    I have information on the marriage of Mary Grace and James Daley.  The marriage took place on January 8th 1840. I would like to know the ages of the couple and the parents names. The copy that I have was faded and hard to read. The record was a photo from a church record but did not name the church.  I have a Grace and Daley family that settled in Praire Springs Township in Iowa in the late 1850's.  I am wondering why there was an immigration to Iowa during  that time period after being in Canada for a considerable time.
     I also have information to share of the Daley family in Iowa.   Tarses 99

I have just been reading this thread as I'm a new member.  The original question relates to my great great grandfather, Gregory Forrester, who I'm told anecdotally was from either County Armagh or County Wexford in Ireland, born around 1793.  I can't seem to find any mention of him in records here in Quebec of his marriage to Mary Cowan.  It may have taken place in Montreal, before he settled in St. Columban, or even in Ireland, meaning he and Mary would have emigrated to Quebec already married.  I suspect the latter, as I have record of two other children I believe were born in Ireland (from census information).

Photo from Claude Bourguignon of the Shea Bridge and the back of the Mooney farm with its wooden silo on the North River Road in 1943. Photo by Emile Laurence. The Mooneys are in my family tree. My second great grandmother was Ellen Mooney, daughter of one of the original St. Columban settlers.

Last week, Ken Neil and I were able to pick up the completed St. Columban plaque and all the hardware necessary for the installation. It is now stored at my location on Notre Dame Street. Although perhaps a little hard to see in the image, it is terrific! – looks great! Now we just have to wait for the Spring to install it

Hi Herve,
I am still not sure about Thomas Nelson vs. George R. O'K. Collins.  Could this be two people?  More research required!

Yes I am interested !

The document shows the burial of Thomas Nelson 26 aug. 1919, I looked at the record, is he in fact Joseph George Ruben O'Keilly Collins AKA Neilson baptized in Saint Patrick in 26 june 1893 ?

Hello Herve,
I am a great-great-granddaughter of Timothy Collins, descended from his eldest child Mary Elizabeth Collins.

The Canadian census of 1861 and 1871 lists the Collins family in St Colomban. 
In the 1891 census  Timothy & his wife live with daughter Mary Elizabeth who was married to Robert John Birch (in the census it's mis-spelled as Berch) .  They are living in Hochelaga district, Cote St Antoine sub-district. One of Mary Eliz.'s children - Olivia Gertrude b. 1883 - was my grand-mother.

I have attached some files of my research, hope that they might be useful to you. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions!

Elaine Paul

I apologize for not replying to your post, I did not see your message. I have some questions and I worked a lot on the descendants of Timothy Collins !

A little 6 minute YouTube video about Montreal districts of Point St. Charles; Griffintown and Goose Village that might be of interest...
