I'm researching the family of Edmund McEvoy and Catherine Kennedy from Kyle, Freshford Catholic Parish, Kilkenny, Ireland. I've found several of their children on the parish register, but it has large "holes" and I'm struggling to discover who Edmund and Catherine's parents are. I believe Edmund's brother is Thomas McEvoy who married Margaret Marshall.
Edmund and Catherine came to Canada sometime after 1818 and before 1834. They settled in St. Scholastique, Deux Montagnes, Quebec (where Edmund died in 1834) and then went to Osgoode, Carleton, Ontario. My ancestors then settled in Palo Alto County, Iowa. I am a descendant of Edward Patrick McEvoy (grandson of Edmund) and Catherine Conway.
I have lots of info from Edmund & Catherine on down, but I hope to be able to find out who THEIR parents and grandparents are. If you have any clues, please post a follow-up! Thanks!
