I am searching for information on the WHALEN family who came to Nelson County after 1795, but many moved to Edgar County (Paris), IL around 1830. Those who went to Illinoins were Michael and Patrick WHALEN (brothers) and their families. I am trying to situate them in the vast number of WHALENs who were in Nelson County at that time, but who had come from Maryland (what is now the either Montgomery County or the District of Columbia. Michael WHALEN's daughter Mary married Thomas MOGAN in Nelson County around 1826. Thomas and Mary were my ggg grandparents. I would appreciate any tie in with the Maryland WHALEN, WHELAN, WHALLAND, etc. families.
