I am interested in the sibling or parents of Charles Conlon b. 1803 CO. Leitrim and or Elizabeth Moran b. 1807 CO. Letirm.
Charles and Elizabeth lived in CO. Leitrim, Ireland prior to arriving in America. Drumshambo parish records show that they had James? baptized there. Charles left CO. Leitrim in 1847 and sailed out of Liverpool, England on December 12, 1847. He traveled with Michael, and some other kids, on the boat Erins Queen. The Erins Queens arrived in New Orleans on February 8, 1848. It is not clear when the rest of the family came to the United States.
Charles, Elizabeth and their family were living in Cincinnati, Hamilton CO. OH at the time of the 1850 Census. Charles is list as a farmer at that time. In 1851 Charles filed a declaration of citizenship in Hamilton, CO. OH. By the time of the 1860 Census, Charles and Elizabeth are found living in Daviess CO. IN. Charles owned several tracts of land in that county that the family farmed. Members of the family after that time can be found both in Daviess Co. and Hamilton Co.
Elizabeth must have died first as Charles is listed as a single man in a 1883 deed. She is listed on another deed in 1876 so she must have died between that time.
We know that Elizabeth did have a sister living in the United States. In the 1880 Hamilton CO. OH Census, a Kate Moran is listed as being the aunt of Michael Conlon, Elizabeth's son. It is also possible that Charles had several brother living in the United States. In Daviess CO. IN there were three other Conlon families that are listed. A Patrick Conlon, b. 1807; James Conlon, b. 1810 and a Michael Conlon, born 1820. Patrick and James lived next store to each other and both were farmers. Michael had a son who was buried in St. Joseph's Cemetery, in Price Hill.
