Ireland to Gloucester Township

New February 18, 2008:

Hi Al,
I noticed this interesting thing while looking at the Gloucester residents' page 
this morning:
Luke BYRNE married 04-10-1848 Mary CAMPBELL Gloucester? 
I believe this is the same Luke Byrne who's listed on the same page, but with the 
Fitzwilliam group:
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
Sex: Male
Age: 48
Place of Birth: IRELAND
Religion: Roman Catholic

Sub-district: Gloucester (E) 
Division: 1

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!
