I too have a Richard Aylward in my family tree. I'm told he came from Kilkenny Co. Ireland as well. Unfortunately, I do not know where in Kilkenny Co. though. Richard married Mary Haberlin, and they along with their daughter and son immigrated to Canada in either 1853 or 1860. Unfortunately, the "Year of Immigration" entries for his daughter in both the 1901 and 1911 Canadian census where I got this information were not consistent.
Richard settled in Stanstead, Quebec with his family. I believe he was the only Aylward in his family line that settled in Quebec. According to Richard's death certificate, he died at the age of 75 in 1883 making his dob about 1808.
His daughter was Margaret (b. 1843), married to John Farrell, my gg grandparents. They settled in Montreal. His son was David (b. 1845), who changed his surname to Elwood when he moved to Lincoln, Illinois. He raised a family of about 6 children (William, John, Emma, George, Helen, and Albert). I'm currently researching this side of the Aylwards.
After reading your posting, I'm now curious of why David moved to Illinois. Is it because of relatives? And further, is it possible they emmigrated to Illinois in 1853 first, and then to Canada in 1860? Is this why the census records for his daughter were inconsistent?
Can you let me know if the 2 Richard Aylward families settled in McHenry County, or did one move away? If one moved away, do you know where?
Also, I have Whelan/Phelan's in my family tree as well. James Whelan/Phelan, my ggg grandfather, was born about 1781 (not sure where) but he immigrated to Nicolet, Quebec about the 1830's. James was married to Margaret Clancy (b. 1793). I doubt we have a connection here, but you never knows.
