Re: Keane's of Montreal, Quebec Canada

Hi Sandra, Many thanks for notifying me. Re our family, the Keane's/Kane's. Are we related? Probably I would think but I don't know how yet. I mean, my Keane's and your Keane's must have known each for sure. How? I'm still looking. In the meantime, I will tell you what I have. Do you have access to by the way?


I descend from Patrick Kane/Keane (born about 1805) and Johanna Fitzgerald (born about 1810) of Co. Kerry, Ireland. They did not come to Canada but their son Thomas did. This is as far as I can go back in Ireland. I do not know the names of their other children. If you and I are related it would through their children I think.

Their son, Thomas Kane/Keane (born around 1833 in Ireland) married Johanna Burke, Oct 15, 1855 so Thomas must have come from Ireland prior to then. You know, he was a young man then. And his parents stayed back in Ireland (at least his father was dead for sure) so I have always thought he would have come to Quebec with a sibling or a cousin or some family member.

Do you know who the parents of John Francis Keane were? And do you know if they married in Quebec? If your John Francis' parents married here, then it should show their parents as well. That's how I found the names of my Thomas' parents. When he married Johanna Burke in Montreal, it said he was the son of the late Patrick Kane/Keane and Johanna Fitzgerald of Co. Kerry.

As I asked you, do you have access to Ancestry? If you don't, I will look the info up for you. You'll have to give a me a few days because all of a sudden I seem very busy plus my computer is not working all that well (it may have to be brought into the shop) plus I'm still on "dial-up internet" and not high-speed. Oh, the joys of living in the country!

Anyway, my Thomas Keane and Johanna Burke had the following children:

1. Johanna Keane, born 1856
2. Ellen Keane, born 1858
3. Patrick Keane, born 1861, d1916, He was my great grandfather. He married Henrietta Kelly. Their daughter, Irene Kane/Keane married Patrick Carbray (my grandparents).
4. James Keane, b 1862
5. Thomas Keane, b 1864
6. Michael Keane, b 1865
7. Mary Ann Keane, b 1867
