Yes, 'my' Bernard Rooney was born near Lisburn and baptized on Oct.22, 1848 the son of Edward Rooney and Sabina Davis and grandson of Lt. Bernard Rooney and Jane Legat. 'my' Bernard married Dec.23, 1870 Elizabeth Best Harrison. She was born on July 15, 1847 daughter of Joshua Harrison and Elizabeth Leatham. According to tradition, the famiy came to Champaign Co. Ohio because Elizabeth (Bernards wife) had a cousin living there named James Walker. They subsequently moved to Nebraska for 6 yrs. then to Oklahoma, returning to Nebraska. In 1894 they moved to Texas returning to Ohio the same year.
