I see part of one of my posts was cut off... John DUNCAN and Ellen SMITH named a son, Archibald. I assume named after Ellen's father.

to DDuncan, What a welcome coincidence, I thought I would check the blog again and you have answered. Thank you. This is fantastic! It seems we are related. I descend from Ellen's older brother , William. It is new info to me that Ellen was his second wife. Was Elizabeth Weir's burial presided over by Reverend? Felix J. Boyle? From another distant relative , info from Ancestor.ca has George Weir as being the father of Elizabeth Weir. It would be great if you could e-mail me. Once again thank you. Gerard.lalonde2rogers.com

Violet May DOHERTY Daughter of John Henry DOHERTY and Jane Emily CRAWFORD > Son of William John DOHERTY and Maria Victoria DOWNES > Son of John DOHERTY and Rebecca DUNCAN. I have no hard proof, but I strongly believe Rebecca DUNCAN is the sister of my GGG Grandfather James DUNCAN. John DOHERTY and wife Rebecca DUNCAN - John McLAUGHLIN and wife Catherine DUNCAN - James DUNCAN and wife Mary Ann McCONNELL - ALL 3 couples have children baptized at the First Presbyterian Church in Derry City, Londonderry, IRE in mid-to-late 1820's. Then they all appear in Frampton, Quebec 1830-1831.

This Frampton site has really been a god-send. I am hoping that I will be able to find out more about the Archibald Smith/Smyth that you talk about in the blogs. He is supposed to be my gggg grandfather. I was hoping that Maureen might help me . She seems to know some about Arch Smith and Elizabeth Wear/Ware .

Just found out today through Ancestry.com, that my husband's Grandfather Thomas Rochford travelled to Frampton from Ballymote in Co Sligo by passenger ship in 1923, he had apparently first travelled there in 1908. During our family history investigations we were always under the impression he worked in Boston Mass. I cannot believe what I have found on your website over the last couple of hours. Thomas, I believe travelled between Ireland and Frampton so I do not expect to discover any relatives, but anyone knowing of any Rochford's, please let me know. Any info would be appreciated.

I was fascinated by the detailed description of your Wexford trip. I share a connection to your Wexford Murphy's and am just starting to trace my relatives from CA-Missouri-Frampton- Ireland. Thanks for the specific, documented information and colorful background descriptions on your geneological adventures! It has motivated me to keep researching!

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR HISTORICAL INFORMATION ON THE FRAMPTON, PQ, IRISH. I AM PRESENTLY WORKING ON MY FAMILY TREE - GETTING MOST OF MY INFO FROM ANCESTRTY. COM BUT FIND THERE IS ONLY SOOOO MUCH INFO AVAILABLE - MY NEXT STEP IS DOING WHAT YOU DID......GO TO IRELAND. I FOUND YOUR WEBSITE LAST NIGHT AND WAS UP TIL 3 AM READING YOUR INFO. IT'S VERY INTESESTING AND HELPFUL. I HAD TO FORCE MYSELF TO GO TO BED and THEN ALL I DID WAS THINK ABOUT MY ANCESTERS FOR 2 HRS BEFORE I FINALLY FELL ASLEEP :). I WOULD LIKE TO USE YOUR SERVICES TO GET INFO ON IMMIGRATION FROM IRELAND TO QUEBEC, CANADA RE MY RELATIVES. MY GG GRANDFATHER PATRICK 'HANGS'? MCCAFFREY, WIFE ANN SCALLON HAD THREE CHILDREN. THE FIRST TWO: CHARLES (B. 1817) AND MARY(B. 1820) WERE BORN IN IRELAND AND YOUNGEST SON PATRICK WAS BORN IN QUEBEC, ST. GILES, CANADA 3 SEP 1824. THEREFORE, I AM ASSUMING THEY IMMIGRATED TO QUEBEC SOMEWHERE IN THE 1821 - 1824 TIMEFRAME. MOST OF THE INFO I'VE RECEIVED SHOWS THEY LIVED IN LOWER EAST, QUEBEC, THE ST. SYLVESTRE, FRAMPTON AREA. BY THE WAY, I DON'T KNOW WHY P. MCCAFFREY (B. 1792) IS REFERRED TO P. HANGS MCCAFFREY? I ONLY COPIED IT SO I COULD DEFRENTIATE BETWEEN THE PATRICKS! UNTIL I KNOW FOR SURE. RE: THE 1852 CANADIAN CENSUS THERE IS ALSO A MEMBER OF HIS FAMILY - A JOHN MCCAFFREY WITH STATED AGE AS 75 (B. ABT 1778) ALSO LIVING IN THE HOUSEHOLD. I HAVE NO IDEA WHO HE IS. I SUSPECT HE'S EITHER AND OLDER BROTHER OF PATRICK HANGS OR AN UNCLE. THIS 'JOHN MCCAFFREY' DIED ST. SYLVESTRE, PQ, 1856 HIS SPOUSE MARGARET QUIGLEY ALSO STATES HE WAS FROM COUNTY TYRONE IN IRELAND. ANYTHING YOU CAN HELP ME WITH WILL BE APPRECIATED. I'M WILLING TO PAY FOR INFO YOU OBTAIN.
