poss: Feeney/Woolley connection, Feeney/Rush (Irish) of Lancashire Eng, & USA
Posted by: andrea (ID *****6541) Date: September 18, 2006 at 08:29:08

I have posted in the Woolley forum because I am looking for the birth parents of Ellen Woolley orphaned and raised by Ellen (Feeney) Rush. Ellen Feeney b. 1857 Lancashire, and married James Rush in Oldham in 1879. Mrs Feeney-Rush is quite possily Ellen Woolley's aunt. They are on the Newark,NJ USA 1910 census. Ellen Rush is listed as a mother-in-law but her son Augustine Rush b 1885 is listed as a cousin of Ellen Woolley (Moneypenny).

I am told that Ellen Woolley first migrated to Massachusetts in 1880's and married William Moneypenny there at the church of the Assumption. BUT since Ellen Woolley refers to Ellen Rush as her mother, it is impossible to locate her true parents. All I know is that their last name is Woolley.

Ellen Feeney-Rush I see over several census's had been back and forth between America and England. A relative said Ellen Rush had been sponsored to come to America by a Feeney uncle but I am unsure who this uncle may be or what state he was in. It had to be before 1885 since her son was born in usa in 1885.

So I am trying to find any connection between Ellen (Feeney) Rush to a woman who married a Mr. Woolley and had Ellen Woolley in 1871. This all would have happened in the Manchester/Oldham/Salford areas of Lancashire England. I am trying to discover Ellen Woolley's true parents. Can anyone help me???
