who died while working on the canal. He was buried between four large trees on the north bank of the canal. This was a common sight of burial, and those buried there never had their names recorded. The family stayed in Dundas for about two or three years after their arrival. During this time Edward Sr., who was very heart-broken over the loss of his son, also died as there is no record of him going on to Perth County with the rest of the family. When he died or where he may have been buried is unknown. The two oldest daughters in the family married Guinane brothers in Ireland and their mother most likely stayed with them around Dundas when the three Brown men started working their way west to Stratford with the railroad. Margaret then followed with the families when the Guinanes moved to the Perth County area. There are
      records of children of both Mary and Richard, and Ellen and Patrick Guinane being baptized at St. Joseph's Church, Stratford starting in the mid 1850's. Eventually the seven remaining children of Edward and Margaret resettled to the area around Stratford in Perth County. Much of the above is an excerpt from " Brown Family History, The First 145 Years, 1854-1999", a 10th grade school project paper prepared by Kevin Brown in 1999. The basis of Kevin's project was a similar project presented by Ben Brown in
      1973.

      ------------------------------------------------------------
      Margaret apparently died in late August 1866 as there is a notation in the Kinkora Church records of a Mrs. Brown Sr. being buried in the cemetery on August 27, 1866. Robert P. Brown and other descendants in the family have told us, that the Brown parents' names were James Brown and Brigid Kelly. This seemed logical as the oldest child was named James, and a daughter was named Bridget. However, in church
      records, particularly the marriage records of the children, the names of James and Brigid are recorded as Edward and Margaret. We do not know if these were their second names that were used interchangeably with their first names. In July 2012 and in July 2013 Murray Brown, a great-great-grandson of Edward Brown, his wife Linda, and their daughter Laurie traveled to Ireland and each year spent a couple of days of their holiday sightseeing trip in Shanagolden. When there they found baptismal records of a number of the children of Edmond and Margaret
      recorded in the Shanagolden Parish Records, Volume I, 1824-1900, verifying the first names of the parents to be Edmd. or Edwd. Brown and Mgt. Kelly. So it appears that the parents names used in the first generation wedding records were correct. They also located the plot of land that was the home acreage of Edward and Margaret and their children for a number of years before their emigration from Ireland to Canada. In the fall of 2004 we received from Mary Margaret Meyer, a Maloney cousin of Lawrence Brown, a copy of a document and two pages from a history book of West
      Limerick during the 1845-1849 period. Mary Margaret was researching various documents on microfilm looking for information on a branch of her family that also had emigrated from County Limerick to Canada around 1850. The document was a copy of a number of entries from the 1846 Shanagolden Relief Commission Report. The entries show the status of a number of people living in Townland of Ballyhahill in the Civil Parish of Kilmoylan on property owned by Lord Monteagle. The information listed was certified by Thomas Spring-Rice, also known as Lord Monteagle. Ballyhahill is a small village on a road about four miles (six and a half kilometers) west of Shanagolden. The four civil parishes of Kilmoylan, Morgans, Robertstown, and Shanagolden formed the Catholic Parish of Shanagolden.
      One of the families listed is an Edmond Brown, who has twenty acres, and listed
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      Edward Brown and Margaret Kelly June 2015-7
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      One of the families listed is an Edmond Brown, who has twenty acres, and listed his occupation as "Farmer". There are nine people listed in the family, with four able-bodied males and two able bodied females being indicated on the report. Edmond is listed as being self-employed, with a quantity of 4 weeks provisions on hand when the official visited the home. The word "comfortable" is listed in the Remarks column. Twenty acres seemed to be a common size plot of land listed on the statement for those that had acreage listed, but the four weeks provisions were certainly on the high end of the scale. Many of the listings showed "little or none" "one meal" or "one week" as the quantity of provisions available. West Limerick Families Abroad, a book about the Irish who left West Limerick by Kate Press and Valerie Thompson tells the following: "The Tithe Allotment Book for Kilmoylan parish in April 1833 lists Edmond Browne as a solid farmer holding with Patrick Connors sixty-one acres, two roods, and seven perches of land at Ballyhahill. By March of 1850, unable after the famine to pay the arrears of seventy-five pounds, twelve shillings, four pence, he surrendered his one-half share of the farm on condition he could sell his stock and use the proceeds to emigrate to America. Monteagle abated part of the rent and Thomas Connors took over the land."
      Edmond Brown or Margaret Kelly and Thomas Connors may well have been blood relatives. Besides sharing the rental of land we notice that the Connors name comes up as baptismal sponsors for some of the Brown children and in looking at other baptismal records from the area we noted a number of Kelly-Connors baptismal sponsorships between the families.
      The history book "A Pauper Warren, West Limerick, 1845-49", by Gerard Curtin, shows among those emigrating from the Shanagolden area during the years 1847-1850 is an Edmond
      Brown, a farmer from Ballyhahill. A page later in the book there is a paragraph telling about the large numbers of people leaving Ireland for Australia and North America. It states that many of the people leaving were in receipt of assistance from emigrants already arrived in the New World. The next sentence states in July 1850, Edward Brown, a farmer from Ballyhahill received 10 pounds from Lord Monteagle to assist them to emigrate. There is also a notation in the margin of the Relief Commission Ledger next to Edmond Brown's name "emigrated received 10 pounds Jul/50". From all of this it appears that Edmond and Edward is the same person, and that Edward and Margaret Brown left County Limerick, Ireland for Dundas, Ontario in July 1850 or some time
      ----------------------------------------------------------
      Edward Brown and Margaret Kelly June 2015-8
      -----------------------------------------------------------
      shortly thereafter. Different reports or accounts of the property in Ballyhahill rented by Edmond Brown vary; some list 20 acres, others show the low thirties or half of the low sixties as acreage. One Irish acre is approximately 1.62 British acres, so it depends on which government agency, Irish or British, calculated the measurement for the report. At the time of the Robert and Nellie Brown Family Reunion at Lost Arrow Resort, Gladwin, Michigan on July 12, 2003, it was calculated that the direct descendants of Edward and Margaret Brown(e) numbered a total of 776 people, with almost 70% of them being descendants of James and Mary (Kinkora store) and Rob and Nellie(5th Concession-home farm) In the next ten plus years, through the persistent research and the kind patient help of many of the descendants of Edward and Margaret, that number has grown to almost 1500 known direct descendants of the Brown Family that left County Limerick, Ireland for Ontario, Canada in the middle of the nineteenth century. While almost all of the additional names added to the history in the last decade or so come from various branches of the family other than Robert, forty-seven percent of the direct descendants listed at this time still are descendants of the three children of Robert and Margaret
      (Shannahan) Brown.

      Edward Brown and Margaret Kelly June 2015-9
      -----------------------------------------------------------Generation 1
      1. EDWARD1 BROWN(E) was born date Unknown in County Limerick, Ireland1. He died between 1850-1854 in Dundas, Ontario, Canada2. He married Margaret Kelly about Abt.
      1820 in Ireland3. She was born about Abt. 1797 in Ireland1, 4. She died about Abt. August 26, 1866 in Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada5. Edward Brown(e) lived in Ballyhahill, County Limerick, Ireland in 1846(6). He was also known as James Brown3. He was also known as Edmond Browne7. Notes for Edward Brown(e): Edward Brown(e) (aka James, Edmond or Edmund) and Margaret (aka Brigid) Kelly emigrated from Shanagolden, County Limerick, Ireland to Dundas, Ontario, Canada in the last half of the year 1850. Their son James had emigrated to Canada in the late 1840's, and secured work with the Desjardins Canal in Dundas. After being there a short time, he encouraged his parents to bring themselves and the rest of his brothers and sisters to Canada and join him. Unfortunately, when the family arrived in Dundas, they learned that Jimmy had died of most likely of malaria. He was one of the many immigrants who died while working on the canal. He was buried between four large trees on the north bank of the canal. This was a common sight of burial, and those buried there never had their names recorded. The family stayed in Dundas for about two or three years after their arrival. During this time Edward Sr., who was very heart-broken over the loss of his son, also died as there is no record of him going on to Perth County with the rest of the family. When he died or where he may have been buried is unknown. The two oldest daughters in the family married Guinane brothers in Ireland and their mother most likely stayed with them around Dundas when the three Brown men started working their way west to Stratford with the railroad. Margaret then followed with the families when the Guinanes moved to the Perth County area. There are records of children of both Mary and Richard, and Ellen and Patrick Guinane being baptized at St.
      Joseph's Church, Stratford starting in the mid 1850's.
      Eventually the seven remaining children of Edward and Margaret resettled to the area around Stratford in Perth County. Much of the above is an excerpt from " Brown Family History, The First 145 Years, 1854-1999", a 10th grade school project paper prepared by Kevin Brown in 1999. The basis of Kevin's project was a similar project presented by Ben Brown in 1973. Margaret apparently died in late August 1866 as there is a notation in the Kinkora Church records of a Mrs. Brown Senior being buried in the cemetery on August 27, 1866. Robert P. Brown and other descendants in the family have told us, that the Brown parents' names were James Brown and Brigid Kelly. This seemed logical as the oldest child was named James, and a daughter was named Bridget. However, in church records, particularly the marriage records of the children, the names of James and Brigid are recorded as Edward and Margaret. We do not know if these were their second names that were used interchangeably with their first names.

      In July 2012 and in July 2013 Murray Brown, a great-great-grandson of Edward Brown, his wife Linda, and their daughter Laurie traveled to Ireland and each year spent
      a couple of days of their trip in Shanagolden. When there they found baptismal records of a number of the children of Edmond and Margaret recorded in the Shanagolden Parish Records, Volume I, 1824-1900, verifying the first names of the parents to be Edmd. or
      Edwd. Brown and Mgt. Kelly. So it appears that the parents names used in the first
      generation wedding records were correct. They also located the plot of land that was the
      home acrage of Edward and Margaret and their children for a number of years before
      their emigration from Ireland to Canada.
      In the fall of 2004 we received from Mary Margaret Meyer, a Maloney cousin of
      Lawrence Brown, a copy of a document and two pages from a history book of West
      Limerick during the 1845-1849 period.
      Mary Margaret was researching various documents on microfilm looking for
      information on a branch of her family that also had emigrated from County Limerick to

      Lord Monteagle.
      Ballyhahill is a small village on a road about four miles (six and a half kilometers)
      west of Shanagolden. The four civil parishes of Kilmoylan, Morgans, Robertstown, and
      Shanagolden formed the Catholic Parish of Shanagolden.

      Edmond Brown or Margaret Kelly and Thomas Connors may well have been

      blood relatives. Besides sharing the rental of land we notice that the Connors name
      comes up as baptismal sponsors for some of the Brown children and in looking at other
      baptismal records from the area we noted a number of Kelly-Connors baptismal
      sponsorships between the families.
      The history book "A Pauper Warren, West Limerick, 1845-49", by Gerard Curtin,
      shows among those emigrating from the Shanagolden area during the years 1847-1850
      is an Edmond Brown, a farmer from Ballyhahill.
      A page later in the book there is a paragraph telling about the large numbers of
      people leaving Ireland for Australia and North America. It states that many of the people

      There is also a notation in the margin of the Relief Commission Ledger next to
      Edmond Brown's name "emigrated received 10 pounds Jul/50".
      From all of this it appears that Edmond and Edward is the same person, and that
      Edward and Margaret Brown left County Limerick, Ireland for Dundas, Ontario in July
      1850 or some time shortly thereafter.

      Edward and Margaret Brown(e) numbered a total of 776 people, with almost 70% of them
      being descendants of James and Mary (Kinkora store) and Rob and Nellie(5th
      Concession-home farm)
      In the next twelve years, through the persistent research and the kind patient help
      of many of the descendants of Edward and Margaret, that number has grown to almost
      1500 known direct descendants of the Brown Family that left County Limerick, Ireland for
      Ontario, Canada in the middle of the nineteenth century.

      The date of Margaret Kelly Brown's burial was found in the middle of the Kinkora church baptismal records.
      "Mrs. Brown Sr., was interred on August 27, 1866, aged 69 yrs. By J.Scanlan, parish Priest, with Patrick Collins and Mortimer Hishon as witnesses"
      The next entry in the log is James Joseph Brown, son of Robert Brown and
      Margaret Shannahan, being born on August 29, 1866.
      April
      In July 2012 Murray Brown, a great-great-grandson of Edward Brown, and his
      wife Linda traveled to Ireland and spent a couple of days of their trip in Shanagolden,
      County Limerick. When there they found baptismal records of a number of the children of
      Edmond and Margaret Brown recorded in the Shanagolden Parish Records, Volume I,
      1824-1900, verifying the first names of the parents to be Edmd. or Edwd. Brown and Mgt.
      Kelly. So it appears that the parents names used in the first generation wedding records
      in Canada were correct.

      Edward Brown(e) and Margaret Kelly had the following children:
      i. JAMES2 BROWN was born about Abt. 1821 in Ballyhahill, County Limerick,
      Ireland3. He died about Abt. 1850 in Around Dundas, Ontario, Canada3.
      James Brown was buried in Common grave on the north bank of the
      Desjardins canal8.
      Notes for James Brown:
      Picture this, it is 1848 you are living in Ireland on a ten acre farm in
      a small, beat up shack with your mother, father, three brothers, and four
      sisters. The potato crop is ruined from blight and the little money you make
      from fishing is not enough to support your family. Everyone in the area is
      susceptible to disease and you have heard about a place called Canada
      that claims to have miles of unmarked land, better living conditions, and
      plenty of money to be made. You know you can not survive in your present
      conditions but you don't know what to do. There is also a long boat ride
      that ends with many people being quarantined for health reasons. If you
      make it past this you are left without work and shelter and have only the
      few goods you brought with you. You decide that Canada can be no worse
      than your present conditions so you decide to make the trip across the
      Atlantic and try your luck in this land of opportunity. This is what Jimmy
      faced and though each family's story is different this one of Jimmy's is
      similar to what the majority of Irish immigrants had to deal with.
      Being the oldest son of Edward Brown and Margaret Kelly, Jimmy
      was able to survive the trip and landed at present day Dundas, Ontario.
      After securing work with the Desjardins Canal in Dundas, Jimmy found
      shelter and sent letters back to Ireland. In these letters he urged the rest of
      the family to come and in 1851 they arrived in Dundas. Upon arrival they
      were shocked to hear that Jimmy had died of what was then called " ships
      fever" but what may have been malaria. He was one of many immigrants
      who died while working on the canal. He was buried between four large
      trees to the north of the canel bank. This was a common sight of burial and
      those buried there never had their names recorded.

      Richard Guinane and Mary Guinane, on February 14, 1846 in Ballyhahill or
      Shanagolden, County Limerick, Ireland11, 14. He was born between
      1813-1815 in Kilcolman, County Limerick, Ireland11, 14-15. He died in 1860 in
      Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada14-15.

      She lived in Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada between
      1871-18819, 16. She lived in City Hotel, Superior, Wisconsin in 189317. She
      lived in 2125 Hammond Ave, Superior, Wisconsin between 1894-189817.
      She lived in 1108 Oakes Ave, Superior, Wisconsin in 189917. She was
      buried on January 13, 1900 in Catholic Cemetery, Superior, Douglas

      Index Volume: -. She was also known as Ellenann, as listed on Irish
      marriage record11.
      Notes for Ellen Brown:
      Ellen was the second child of Margaret and Edward, and was
      married to Patrick Guinane in County Limerick, Ireland, prior to immigrating
      to Dundas, Ontario with the rest of the Brown family.
      Before emigrating from Ireland Ellen and Patrick's first child, a
      daughter Johanna, was born. While living in Dundas, they had their second
      child.
      In 1854 Ellen and Patrick followed the Brown brothers to Ellice
      Township, and leased, and then quickly bought Lot 25, Concession 6 in the
      Township. While living on the farm in Ellice, they had three additional
      children.
      In 1874, Ellen's son Michael became co-owner of the north half of
      the farm with his mother, and the south half was sold to a Thomas Guinane.
      Ellen and Michael sold their portion of the land to Ellen's nephew, Ed
      Brown, in 1892. Ed and his sister Agnes eventually bought the neighboring
      farm and lived on it for many years.
      Sometime between 1881 and 1893, Ellen moved to Superior,
      Wisconsin, to where her son Michael had moved. A death notice was found
      in the Wisconsin Vital Records Death Index, indicating that a Mrs. Ella
      Guinane died on January 7, 1900 in Douglas County, Wisconsin.
      In June 2008 Shirley Mecke made contact with Eugene Guinane
      McGillis, a great-grandson of Ellen and Patrick Guinane. Gene lives in the
      Superior, Wisconsin area, and updated the family history for this branch of
      the family. Gene also found an obituary in a newspaper file that said:
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      Descendants of Edward Brown(e)
      Edward Brown and Margaret Kelly June 2015-14
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      "Mrs. Ellen Guinane, aged 75 years, died Sunday afternoon at the
      home of her daughter, Mrs. J. Connell at 1110 Oakes Ave. The funeral will
      be from the house at 8:30 tomorrow morning proceeding to Sacred Heart
      Church where services will be held at 9 o'clock. Interment will be at the
      Nemadji Catholic cemetery. The deceased leaves besides her daughter,
      one son living here, W. B. Connell."
      The dates support the death index information, and the age of 75
      years varies slightly from other birth date information we have calculated for
      Ellen; while there is a daughter J (Johanna) in the family, Johanna was
      married to James Carlin and lived and died in McKillop Township, Huron
      County, Ontario. Could the daughter mentioned be Mary who also moved to
      Wisconsin, married a J. Connell, and lived next door to her mother on
      Oakes Street in 1900?
      The original wedding records of Ellen and Patrick were found in a
      search in the National Archives office in Dublin, Ireland by Linda and
      Murray Brown during their trip to Ireland in July 2012. The wedding also is
      listed in the Shanagolden Parish Records Volume I 1824-1900.
      The Shanagolden baptismal records list the seven youngest children
      of Edward and Margaret and start with Maria/Mary in January 1825. While
      the 1823 date may vary slightly from verbal calculated birth dates in other
      information that appears about Ellen, the 1823 dates ties in with the birth
      dates of other members of the family.
      In the fall of 2012, Shirley and John Mecke visited the Wisconsin
      Vital Records office in Madison, Wisconsin, and found a death certificate for
      an Ella Guinane. The certificate states that Ella was a white female, 75
      years of age and born in Ireland. She is shown as the widow of Patrick
      Guinane. Date of death shown as January 7, 1900 and her residence at
      that time was West Superior, Wisconsin. Cause of death is shown as
      Senile Debility and place of death is shown as 1110 Oakes Ave. It shows
      her place of burial as Catholic Cemetery and the undertaker as A. P.
      LeSage. Date of certificate January 13, 1900 and number of burial permit
      as 1558. Date of burial permit as January 13, 1900 and it shows Recorded
      Feb 10, 1900.
      Shirley contacted the funeral home and they said they had the
      following notation in their ledger:
      Mrs. Ellen Guinane
      75 years old
      Died January 7, 1900
      Dr. Adams was listed as the Dr.
      W.B. Gunane paid the bill
      She was buried in Catholic Cemetery
      (it was very vague)
      The ledger was hand written and the W. B. Guinane is most likely
      M. B., her son Michael.

      Patrick Guinane15 lived in Lot 25, Concession 6, Ellice Township, Perth
      County, Ontario, Canada in 1860. He was buried in 1860 in St. Patrick's

      Consumption14.
      Notes for Patrick Guinane:
      There is a notation in the 1861 Canadian census that Patrick died in
      1860 of consumption at the age of 47.

      iii. MARY BROWN was born about Abt. January 15, 1825 in Ballyhahill, County
      Limerick, Ireland13, 19. She died between 1857-1861 in Ellice Township,
      Perth County, Ontario, Canada14. She married Richard Guinane, son of
      Richard Guinane and Mary Guinane, in Ireland3. He was born on May 01,
      1822 in Ireland5, 20. He died on June 25, 1904 in Ellice Township, Perth
      County, Ontario, Canada5.
      Baptismal Sponsors: January 25, 182519 (Maria Kelly and James Connors)
      She was baptized on January 25, 182519 in Shanagolden Parish, most
      likley at the church of St. Senan's, Shanagolden, County Limerick, Ireland.
      She was also known as Maria19.
      Notes for Mary Brown:
      Mary was the second daughter of Brigid and James. She married
      Richard Guinane in Ireland and either came to Canada with her parents or
      shortly afterward.
      Mary and Richard had their first child, a son Michael, in Ireland
      before emigrating from Ireland. Two daughters were born to them after their
      arrival in Canada,
      Mary and Richard apparently followed the rest of the Brown Family
      in their migration from Dundas to the Stratford area, as one of their children
      was baptized at St. Joseph's Church, Stratford in 1855 when she was less
      than three weeks old.
      In June 2009 Shirley Mecke in a search on Ancestry.ca found what
      appeared, in spite of spelling variations, a second marriage of Richard
      Guinane. A further search of St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Stratford
      records lists Richard Guinane marrying Johannah McDonnell on March 3,
      1862. Consequently the 1861 Canadian census records showing Richard
      being a widower are correct, and Mary died sometime between 1855 and
      1861.
      The Shanagolden baptismal records list the seven youngest children
      of Edward and Margaret. While there is no "Mary" there is a "Maria", which
      is the Latin name for "Mary", and is often used as the given name. The birth
      date varies slightly from other verbal calculated dates given for Mary.The
      baptismal date is the only recorded date we have for Mary.

      Richard Guinane lived in Lot 25, Concession 6, Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada, living with his brother and his family in 186114. He
      lived in Lot 29, Concession 13, Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario,
      Canada in 187116, 21. He was employed as a Farmer in 18819. He was
      counted in the census in 1881 in Census Place: Ellice, Perth County North,
      Ontario9. He was buried in June 1904 in St. Patrick's Cemetery, Kinkora,
      Ontario, Canada5.
      Notes for Richard Guinane:
      Richard is listed as a widower in the 1861 Canadian census. He is
      listed right after his brother Patrick's family and his brother Thomas in the
      census. The next family listed in the census is the James McCauley family;
      the "Echoes of Ellice" history book of Ellice Township lists James McCauley
      living at Lot 26, Concession 6, the next farm to Patrick Guinane in 1861
      There is a Joanna Guinane, age 6, listed in with Patrick and Ellen
      Guinane's family on the 1861 census. This is most likely Richard and
      Mary's daughter, and it appears that the Richard, Thomas, and Patrick and
      his family all lived together in one residence at the time of the 1861 census.
      A combination of the 1871 Canadian Census and the 'Echoes of
      Ellice" book shows that Richard and his second wife Johanna (McDonnell)
      lived either with Johanna's brother Patrick and his family, or in a separate
      house on Lot 29, Concession 13, in Ellice Township. Johannah's mother, a
      widow, was living with Richard and Johanna.
      iv. ROBERT BROWN was born about Abt. October 09, 1826 in Ballyhahill,
      County Limerick, Ireland19, 22. He died on August 17, 1913 in Ellice
      Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada22. He married Margaret
      Shannahan, daughter of Edward Shannahan and Catherine McGrath, on
      July 24, 1859 in St. Columban Church, St. Columban, Ontario, Canada23.
      She was born in 1837 in County Limerick, Ireland22. She died on August
      28, 1877 in Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada13.
      Baptismal Sponsors: October 19, 1826 (Ellen Walsh and Thos.
      Redmonds19) He was baptized on October 19, 182619 in Shanagolden
      Parish, most likley at the church of St. Senan's, Shanagolden, County
      Limerick, Ireland. He was counted in the census in 1881 in Widowed, with
      an occupation listed as Farmer9. He was elected Ellice Township Council
      Treasurer between 1896-189924. Death Record: August 18, 1913 in Ellice
      Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada; #02628013 He was buried on
      August 19, 1913 in St. Patrick's Cemetery, Kinkora, Ontario, Canada22.
      Registrar: October 14, 1913 (Justus Kreuter13) His cause of death was
      Slight dynsentery for 2 days; Dr. A. D. Smith13. Death Informant: (Robert P.

      the Dundas area, possibly with the same canal company that had employed
      their older brother, James.
      When the Desjardins Canal went bankrupt, Robert and his brother
      Thomas became employed with the Buffalo, Brantford and Goderich
      Railway. The men laboured to extend the track to Goderich, Ontario. In
      1854 the railway had made it to Stratford but ran out of money. At the end
      of 1854 the company owed $50,000 to the construction contractors who in
      turn owed $24,000 to the workers. When the company went bankrupt in
      Stratford the brothers were out of work. Robert was able to pay the full
      sum of seventy one pounds, four shillings, and four pence for 102 acres in
      Ellice Township. Robert was one of few settlers who was able to pay off
      the full deed at the time he acquired the land. Most settlers had to make
      payments on their land.
      Once Robert was sure he had the correct lot, the brothers, with help
      from the neighbors, began construction of the house. After they had chose
      a dry spot near trees of suitable proportion the house was built. They also
      had to make sure that it was near where the road was going to be. The
      first step was to cut down the trees and make them the proper length. After
      there were enough logs to form walls the "raising bee" occurred and with
      the help of hand spikes, skids, and long poles with a crotch on one end of
      them the walls were erected. The poles were used to lift the logs into place
      once the walls were too high. Four men with sharp axes cut the corner
      joints. The corners were "square joints." Even though the walls were up
      Robert, Thomas, and Edward still had a lot to accomplish before winter.
      The roofing, flooring, chinking, chimney building, and the windows and
      doorways still had to be finished. Trees of all kinds were located nearby
      and the roof was made of Basswood that were felled, cut into logs, and split
      in the middle. Notches were made on the heart side. Each notch was
      sixteen to twenty four inches apart. By "wishing", a somewhat twisted blow
      of the axe, blocks rather then chips fell out of the heart. This formed a
      hollow pout and the final product was called a trough. When enough of
      these had been made they were laid across the building with the hollow
      side up.
      They rested on the outer side of the wall and raised to a peak.
      Another row with the bark side up were laid over the joints of the first row.
      Parts of the north and south walls had to be cut out for doors and windows.
      These jobs were done with a cross cut saw. Wedges were driven in
      between the logs so they would not sag. The wedges had to prevent
      sagging until the jambs were in place. The jambs, made from split sticks,
      roughly hewn with an axe and finished with a jack plane. Once the jamb
      was in place holes were made. Pins were driven into each jamb to keep it
      in place and the house square. The doors were made of three or four
      boards. The floor was made of Basswood slabs or planks that were nailed
      to sleepers. Two short planks formed a trap door to the root cellar in the
      ground. The cellar was used to keep the potatoes from freezing. Once all
      the flooring was in place the sons made sure that there were no holes in
      the walls that would allow hot air out and cool air in. This process was
      called chinking and was done during the day so that the holes were easily

      noticed. The holes were filled with moss. Wood and puddled clay was
      used for the chimney. The flue was large enough to allow large amounts of
      smoke to exit without trouble. The flue was made from split laths laid like
      the logs used for the main walls. The difference in the chimney was that
      there were no corner joints used. It was also covered with clay to make it
      fire proof. When completed the house was thirty feet long and twenty feet
      wide. The first floor ceiling was seven and a half feet high and the peak of
      the house was eighteen feet off the ground. There were four rooms
      downstairs and another four upstairs. There was a living room, dining room,
      kitchen and parlour downstairs and four bedrooms upstairs. The house
      must have been built very soundly because it is still in use at the beginning
      of the twenty-first century.. The house was jacked up and a basement was
      dug, a stone wall built and an addition was added in later years and but the
      part built by Robert, Thomas, and their younger brother Edward still forms
      the main part of the house.
      The house is still used in the year 2013 by Kevin Brown, a
      great-great-grandson of Robert Brown. There was an addition added on the
      north end of the house in the late 1800's. In 1942 the hydro was installed to
      the house
      On December 11, 1855 Robert sold the west half of the farm to his
      brother Thomas for four pounds.
      Margaret Shannahan was also raised in County Limerick, Ireland
      and arrived in Canada shortly after the Browns. Her family settled in
      Irishtown, which is now St. Columban. Robert and Margaret were married
      on July 24,1859.
      Robert and Margaret had eight children, three of whom died at a
      young age. Margaret died in 1877 at the age of forty, less than a month
      after the birth of their youngest daughter, and Robert died in 1913 at the
      age of eighty-six.
      Their son Robert Jr. took over Robert Sr.'s 52 acres after his
      marriage to Mary Ellen Carty. Rob and Nellie, as they were called, had ten
      children. Only one of these died at a young age. Robert Jr. died at age 84
      in 1952. Nellie died in 1946 at the age of 68. Cyril, their youngest son,
      took over the 52 acres and in 1947 bought the front fifty acres of Lot 31. In
      1958 Cyril bought the west 52 acres from Thomas Jr.

      17. The deceased, who had reached the advanced age of eighty-six years,
      was about in his usual health one week previous and his sudden demise is
      deeply regretted by all who knew him.
      He was born in the county of Limerick, Ireland in 1827 and came to
      Canada in 1850, settling in the vicinity of Hamilton. In 1854 he moved to
      Ellice and located near Kinkora, where he resided until his death. The
      funeral which was held on Tuesday August 19, to St. Patrick's church,
      Kinkora, and thence to St. Patrick's cemetery, was the largest seen there
      for many years and was a striking token of the high esteem in which the
      deceased was held. He is survived by two daughters and three sons, Mrs
      T. Coughlin, Miss Kate, James J. and Robert P. of Kinkora, and Thomas E.

      was buried in September 1877 in St. Patrick's Cemetery, Kinkora, Ontario,
      Canada22. Death Record: December 17, 1877 in Ellice Township, Perth

      v. ANNA BROWN was born about Abt. September 02, 1828 in Ballyhahill,
      County Limerick, Ireland19.
      Baptismal Sponsors: September 12, 1828 (Ellen Hammond and Robert
      Kelly19) She was baptized on September 12, 182819 in Shanagolden Parish,
      most likley at the church of St. Senan's, Shanagolden, County Limerick,
      Ireland.
      Notes for Anna Brown:
      We have no other information about Anna.
      She may have married in Ireland and did not emigrate with her
      parents and siblings, although we have no record of a marriage. She may
      have died during the family voyage to Canada, but none of her siblings
      mentioned this possibility in handing down family history. More likely Anna
      died as a baby or young girl; record keeping of Catholic deaths in this era in
      Ireland is almost non-existent.
      vi. THOMAS BROWN was born about Abt. April 07, 1831 in Ballyhahill, County
      Limerick, Ireland15, 19-20, 26. He died on June 06, 1914 in Lot 32, Concession

      Canada23. She was born on October 05, 1843 in Guysborough, Nova
      Scotia, Canada20, 27-28. She died on June 30, 1931 in Perth County, Ontario,
      Canada15.

      1869-189524. He was counted in the census in 1881 in Farmer9. He was
      buried in June 1914 in St. Patrick's Cemetery, Kinkora, Ontario, Canada15.
      Death Record: June 06, 1914 in Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario,
      Canada; #02495113 His cause of death was Bronchitis for one week
      anddilitation of heart for two months; Dr. J. J. Paul13. Death Informant:
      (Edward Brown13)
      Notes for Thomas Brown:
      On December 11, 1855 Robert Brown sold the west half of the farm
      on Concession 5, Lot 32 to his brother Thomas for four pounds. There
      were now two fifty-one acre farms on this lot. Thomas built a house three
      hundred feet directly west of Robert's. The house was similar to Robert's
      but larger.
      Thomas married Catherine Deveraux, who was from Irishtown.
      Catherine had three brothers that married Margaret Shannahan's three
      sisters. Thomas, apart from a few years, was the Ellice Township auditor
      from 1869 through 1894. He was also a councillor from 1872 through 1875.
      Thomas and Catherine had ten children. Three of the children died
      as infants, one died as a teenager, and the other six grew to adulthood.
      None of the children ever married, so there are no descendants of this
      family in later generations. Thomas Sr. died in 1914 and Catharine passed
      away in 1931. Thomas Jr. died in 1966.
      On August 15, 1891, Mary Ellen entered the Sister's of St. Joseph
      Convent in London, Ontario, taking the name of Sister Mary St. Lawrence.
      Around 1900 an addition was added on the north end of the house.
      In 1921 the original log cabin was jacked up, put on logs, and rolled one
      hundred feet north west. A slightly larger brick addition was built in its
      place.
      In 1907, Edward Brown and his sister Agnes bought Lot 26,
      Concession 6 and farmed there until Ed died in 1950.
      Thomas Sr. died in 1914 and Catharine passed away in 1931.
      Tom, Jr., and his sister Kate continued to farm the home farm. Upon
      Ed's death, Agnes returned to live with her brother and sister.
      The house is occupied today by Cyril and Gen Brown's oldest son
      Ben and his wife Heidi.
      In 2001 the house was modernized and added to again.
      The above is is an excerpt from " Brown Family History-The
      First 145 Years, 1854-1999" a 10th grade school project paper prepared
      by Kevin Brown in 1999. The basis of Kevin's project was a similar project
      "The History of the Brown Family to 1973" written by Ben Brown in 1973.
      Additional information is taken from "The Echoes of Ellice" a history
      of the township published in September 1999.

      vii. BRIDGID BROWN was born about Abt. June 26, 1834 in Ballyhahill, County
      Limerick, Ireland13, 19-20. She died on April 27, 1918 in Lot 12, Concession 1,
      McKillop Township, Huron County, Ontario, Canada29. She married Peter
      O'Sullivan, son of Patrick O'Sullivan and Johanna McGrath, on February
      15, 1858 in St. Joseph's Church, Stratford, Ontario, Canada30. He was born
      between 1825-1832 in Ireland13, 20, 23. He died on March 10, 1907 in Lot 12,
      Concession 1, McKillop Township, Huron County, Ontario, Canada13, 23.
      Bridgid Brown was baptized on July 06, 1834 in Shanagolden Parish, most
      likely at the church of Our Lady of the Visitation, Ballyhahill, County Limrick,
      Ireland19. Baptismal Sponsors: July 06, 1834 (Anna Connors and Patrick
      Walsh19) She lived in Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada in
      185830. She lived in Lot 12, Concession 1, McKillop Township, Huron
      County, Ontario, Canada in 1911 (living with her son and his family.). Death
      Informant: April 27, 1918 (James O'Sullivan13) Death Record: April 29, 1918
      in McKillop Township, Huron County, Ontario, Canada; #02075913 She was
      buried on April 30, 1918 in St. Columban Cemetery, St. Columban, Ontario,
      Canada10, 29. Her cause of death was Pneumonia for 3 days; atheroma, old
      age for several years; Dr. C. McKay13. She was also known as Bridget31.
      Notes for Bridgid Brown:
      Bridgid apparently came to Canada with her parents, followed her
      mother and brothers to the Perth County area, and there met and married
      Peter O'Sullivan. Peter was the son of Patrick and Johanna (McGrath)
      O'Sullivan from Irishtown, as the St. Columban area was known in the early
      and mid 1850's.
      After Bridgid and Peter's marriage, they lived on the First
      Concession of McKillop Township, Huron County, just west of the main
      area of St. Columban. All of their children were baptized in the St.
      Columban Church, and Bridgid and Peter are buried in the church
      cemetery.
      Little more was originally known of the descendants of this family.
      During the winter of 2003 contact was made with the descendants
      of one of Peter's younger sisters, a Bridget O'Sullivan who had married
      William John Nash. Bridget and William John had married in St. Columban
      in 1863, and had eleven children born in McKillop Township.
      William and Bridget Nash and their entire family left Ontario,
      Canada around 1900 , moving to Montana, and claimed a homestead in the
      Gallatin Valley section of the state. Many of the descendants of this family
      today live in the Bozeman, Montana and Los Angeles, California areas.
      The following Bridget O'Sullivan obituary, was received from
      Barbara Valino in July 2007. Barbara is a great-granddaughter of Edward
      Brown, and the obituary most likely appeared in a local paper at the time of Bridget's death.

      Mrs. Bridget Brown
      One of the very few remaining pioneers of the Huron Tract passed
      away at her home in McKillop on Saturday, April 27, in the person of
      Bridget Brown, widow of the late Peter O'Sullivan, at the good age of 88
      years.
      Mrs. O'Sullivan was born in Limerick, Ireland, in 1835, but came to
      Canada with her father, brothers and sisters in the year 1850, the family
      first settled in Caledonia. The following year they moved to Stratford and in
      1854 settled in Kinkora, where on February 14th, 1858, she was married to
      the late Peter O'Sullivan.
      Immediately after the marriage the young couple went to McKillop
      and settled on Lot 12, on the Huron Road, three and a half miles from
      Seaforth, where she continued to reside until her death.
      She was a most estimable women, kind and loving in the home and
      a true and helping neighbor. In religion she was a faithful and devout
      member of St. Columban Catholic church, where the funeral services were
      held on Tuesday, high mass being celebrated by the pastor, Rev. Father
      Burke and the remains were interred in the family plot in St. Columban
      cemetery; the funeral being one of the largest ever held in the section, there
      being 115 carriages in the procession, which amply testified to the esteem
      in which she was held during her long residence in the township.
      Mr. O'Sullivan died on March 10, 1917, but from a family of nine
      children, three sons and five daughters survive: Miss Mary at home, Mrs.
      James O'Connell, Stratford; Mrs. Frank Farrel, Fargo, N.D.; Mrs. V. Wild,
      Bayfield; Mrs. J. A. Downey, of Vancouver, Washington; Peter, the well
      known cattle buyer; James, on the homestead, and John, Buffalo, N.Y..
      In the summer of 2008, John and Shirley Mecke contacted Sister
      Dolores O'Sullivan, the youngest daughter of James O'Sullivan and Teresa
      Gallagher. John Mecke is a grandson of Jim Brown, who owned and
      operated the Kinkora store from the 1920's through the early 1950's, and
      the great-grandson of Robert and Margaret Shannahan Brown.
      Sister Dolores was a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph and living
      in their retirement home in London, Ontario. She was the last living of the
      seventeen children of James and Teresa, and was very helpful in not only
      providing information about her family's history, but also information about
      other descendants of her grandparents, Peter O'Sullivan and Bridgid
      Brown.
      Peter O'Sullivan lived in McKillop Township, Huron County, Ontario,
      Canada, living with his parents and siblings in 185132. He lived in Irishtown,
      Huron County, Ontario, Canada in 185830. He was counted in the census in

      viii. EDWARD BROWN was born about Abt. June 28, 1836 in Ballyhahill, County
      Limerick, Ireland1, 4, 19-20, 33. He died on September 24, 1923 in 339 Huron,
      Stratford, Ontario, Canada at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Mary
      Bannon.15. He married Bridget Collins, daughter of Patrick Collins and Jane
      York, on July 20, 1864 in St. Joseph's Church, Stratford, Ontario, Canada30.
      She was born on April 05, 1846 in Ontario, Upper Canada1, 4, 20. She died
      on December 31, 1906 in Ontario, Canada5.
      Edward Brown was baptized on July 08, 1836 in Shanagolden Parish, most
      likely at the church of Our Lady of the Visitation, Ballyhahill, County Limrick,
      Ireland19. Baptismal Sponsors: July 08, 1836 (Maria Walsh and John

      Interesting coincidence: Peter O'Sullivan and Bridgid Brown were Peter Frances Alexander Etue's Great Grandparents on his maternal side. They were Peter's mother; Mary Lillian Wild's maternal grandparents. Coincidentally Peter Frances Alexander Etue and his first wife; Shirley Sandra Dingle were married in St Joseph's Church Stratford, Ontario, 107 years, 2 months later on Saturday 24 Apr 1965, the same church as Peter O'Sullivan & Bridgid Brown were married in.

      Bridgid Brown and Peter O'Sullivan
      ------------------------------------------------------------
      Bridgid apparently came to Canada with her parents, followed her mother and brothers to the Perth County area, and there met and married Peter O'Sullivan. Peter was the son of Patrick and Johanna (McGrath) O?Sullivan from Irishtown, as the St.Columban area was known in the early and mid-1850's. After Bridgid and Peter's marriage, they lived on the First Concession of McKillop Township, Huron County, just west of the main area of St. Columban. All of their eleven children were baptized in the St. Columban Church, and Bridgid and Peter are buried in the church cemetery. One of the daughters, Margaret, married, moved to North Dakota, and had a family born there. Another daughter, Catherine, married, and eventually moved to the
      state of Washington. A son, Joe, died relatively young in Detroit, Michigan. Some of the rest of the family married and lived in Ontario. There are a number of O'Sullivan's
      buried in the St. Columban Cemetery.
      In 2008, John and Shirley Mecke, following up leads from an old newspaper obituary, contacted Sister Dolores O'Sullivan, the youngest daughter of James O'Sullivan and Teresa Gallagher and a granddaughter of Bridgid Brown and Peter O'Sullivan. Sister Dolores was a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph and living in their retirement home in London, Ontario. She was the last living of the seventeen children of James and Teresa, and was very helpful in not only providing information about her family's history, but also information about other descendants of her grandparents.
      Through Sister, I contacted, and have corresponded with Peter Etue, a great-grandson of Bridgid and Peter O'Sullivan. Peter is responsible for maintaining the "Canadian" part of a very well done family history website on a branch of his family. Between visits with Sister, her prayer cards and old newspaper obits and Peter's
      correspondence we now know something about 135 or so descendants of Bridgid and Peter O'Sullivan.

      Generation 1
      1. BRIDGID1 BROWN was born about Abt. June 26, 1834 in Ballyhahill, County Limerick, Ireland1-3. She died on April 27, 1918 in Lot 12, Concession 1, McKillop Township, Huron
      County, Ontario, Canada4. She married Peter O'Sullivan, son of Patrick O'Sullivan and Johanna McGrath, on February 15, 1858 in St. Joseph's Church, Stratford, Ontario, Canada5. He was born between 1825-1832 in Ireland1-2, 6. He died on March 10, 1907 in Lot 12, Concession 1, McKillop Township, Huron County, Ontario, Canada2, 6. Bridgid Brown was baptized on July 06, 1834 in Shanagolden Parish, most likely at the Church of Our Lady of the Visitation, Ballyhahill, County Limrick, Ireland3. Baptismal Sponsors: July 06, 1834 (Anna Connors and Patrick Walsh3) She lived in Ellice Township, Perth County, Ontario, Canada in 18585. She lived in Lot 12, Concession 1, McKillop Township, Huron County, Ontario, Canada in 1911 (living with her son and his
      family.). Death Informant: April 27, 1918 (James O'Sullivan2) Death Record: April 29, 1918 in McKillop Township, Huron County, Ontario, Canada; #0207592 She was buried on April 30, 1918 in St. Columban Cemetery, St. Columban, Ontario, Canada4, 7. Her cause of death was Pneumonia for 3 days; atheroma, old age for several years; Dr. C. McKay2. She was also known as Bridget8.

      Notes for Bridgid Brown: Bridgid apparently came to Canada with her parents, followed her mother and brothers to the Perth County area, and there met and married Peter O'Sullivan. Peter was the son of Patrick and Johanna (McGrath) O'Sullivan from Irishtown, as the St. Columban
      area was known in the early and mid 1850's. After Bridgid and Peter's marriage, they lived on the First Concession of McKillop Township, Huron County, just west of the main area of St. Columban. All of their children were baptized in the St. Columban Church, and Bridgid and Peter are buried in the
      church cemetery. Little more was originally known of the descendants of this family. During the winter of 2003 contact was made with the descendants of one of Peter's younger sisters, a Bridget O'Sullivan who had married William John Nash. Bridget and William John had married in St. Columban in 1863, and had eleven children born in
      McKillop Township. William and Bridget Nash and their entire family left Ontario, Canada around 1900, moving to Montana, and claimed a homestead in the Gallatin Valley section of the state. Many of the descendants of this family today live in the Bozeman, Montana and Los Angeles, California areas. The following Bridget O'Sullivan obituary, was received from Barbara Valino in July 2007. Barbara is a great-granddaughter of Edward Brown, and the obituary most likely appeared in a local paper at the time of Bridget's death.
      Mrs. Bridget Brown
      One of the very few remaining pioneers of the Huron Tract passed away at her home in McKillop on Saturday, April 27, in the person of Bridget Brown, widow of the late Peter O'Sullivan, at the good age of 88 years. Mrs. O'Sullivan was born in Limerick, Ireland, in 1835, but came to Canada with her father, brothers and sisters in the year 1850, the family first settled in Caledonia. The following year they moved to Stratford and in 1854 settled in Kinkora, where on February 14th, 1858, she was married to the late Peter O'Sullivan. Immediately after the marriage the young couple went to McKillop and settled on

      Lot 12, on the Huron Road, three and a half miles from Seaforth, where she continued to reside until her death. She was a most estimable women, kind and loving in the home and a true and helping neighbor. In religion she was a faithful and devout member of St. Columban Catholic church, where the funeral services were held on Tuesday, high mass being celebrated by the pastor, Rev. Father Burke and the remains were interred in the family plot in St. Columban cemetery; the funeral being one of the largest ever held in the section, there being 115 carriages in the procession, which amply testified to the esteem in which she was held during her long residence in the township. Mr. O'Sullivan died on March 10, 1917, but from a family of nine children, three sons and five daughters survive: Miss Mary at home, Mrs. James O'Connell, Stratford; Mrs. Frank Farrel, Fargo, N.D.; Mrs. Valentine Wild, Bayfield; Mrs. James A. Downey, of Vancouver, Washington; Peter, the well known cattle buyer; James, on the homestead, and John, Buffalo, N.Y..
      In the summer of 2008, John and Shirley Mecke contacted Sister Dolores O'Sullivan, the youngest daughter of James O'Sullivan and Teresa Gallagher. John Mecke is a grandson of Jim Brown, who owned and operated the Kinkora store from the 1920's through the early 1950's, and the great-grandson of Robert and Margaret
      Shannahan Brown.
      Sister Dolores was a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph and living in their retirement home in London, Ontario. She was the last living of the seventeen children of James and Teresa, and was very helpful in not only providing information about her family's history, but also information about other descendants of her grandparents, Peter O'Sullivan and Bridgid Brown.
      Peter O'Sullivan lived in McKillop Township, Huron County, Ontario, Canada, living with his parents and siblings in 185123. He lived in Irishtown, Huron County, Ontario, Canada
