Ireland to Gloucester Township
February 18, 2008:

Luke BYRNE married 04-10-1848 Mary CAMPBELL Gloucester?

BYRNE, Ann MAHER; Luke; Ann, Moylisha, County Wicklow to Gloucester, ON
Luke Byrne married Mary Campbell of Bytown, widow of Owen Brennan, at the Basilica
on 4 Oct 1848. Wit: John Moran and Ann Byrnes. (Owen Brennan died during the
summer of 1847 in Bytown and may have been a famine immigrant, as is Luke Byrne / Byrnes ... Al).
In 1871 Luke Byrne was in Gloucester
Place of Birth: IRELAND
Religion: Roman Catholic
District: RUSSELL (076)
Sub-district: Gloucester (E)
Microfilm reel number: C-10012

It would be interesting if this page number from the 1871 census gave us any clues
about who Luke's neighbours were - Gloucester being a big place!
