In Reply to: Courtney family from County Kerry, Ireland by Ann Courtney of 94931

So if he arrived at age 14, abt 1846 ....

But more importantly, this Florence NY family is using Daniel AND Dennis??? I think this looks like them. The trick is to hunt down THIS 1850 family and see where their paper trail leads to confirm or rule them out.

Name: Edmund Courtney
Age: 17
Birth Year: abt 1833
Birthplace: Ireland
Home in 1850: Florence, Oneida, New York
Gender: Male
Family Number: 41
Household Members: Name Age
Dennis Courtney 57
Daniel Courtney 27
John Courtney 24
Humphrey Courtney 22
Bridget Courtney 19
Edmund Courtney 17

And this is probably Dennis' brother:

Name: Humphrey Courtney
Age: 49
Birth Year: abt 1801
Birthplace: Ireland
Home in 1850: Florence, Oneida, New York
Gender: Male
Family Number: 29
Household Members: Name Age

Catharine Courtney 40 IRE
John C Courtney 21 IRE
Humphrey Courtney 14 IRE
Michael Courtney 8 CT

COURTNEY, HUMPHREY, was born in Ireland, March 25, 1836, and came to the United States with his parents, Humphrey and Catherine Courtney, in 1839. Humphrey Courtney sr., was employed in an iron foundry in the State of Connecticut, where he had charge of a coal yard until 1844, when he came to Florence and cleared a portion of the farm now owned by his son, which consists of 265 acres mostly improved land. He was much respected by his townsmen and held many important offices of trust in his day. Humphrey Courney was educated in the town of Florence after which he engaged in farming, keeping a dairy of twenty cows, besides young cattle and horses, and is a prosperous and successful farmer. He married Ellen Boland of Florence, by whom he has had twelve children. Mr. Courtney has been a prominent man in politics, was assessor of the town for three years, and supervisor for the same number of years. While supervisor he caused to be made many wholesome changes in the local government of his town which was and is a benefit to the taxpayers then and for years to come. (p. 9) [Top]
