Can anyone help me connect these ancestors? Julia GLEASON married Patrick DOUGHERTY in Ireland, probably about 1825 to 1830. According to family lore my great great Grandfather Michael was born to them in Tiperrary August 1832(died May 19, 1918). The family emmigrated to Canada. While in Quebec, Michael wed Winifred CAIN through an Irish match make. They migrated to New London (now London), Ontario and had several children. After the American Civil War concluded they moved to Dubuque, Iowa. They had several more children while there(final total of 10, 5 boys & 5 girls;Patrick, Michael,James Bernard, John, William, Josephine "Johanna", Juliana, Bridget, Mary Jane, Teresa Winifred[my great grandmother],). They again moved west to the northeast corner of Nebraska. They farmed around Emerson for some time. After Winifred died Michael and 2 sons moved further west in Nebraska while working on the railroad. They ended up in Alliance, Nebraska. If there is anyone out there who can help me with Patrick or Julia's ancestors, please contact me. I have a lot of information on Michaels line forward and am willing to share.
