The Descendants of Patrick McKenna and Bridget McCullough
Generation No. 1
1. PATRICK1 MCKENNA was born August 15, 1834 in Ireland1, and died October 26, 1907 in Fort Augustus, PEI. He married BRIDGET MCCULLOUGH July 30, 1867 in St Patrick's Parish Fort Augustus, Prince Edward Island, Canada, daughter of JAMES MCCULLOUGH. She was born February 02, 1839 in Ireland, and died November 06, 1913 in Charlottetown, PEI.
Notes for PATRICK MCKENNA: 1881 and 1891 census shows the family living in Lot 37 -- 1880 map of PEI (seen at the Archives in PEI) shows a 28 acre farm in the Dromore section of the Lot. It is near farms owned by Hugh McKenna, H. McKenna, Francis McKenna and Peter McKenna
Because of the close ties St. Patrick's Church had with the County Monaghan in Ireland -- assume that the family emigrated from there.
