Corrections: Lawless from Kilkenny to Quebec to Chippewa MI

I have redone the research on the family of John Lawless, who with two siblings came from County Kilkenny in Ireland to the area just to the west of Quebec City. I need to get in touch with the person who did the original research, because i discovered 3-4 major errors in your genealogy. If Denis reads this, maybe you can point me in the right direction. On the genealogy report you gave me, the two email addresses were both defunct. Corrections: John's daughters Margaret and Mary have been merged into one person; Judith has been cancelled as a daughter (she was separate Lawlor); there is no evidence whatsoever in the Drouin collection or census records that John had a second wife named Mary Delaney; his parents' burial records don't exist in Drouin, either, so I am doubting that they came with John and his two siblings to Canada. Anyone is free to comment on this post. This family moved later to the Georgian Bay and then in 1878 to Chippewa Co. MI John's son Patrick Joseph Lawless (1827-1917) is my great, great grandfather.
