Seeking info about James Leonard & Ellen Moon in Ireland
Posted by: Gregg Sutter (ID *****7860) Date: June 17, 2011 at 03:04:06

I am seeking any information about James Leonard and Ellen Moon, the presumptive parents of Michael Leonard and Bridget Gavan who were married in New Orleans in 1859.

The only mention of James and Ellen is on the Archdiocese of New Orleans Certificate of Marriage. On later census forms, Michael Leonard declares Ireland as his country of origin. Michael was born in 1833 or thereabouts.

Michael may have been an orphan sent to the United States during the Great Famine.

I have no county, parish or townland in Ireland.

I've been looking a long time.

Any help from Leonards, even unrelated, might yield valuable clues.

Thank you.
