Researching in Toronto I recently discovered letters and depositions concerning some McCabes who came from Monaghan. In summary:
1. Brothers Francis and Patrick McCabe left Magheracloone about 1830, leaving their families behind. Francis' wife was Sarah RICHARDS and Patrick's wife was Sarah ??. The brothers settled in OPS, Victoria Co, ON .
2. Patrick died around 1845, never seeing his family again. Patrick's only son Patrick came to OPS abt 1854 seeking his father's land (Conc 3 lot 13). Evidently his mother Sarah and only sister Catherine stayed in Ireland. Letters from Sarah and Francis attest to these facts.
3. Francis' wife Sarah RICHARDS died in Ireland. Eventually Francis' son Simon came to OPS abt 1851 and later homesteaded in Wisconsin. Francis' dau Elizabeth wedded Patrick DUNN in Ireland and they came to OPS abt 1859. Evidently a third son of Francis, also named Francis, came to OPS as he is also mentioned in old Francis' will of 1862.
Anyone wishing more information, or who has more information, please contact me. Tom McCabe San Marcos Tx
