I just found your message and found it very interesting. I am a descendant of Michael and Bridget Whelan from Ireland to Maryland. Their son Michael Josiah Sr and wife Grace Eleanor Tennelly came into KY possibly Nelson and Washington Cos. Michael died and is buried in Washington Co possibly St Rose Cemetery?. Grace moved into Meade Co with Michael Josiah Jr.and several other siblings. They all lived around Flaherty in Meade Co and buried at St Martins cemetery. This is my home town and I have many Whelan relatives living around this area.

I am most interested if this all fits with your information and also, very interested in the Whelan that went to Paris, IL. Please reply if you feel this is your line of Whelans. Thanks, Wayne
