Descendants of Michael O'Connor

Generation No. 1

1. MICHAEL1 O'CONNOR died Bef. 11/8/1844. He married CATHERINE O'HARA.

Notes for MICHAEL O'CONNOR:

Identification of this generation is based on tenuous assumptions. There were two (O)Connor families in Cascumpec in the mid 1820's. One consisted of five children on Hill's list of Cascumpec in 1826. I have determined them to be children of Michael O'Connor and Catherine O'Hara because of the 1844 marriage record of Mary O'Connor [their daughter?], to Patrick Aylward. If this Mary is the same one as the five year old Mary who was one of the five children; and if the Edward O'Connor who married Margaret O'Connor daughter of Maurice O'Connor was a brother of the five then this is the right family. The other Margaret O'Connor (15 yrs old on the list) married William Kinch. Maurice O'Connor and his family arrived soon after 1826.

Children of MICHAEL O'CONNOR and CATHERINE O'HARA are:

2. i. EDWARD2 O'CONNOR, b. Abt. 1806, Wexford, Ireland; d. Abt. 1877, PEI.

Notes for PATRICK O'CONNOR:

A Patrick O'Connor born in PEI about 1819 married a Marian Carter and had the following children; Catherine b. 1842, Jonathan b. 1844 and Robert b. 1847 according to a gr gr grandson, Ambrose's wife from New Brunswick.

Notes for EDWARD O'CONNOR:

I have a lot of info on this line from Gerry and Mary and Patrick Norton which I have not added to this file as it is uncertain that Edward is related and if he is he would be my gr.gr. mother, Margaret's brother. However later generations intersect with and can be found on my Mackie line.
