Thanks for your message. I do not know William's parents names or if he had siblings--only that William and his wife Grace appear in various Canadian (mostly Catholic Church) records between 1840 and 1871. William is originally from Offaly County, (formerly Kings County) Ireland. His wife was from Leix County (formerly Queens County). I know Grace is buried in Oxford County, Ontario, Canada in 1858 and William survieves her by at least 7 years as he later turns up in Morris Township, Huron County, Ontario, Canada. I have had difficulty finding him or his daughters' families (McSloy, Walker and Ween) after 1864-65. If any of this is familiar from you ggm's biography, please feel free to contact me at
