What a great site! I spent many summers in Frampton as a child
visiting family(mostly Walsh's) and I am familiar with much of
the area. I will be sure to pass on this site to others in our
family. I am not sure if we are related to one of the early
settlers John Walsh but I will talk to some of the older family
members to find out. I have managed to gather a good collection
of photo's of Walsh's and those they have married as well as a
fairly detailed Family Tree. If this can be of some use to your
site or to anyone else feel free to email me @
email@example.com . I am looking for more photo's of family
members and their progeny who left for warmer climes

I would like to thank Dennis McLane for all the time and effort
he put into making the Indexes on Irish Families and Events in
Dorchester County, Quebec. These CD's have provided a wealth of
knowledge in reconstructing my family history, particularily
with my great grand parents Hugh Daly and Bridget Doyle who
resided in Frampton from (approx)1831-1840. The township maps
gave me a visual reference of where they resided and the
proximity within which the family members lived.

Your website is very impressive. I can't thank you enough for
the effort you've made. I am descended from the McLaughlins,
Duncans and Dawsons in Frampton, and have visited Frampton once
myself. Stumbling across your site has made my month!

Dennis, We love your site, and enjoy reading all the responses
that your getting in your guest book. Thank you again for all
your time in researching our Family history (McLane). It was
nice for me to learn about my Grandfather Miles and all of our
Irish-Canadian ancestors. We are proud of you and hope to see
Your brother Tim.

You've put out a very interesting website!! My mother being a
Colgan from St. Odilon de Cranbourne, your website allowed me to
know a little more about my Irish heritage. Just as an example, I
didn't know about the old Frampton Cemetery in the "rang 2". I
visited it just 3 days ago, it's very beautiful with all those

I was checking in and read the posting from Cindy Kelly. Yes,
it sounds like my grandfather Tom was your grandfather's
brother. I expect that your grandfather was John. If you would
like to send me an email I would be happy to share my research
with you and give you an update on this Kelly branch. My email
address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be happy to also
correspond with anyone else who might have a mutual

I am so impressed with the amount of information on your website,
Dennis. Thanks so much for all your hard work, you have
undoubtedly shed a welcome light on the ancestry of many Frampton
Irish descendants! I have Kelly ancestors from the Frampton area
and will be visiting Quebec this summer. I intend to visit
Frampton to find out more about our family. I noticed another
guest, Tom Kelly, who signed your book mentioned grandparents by
the name of Thomas Kelly and Mary Reid who moved to Rumford
Maine. I wonder if these might be relatives of ours as I remember
my father talking about his Uncle Tom and Aunt Minnie who moved
to Rumford Maine from Quebec. I know Great Uncle Tom came to
visit us once in Alma Quebec where I once lived, because we have
a picture of him in our living room.
Thanks again. Cindy Kelly

I agree with the other comments posted here: This is a wonderful,
and very thoroughly researched web site. Although I am not of
Irish descent, I am a direct descendant of the main land owner in
the township during the early 19th century, Pierre Edouard
Desbarats, hence my interest...

Dennis, I couldn't be happier to have found your site. I've
been researching the McGraths in Frampton and St. Malachy for
years and my only regret is not finding them in your story, but
they were definitely there. The Duncans and Colgans were
related to us through marriage, my great Aunt Nellie McGrath
married John Duncan in 1899; and her sister, Alice McGrath,
married Lawrence Colgan (Coligan)in 1893 and brought her family
up in Cranbourne. I visited their farmhouse there in the
1950s. My grandfather, Joseph McGrath came to Boston ca. 1898.

I had been wanting to research notaire events for my DUNCAN ancestors in Frampton. Did not
know where to begin. Thanks so much for offering your Index of Irish Events of Frampton and Vicinity
CD in a easy to access pdf format. A nice partner to that CD is the Frampton Township
Range/Lots Maps which help locate land transactions recorded in the notaire events. I now have a
clearer vision of how the families related to each other geographically.

Thank you for all your work. I do not know if my Quigleys and
Doyles are related to yours, but I will use your wonderful site.
It is impressive. My great-great grandparents, Edward Quigley
and Catherine Moore were married at Notre-Dame-de-Quebec on 15
Feb 1836. Their daughter Caroline married John Doyle in 1866 at
St. Columb-de-Sillery. White researching in Quebec, I learned
of another Quigley in Frampton. I am still trying to make the
connection. Thank you! Barbara

fantastic! You have certainly done an in depth research for this

information in these books. Thank you for your indepth research,
and offering the information for people to purchase! I am more

Congratulations Dennis, for your magnificent website. There's
just one word to describe it "subliminal". The time and effort
you put into this project for the research, construction, and
editing of the website is phenomenal and unimaginable. I will
spend many hours enjoying reading and rereading this most
interesting and invaluable treasure of Frampton Irish history.
You can certainly say to yourself, "Mission accomplished".
It was very pleasant to read about familiar Frampton Irish
family names which were often mentionned to me by my dad when I
was a youngster.
My grandfather, Michael Furlong, and my dad, Myles, were born in
Frampton. My father use to say that everyone in Frampton was
related in some way or another.
Somehow, we're related to the Conroys, Quigleys, Reids,
Redmonds, Brennans, Kellys, Maghers, O'Farrells and Whealans.
Many, Many Thanks Again.
Cap Rouge, Quebec
