Meaghers and Fogartys
My Tipperary ancestors, Meaghers, first settled in Genesee County N.Y. about 1860 and then moved on to Grey County, Ontario.  The Fogarty's, which family name apparently originated in Tipperary immigrated from Kerry to Paris, Ontario then on north to Grey County.  There was intermarriage between the families.  Many of the Meaghers moved on to Akron, Ohio about 1917.  The Fogartys mainly stayed in Ontario except for one son who moved to Edmonton AB. in 1912.  I have much of the downline from both those families.

John Robert Stanley, Borrisokane, Co. Tipperary, Ireland
I am interested in knowing more about the inn that John Robert operated around 1834 in Ottawa (Bytown).  It was called the Carleton Hotel and was located on the south side of Wellington Street between Bank and Kent Streets.  I would also like to know more about his dealings with Nicholas Sparks.

Hello to the Tipperary interest list

My name is Benjiman John Long, and I am seeking information of my grand father Edward Long of Cloughjordan, Co Tipperary.  He died March 03 1947 and was married to Anna Maria Donovan.  She died 06 January 1936.  I do not know of their birth & marriage details but feel both Edward and Anna Maria may be buried in Modreeny cemetery.

Edward Long had three sons, George Thomas (my father, born in Dunganstown, Co Wicklow, September 02 1893),  Edward Benjamin, and William John.  They were all born in Co Wicklow.  Edward and Anna also had twin girls who I feel may have died in infancy, Charlotte Jane and Maud Emily.

My uncles Edward Benjamin & William John, married sisters, Elizabeth Francis Lewis & Sarah Florence Lewis respectively.

Children of Edward Benjamin & Elizabeth Francis all baptised in Modreeny Paris (not sure of actual church);
    John Kieran b. September 27 1935
    Edward Weston b. July 28 1937
    Noelle Florence b. December 21 1938
    George Ernest b. February 02 1940

Children of William John & Sarah Florence, again all baptised in Modreeny Parish;
    Gladys Ann b. March 30 1924
    Gertrude Sarah b. June 20 1926
    Davis Edward b. April 21 1930
    John William b. September 10 1933
    Victor Lewis b. March 31 1939
    William Eric b. July 18 1941
    George Ernest b. April 23 1935

It appears prior to moving to Dunganstown in Co Wiclow, that my grand parents, Edward and Anna lived in Tipperary.  They settled back in Cloughjordan Park, Cloughjordan, Co Tipperary which was probably prior to 1900 and remained the area. 

As well as looking for Long, & Lewis, I am following the names of Armitage, Blackwell, Cavanagh (Kavanagh), Donovan, and Kent in Cloughjordan Tipperary, and Kent in Laois.

Any information of Edward Long and Anna Maria Long (Donovan) would be very much appreciated.

Thank you
