My 2nd G grandfather, Owen McEntee (Note spelling.), was born in 1777 in Currin Parish, Monaghan Co., Ireland, came to the U. S. about 1823, probably coming first to Canada. He is said by relatives to have married in Dutchess Co., NY, about 1833 to Mary Cassidy. Owen worked with his Cassidy relatives in truck gardens on Manhattan and in NJ, moved to MI in 1836 and bought land west of Ann Arbor, at Chelsea. He had six children. I know nothing further of his earlier life in Ireland, tho he bragged he fought in the Irish Rebellion of 1799. The descendants of Owen use the McIntee speling of the name but I have not seen it spelled that way in Ireland. Comments? Earl F. Kisling, San Pablo, CA
