Bernard QUINN

Sue:
The Quinn farms were in Nepean Township, just to the North-west of Manotick.

B. Quinn had 25 acres on an island. Adjacent to the island, on the mainland,
is a John Quinn (son maybe) with 75 acres. Connected to this is another 100
acres belonging to B. Quinn. Two hundred acres in total. The river is not
wide at that point. You could throw a stone across.

It would probably help if you can send me the childrens' names (of Bernard
Quinn). Then I can check the cemetery lists, etc.

Sue: Here's the mailing address for St. Phillip's: St. Phillip's Roman Catholic Church Box 59 Richmond, Ontario Canada K0A 2Z0 The telephone number is (613) 838-2314. I also spoke to a Mr. George Mears who is in charge of the cemetery. He believes that the old church records are stored on microfilm at the National Archives. The lady at the church office said that they have some birth/marriage/death records, at the church, going back to the 1830's. St. Phillip's was the first Roman Catholic church in the area. Many pioneers are buried there. Later generations were usually buried at cemeteries closer to their homes, as newer churches were built in the 1850's and 1860's. ... Al
January 25, 2002: In the listings for deaths in Huntley Township, I came across the name of Margaret Quinn who died in 1876. It is possible that this is my great-grandmother, and I would like to know if there is any more information that you could give me. My great-grandfather, Bernard Quinn died in 1899, and is buried in St. Phillips in Fallowfield, so I thought that perhaps this was a connection. Her maiden name was Margaret Keane. (Kane / Cain) Thank you for any information. Patricia Hayes e-mail: patty375@suite224.net ================ Patricia: There are four early churches for which the records overlap in this area: 1. Notre Dame in Bytown - served the canal workers from about 1826 2. St.Phillip's in Richmond served the military settlers at Richmond 3. St. Patrick's at Fallowfield served early pioneers in western Nepean Township 4. St. Michael's at Corkery (Huntley Township) served the Peter Robinson settlers from 1823 Different records of many families are in all four churches. The Margaret Quinn you asked about in your e-mail died as an infant (6 days old) in 1876. She was the daughter of John Quinn and Margaret McGrath. However, here's something: (also from St. Michael's, Huntley) Quinn, William son of Quinn, Bernard and Kane, Margaret farmer of Richmond married on 1/16/1883 Mannion, Elizabeth daughter of Manion, Patrick & Lindsay, Catherine Godparents were McCarthy, Michael & Mannion, Catherine no relation & sister of bride The communities were all inter-connected. The Manions and Kennedy's were two of the first families to move from Richmond to Huntley, around 1820, preceding the Peter Robinson wave of 1823. ... Al
October 15, 2003: Hello: I have been researching John J Quinn who I believe was in Huntley Ontario circa 1870’s. My wife is the 2nd Great Granddaughter to a John and Margaret Quinn. This sounds almost identical to the Quinns that you have referenced on your web site. I was wondering if we might be able to exchange information to see if there is a connection between your Quinns and my wife’s. Hope to hear from you soon!

October 17, 2003: Hi Al Thank you very much!, Certainly not a problem posting the info. As a matter of fact I can send a Family Group report or tree, actually any format you think would be helpful created on Family tree maker. I was wondering if there is anyway of getting a copy of your John and Margaret reference. I am almost 100% sure these are my Quinn’s as our family history also references Margaret maiden name as McGrath and losing a child named Margaret at 6 days old, although we have her dieing around 1862 and buried on the farmstead. It may be interesting that beside poor land maybe the death of this child was the catalyst for their emigration to North Dakota in 1877-1878. Once again hope to hear from you soon!
