I am looking for information about JAMES HALLIHAN who was born in County Waterford about 1809. He married HONORA HENNESSEY, also from Irleand. Don't know if they married in Ireland, or in CANADA, where they were by 1845 when their daughter ELIZABETH was born. By 1847, they were in BURLINGTON, VERMONT, USA, where the rest of their children were born. I need to know his parents names & hers, also, if possible. Is it fairly true that back in the early days the Irish named their first son after their Father, rather than after themselves? If so, James' Father most likely would have been John & what is John in Gaelic? Sean??
