I have lost the contact info for the reader who contacted me in April 2014, with a query about William Fitzgerald and his wife Ellen, who emigrated from Ireland to Hastings Co., Ontario.
But: I have recently heard from someone who does have some information. For example, apparently the maiden name of William’s wife Ellen was that of Bourke. Please email me at mcmoran at gmail dot com if you wish to know more.
The original query, posted here on 29 April 2014:
Fitzgerald, from Ireland to Hastings Co., Ontario
A reader is looking for information on William Fitzgerald (born in Ireland about 1816) and his wife Ellen (born in Ireland about 1813). The couple emigrated from Ireland, and came to Hastings Co., Ontario in 1843. One of their sons, John Fitzgerald, married Mary Ann Hickey in 1864. Many of the family are buried at St. Ignatius R.C. Cemetery in Maynooth, McClure Township, Hastings Co., Ontario.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.
