July 15, 2004: Hi Bob My name is Ernie Kilroe. My GGGreat Uncle John Kilroe Married Mary Delaney [1855] daughter of Daniel Delaney and Catherine Fahey. So we are cousins. I have the census records for the Delaneys -1841-1851-1861-1871-1881- Also some records of John and Mary, I lose track of them in the 1930's in the USA. (Some went to Michigan in the 1920's) Do you need this info??? Ernie
March 29, 2005: Hi Al, I think I must have sent you info a long time ago to post on your site... but it's been a long time. I stumbled on your Delaney page and realized my email address changed years ago! If you'd like to update it, that would be great. Someone named Ernie had posted a response last July, so I just emailed him also. Thanks, Bob Delaney New e-mail address for Bob Delaney: bob@delaneydesign.com

April 6, 2007: 1 Daniel Delaney + Catherine Fahey from Roscrea, Tipperary, Ireland 2 Patrick Delaney b. 1833 Ireland + Winnifred Davis b. 1838 Ireland 3 Patrick Delaney b. 1877 Ontario + Alice Anderson b. 1894 Manitoba 4 Daughter – living, born in Alberta (only child) 5 Daughter – living, born in British Columbia (1 of 3 children) 6 Daughter + Son plus (2 more children from generation #5) I am the 5th generation and have just begun researching my Delaney and Davis branches of my family tree. My grandmother Alice told me what she knew of the Delaney and Davis family tree back in the 1970’s and I had made notes but never went any farther with the information. As you can see the generations in my family continued to move west. I am wondering if Daniel and Catherine Delaney came to Canada to join family already here? I noticed in the 1851 census that Catherine Fahey was not with her family and I presume had died. I also notice that her two youngest children were only going to be 4 and 5 yrs. on their next birthdays. So she must have died recently and I was wondering when and what cemetery she and her husband Daniel were buried at? There, you have another branch of the Delaney/Davis family tree! ... Denise ____________________________ Thank you Al, Ernie and Bob for your responses to my email. Thank you Ernie for the photo of the head stone (St. Patrick's Cemetery, Fallowfield) for Winnifred Davis and Patrick Delaney. It looks fairly new, I wonder if it is a replacement.

August 15, 2012: Hi! I am the granddaughter of Daniel Delaney (married to Julia Watters). Daniel was the 1st son of Patrick Delaney and Winifred Davis. My grandfather brought his family to Deroit, Michigan, USA in the early 1920's, and all are now deceased. I am trying to trace the family in Canada. I have a few names of relatives living in the Ottawa area in the 1950's and 1960's. While they may now be all deceased, I would love to find any of their families that I could connect up with. If any of you can help me, I would be ever so grateful. I am traveling to Ottawa in August, 2012 to try to research in the Fallowfield cemetery. Thank you so much for any help!

August 21, 2012: Since the above e-mail was posted on August 15, 2012, Carolyn and her friends, Phyllis, Ray and Lisa, have visited the Jockvale area of Nepean and we took a trip to St. Patrick's Church at Fallowfield, St. Philip's Church at Richmond and finally, we located the original Delaney farms. The farms are located on the Jockvale Road and include the Stonebridge Golf Course. The eastern portion of the farms are located on Prince of Wales Drive where the Jack May GM Dealership is located. Behind Jack May is Maple Hill which is marked with a street sign on Prince of Wales Drive today. The Delaney ancestral farms were located in the Jockvale area of today's Barrhaven. A very satisfying day trip! The next day, Taylor Kennedy took up the gauntlet and provided a tremendous amount of original documentation for the pioneer Delaney family - church records beginning in 1834, census records beginning in 1842, trans-border travel documents showing the migration of Carolyn's family to Michigan in 1922, etc. A wealth of family history information. Thanks again, Taylor! It will take me a couple of days to update this web page, but here is a beginning: From Taylor: After Joseph Emmett was born they moved to Michigan. Daniel worked for the city on the water board and died in 1930ish. I believe both Daniel and his son Patrick went across Dec 1923 BUT I think it is Dec 1922 because Julia and the children followed in July 1923. She died in 1954. I can pull some documents if you want Taylor __________________________________ Here they are Descendants of Daniel Delaney Generation No. 1 1.

Hi Al I have copied the 1851 census (below) of Daniel Delaney and took the liberty of inserting the actual baptism / birth dates. (I have found and saved all baptisms). All the children were baptized in Notre Dame Basilica in Ottawa except for Thomas Delaney and Mathew Delaney as they were baptized in Richmond at St. Philip's. I would say the Delaney's arrived in Carleton County around 1834 and so I will look in the 1841 census for data. Mathew was the last child born in 1848 and Catherine Fahey (mother) may have died in that child birth or shortly after as Daniel is a widow in 1851. He married Hanora Driscoll in 1853. Daniel Delaney Sr. died and was buried in St. Patrick's of Fallowfield on 13th September 1884. I assume his wife Catherine Fahey is also there though no legible tombstone reflects their names. Finally you can see at the top of the page, Winifred Davis daughter of Michael Davis and Catherine Howe, who would be Patrick Delaney's wife. Beside the Delaney's are the Kilroes, son John who married Mary Delaney. I can just send the actual baptism or the entire page. Let me know if your contact would desire these. After Catherine Fahey's death, Daniel Delaney married Hannah Driscoll at St. Patrick's Church, Fallowfield: Source: DROUIN Records at ancestry.ca Daniel Delaney marries Hanora Driscoll Take care ...

Taylor _______________________ Note: Taylor has done a lot of work on this and I still have more material from him to upload to this web page. I'm waiting for Carolyn to get back to us. ... Al __________________________ New August 24, 2012: And here's Carolyn: Hi, Al, Taylor and Grace, Our trip home was uneventful and I have been busy entering so much information that we gathered in our short trip to Canada. I am so grateful for all the help you gave us when we met, as well as the info that you and your friend, Taylor, have sent. It will keep me busy for a while as I get it organized in all the right places. We are going to our cottage this weekend in the Irish Hills and I will gather some info to mail to you. Again, thank you for all your help. I hope to make a return trip to Fallowfield, etc. again one day. Gratefully, Carolyn __________________________ More from Taylor: AN EXERPT FROM THE KENNEDY STORY by Desmond Kennedy : Grandma Kennedy (Margaret Davis) remained in Vancouver until 1925. Then she returned east to stay, a few months after my youngest sister, Betty was born. She did not want to die in the West, she said. S he spent 7 more happy years with us before she died in September, 1932, at the age of 86. Even in later years, she was an impressive figure in any company, tall (over six feet) and erect, dignified and well spoken. I hope this gives you an idea of your great grandmother Winnifred Davis. Margaret Davis Kennedy This is her younger sister Ann Margaret Kennedy nee Davis. A note of interest, their mother (Catherine Howe) died in 1866 and their father Michael Davis remarried to Margaret Welsh / Walsh in 1872 Taylor
