John Toole/Mary Manion or Madigan, Ireland > NY > MI

I am a descendant of John Toole, who appears in the 1860 Census in Groveland, Livingston Co, NY with his wife, Mary, and daughters Margaret, Ellen and Mary, ages 4, 2, and 1, respectively. By 1870, the family had relocated permanently to Mt. Morris, Genesee Co, MI. My great-grandfather, David John O'Toole (he replaced the "O"), was born to John and Mary at the family homestead in Mt. Morris, MI.

According to family oral tradition, John and Mary were born in County Cork, Ireland, he in 1834 and she in 1833. Their tombstones corroborate the birth years. I have no other information on Mary, other than family speculation that her maiden name was either Manion or Madigan. I am told, however, that John arrived in the United States from County Cork at 7 years of age. I do not have names for anyone in his birth family and, with such scant information, I have been unable to determine where he lived between 1841 and 1870.

I would be very grateful for any information about either John or Mary, however insignificant it may seem, and would be happy to share what I have.

Thanks in advance,
