Dwyer & Elliott Families - Kecarm - 11-30-2020

So glad this site is back up and running.

I am the great, great granddaughter of Michael Dwyer and Anne Elliott; great granddaughter of their oldest daughter Mary Agnes Dwyer (later Wallace). They went from St. Columban to Montreal and then to Chicago where they arrived around 1865. Michael & Anne later went to Hobart, IN. Also, some of the family ended up in the Denver, CO area.

I would love to find out why they picked Chicago, as none of their immediate family seemed to be there. I'm also trying to figure out how people would have traveled from St. Columban to Chicago in those days.

I have been researching these families for a while now. Happy to share/recieve information about this family and their offspring.
