In Reply to: JOHN TAYS (TEASE) AND NANCY STOREY 1800's IRELAND by Eloise Dalrymple of 92

My great grandmother was Jane Teas,(married Dougal Clarke)daughter of Samuel T... of Conwall, Co. Donegal, Ireland near Letterkenny. Jane had sisters and brothers, William,Noble, John, Moses, Samuel,James and 4 others.of which I do not have the names. Samuel T. md Miss Noble of Loug Swilly. He was born 1760-79 time frame. I AM sure this will be the same famiy. Jane and Dougalls son, my great grandfather, William John Clarke, came to the US in 1839, went up the Mississippi to Illinois as did many of the Donegal, Fermanagh area familes. In 1849 he came by wagon and horseback to Calif. for the gold rush. Later his brother Noble came, as well as two sisters, Catherine md John Bourgoyne in Ireland in 1849 at Raphoe,MannorCunningham, Co Donegal and MAragaret.I am sure this is the same family. What fun to find someone interested in the same family. When in Ireland I was one of the old Teas homes, now not used, but so well built of stone,now covered in Ivy. Hope to hear from you. Marilyn in Calif.
