Michael McDermott and Family

I recently uncovered more about my McDermott line. Michael McDermott (1807-aft 1880) and wife Johanna Donnellan(1814-aft 1870)were born in Ireland. Sometime in the 1830s they migrated to Montreal, Canada. Michael was a farmer and they were Roman Catholic. They had ten known children and stayed in Montreal till after 1861. The marriage and birth records are well-recorded in Quebec via the Drouin Collection.

I lost track of them until I discovered them living in Nebraska in 1870. They lived in Clarksville, Merrick CO, NE.

Are there any descendants of Michael and Johanna? Their two daughters Margaret [my line] and Mary Ann married in Montreal and moved to Boston, MA with their husbands. I wonder about the eight sons and where they ended up. I see that a few of them were in NE.

I'd love to know what happened to Patrick, Peter, Michael Jr, James, John, Thomas, Owen and Frank.

Does anyone know where in Ireland Michael Sr came from? I can't find any graves listing the McDermotts.

Thanks in advance.
