Weir Family - Gillyholme (Ire) to Cavan Ontario Canada
Posted by: Jacqui (ID *****4646) Date: November 01, 2011 at 10:19:55

Hi, I am looking for the Weir family who left GILLYHOLME (Nth of Ireland) around 1839 to go to Canada. They settled in an area called CAVAN in ONTARIO.
WILLIAM and AGNES (Nee Teevan) were married in 1817 (Fermanagh).
Their two eldest children, George (b1818) and Elizabeth (b1819), remained in Fermanagh but there are three other children who were baptised in the Devenish parish who must have went with William and Agnes. They are William christened 23/2/1820, Thomas christened 28/3/1830 and Anne Jane christened 23/9/1832. It does seem funny that there is a ten year gap between William and Thomas but i can't find any others in this period. It is believed that Agnes died shortly after arriving in Canada.
Can anyone help?
