Catherine Conlon and Michael Sullivan were listed as godparents on a baptism record, which I have, from Saint Stephen Catholic Church, Indian Creek, Monroe County, Missouri, dated January 16, 1868, for Mary Quinlan [December 15, 1867, Indian Creek, Monroe County, Missouri-December 7, 1907, near Mexico, Audrain County, Missouri]. Mary Quinlan was the daughter of Michael Daniel Quinlan [October 1824, Tipperary, Ireland-August 14, 1904, near Mexico, Audrain County, Missouri] and Rosa McConnell Quinlan [January 1834, Meath, Ireland-January 10, 1901, near Mexico, Missouri]. The Quinlan family moved from Monroe County, Missouri, to Audrain County, Missouri, in the mid-1880s. Mary Quinlan married Robert Hays, on October 4, 1905, in Mexico, Missouri. I have their marriage license. Michael and Rosa Quinlan are buried in Saint Brendan Cemetery, Mexico, Missouri, as are Robert Hays and Mary Quinlan Hays.
I have contacted Saint Stephen for the information, they have.
Does anyone have information on whether Catherine Conlon or Michael Sullivan were related to the Quinlan or McConnell families?
Michael Quinlan's father's name was James Quinlan. But, this James Quinlan remained in Ireland and is not the James Quinlan listed in some Saint Stephen records. Michael Quinlan's mother's maiden name was Mary Martin.
Rosa McConnell Quinlan's father's name was John McConnell. Her mother's maiden name was Gilbert. The Mother's first name may have been Bridget. No proof has been found that John McConnell or his wife came from Meath, Ireland, to the United States, other than a statement in Rosa McConnell Quinlan's 1901 newspaper obituary that "the McConnell's came to Missouri from Ireland in the 1850s."
