Slattery Family Genealogy Forum
Hello, I'm searching for information or connections for my Ggggg-grandfather John Slattery who was born in 1765 also in County Tipperary, Ireland.He married Margret "Peg" Sexton who was suppossedly from the area NW of Nenagh, County Tipperary, Ireland.They had a daughter Margaret Mary Slattery who married Michael Meagher. They had a daughter Margaret Meagher who was born in 1834 also in County Tipperary, Ireland. She married John Minogue.They came to America and had a daughter Mary Minogue born September 11, 1861 in Poultney, Vermont USA.She married Michael Canfield who was born in Brandon, Vermont. They had a daughter Agnes Canfield who had TWIN daughters with Thomas Picket. The Twin daughters, Agnes and Agatha who were born May 18, 1915 and were placed up for Adoption in the Father Baker Home near Buffalo, New York. My Grandmother who also raised me was Agatha . She was adopted by an Italian couple Nicola and Pierina Segalla, at 8 months of age , re-named Margaret Rita Segalla and was taken to live in Niagara Falls, New York in the Little Italy neighborhood.She was raised Italian and never even knew that she was adopted and Irish until she was almost grown. She went by the name Rita and married an Italian man , my Grandfather Gennaro "Jerry" John Penque and they did meet and visit her birth family in Rutland, Vermont. She was close to her 1st cousin Mary Rita Dunn Chapleau from Rutland, Vermont and had visited them, through out the years, kept in touch, exchanged pictures, letters and phone calls over the years etc...Her cousin Mary had given her a wonderful rescipie for Irish Stew and also some of their home made Maple Syrup. My Grandmother Rita had 2 children , my mother being the younger of the 2 Geraldine Rita Penque born in Niagara Falls, New York on March 30, 1944..She in turn met my father Augustine Amburgey who had come from Logan County, West Virginia and whose family originally came from the Knott, Letcher, and Perry County , Kentucky and North Carolina areas in the Hollows and they had myself Kim Renee' Amburgey born on January 28, 1964, now Kim Amburgey-Flinn. I have 3 children. I met Edward Albert Hawkins and we had our daughter Dee-Dee Hawkins on May 24, 1980. I later met and married Ralph Leslie Flinn and we had a daughter Vivian Flinn born June 25, 1990 and a son Leslie Flinn born on July 6, 1993 all of which were also born in the Niagara Falls, New York USA area. We have also been searching very hard to find out whatever became of my Grandmother's Twin sister Agnes who has been missing . If she had any children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren etc... as they would be our cousins and we consider them close family.
