This may be a long shot, but look at the Ulster, N.Y., Town of Rochester 1850 census records (pg 56 of 77) for what appears to be "Uone Feeney, wife Elizabeth, and five children. "Uone" might be a strange spelling for Owen? My interest is the Martin Dunn family on the same page: Jane Dunn, age 25, is actually Jane Feeney -- more than likely some connection here - maybe Jane and Owen were siblings? It appears most of the people living in the area were associated in some way with the local canal - perhaps Irish labor used in digging the canal?
If this is the right family (Owen Feeney), you might have some leads that would help me tracing the origin of the Dunn family in Ireland.
