Patrick DERVIN and Catherine DOOLEY
(Patrick was from County Roscommon)
also, the DUBREUILLE / DUBROY pioneer family in Nepean

July 9, 2003:

Hello My name is Francis Dervin. I was born and raised in the Fallowfield - Richmond area. 
I remember well the Fogarty family of St Patrick's parish; George, Simon, 
Andrew, RoseAnn, Mary (Minnie) and Katie. Also two of my father's brothers married 
Fogarty girls from that area.Patrick Dervin married a Fogarty girl(a sister of Terrence) 
circa 1885 and moved to San Francisco where he was a haberdasher. John Dervin 
(referenced earlier) Muriel's father married Rose Fogarty who lived to ripe age of 
105 years. I would love to find more with respect to Patrick Dervin's descendants 
in San Francisco. He was said to have had five girls, so the Dervin name expired.

There are other Dervins on the William Kennedy page. 22 January 1865 at St. Philip's, Richmond: Baptism of William, born 13 December last of the lawful marriage of Patrick Dervin and Catharine Dooley. The sponsors were John Leamy / Learny and Margaret Dooley.

William died in 1937
July 11, 2003: Hello Al. Pleased to receive your e-mail. I of course am a grandson of Patrick Dervin (aka Dervian) and Catherine Dooley. Patrick Dervin came from County Roscommon. My best knowledge is that he was born 1830 and came to Canada in 1854. A younger brother James came out in 1848 and married Ellen Kennedy also from Ireland. However their children died during the diptheria epidemic and thus there are no descents. I was born and raised on the Dooley homestead (Richmond Road) in fact I still own a part of that Lot. My information on the Dooley's is complete with the exception of Ellen Dooley (Catherine's sister). Information I have is that she married Moses Thibideau (see below ... Al) of Ottawa, but I have been unable to find any descendants or any other information. I would be terribly pleased if you might know of anybody who might have any knowledge of her. The spelling of Thibideau may not be accurate. My father Martin Dervin died in 1936 so I dont recall much information from that source. Thanks again fot replying. _____________________________ also posted on July 11, 2003: 2 January 1849, Baptism of Moses, born 27 December 1848 of the lawful marriage of Jules (or Julien) Thibodeau and Zepherine Dubreuille. The sponsors were Hyacinthe Dubreuille & Emilia Fournier. (Dubreuille later became DuBroy) _____________________________ Good Morning Mr. Dervin: Thanks for your latest e-mail. I had a look through the registers of St. Philips at Richmond. There are lots of Dooley's recorded there. I'll see if I can find Ellen. I've also located the Dooley and Dervin farms on the 1879 Nepean map. There were two Dervin farms (spelled DARVAN on the map) - one owned by Patrick and another, next door, owned by James. I think that the Dooley family may be related to my Burns ancestors in Osgoode. Here's the first mention of the Dooley family at St. Philip's. 4 December 1836, Baptism of Margaret, born 14 November 1836, legitimate daughter of Thomas Dooley and Catharine Quinn. The sponsors were Ambrose Madden and Jane Hart. Do you know where these Dooley's came from in Ireland? (see Thomas DOOLEY) ... Al

May 25, 2008: I saw your emails on the internet and I am the great granddaughter to Mary Ellen Dunn (Dubreuille) and I currently live in Oregon, USA. Mary Ellen Dunn (maiden name Dubreuille) is the daughter of Charles and Mary Ann (Tierney) from Nepean. She died in 1892 and is now buried in Corvallis Oregon at Mt. Union Cemetary next to my Great Grandfather. She married my Great Grandfather James Warren Dunn who was later killed in the line of duty in 1904 as a Corvallis Oregon Sheriff. Mary Ellen and James had three children together. I have been trying to reseach the Dubreulle side of the family but could not find any information. One final note - Charles and an Eliza Dubreuille (spelled as DuBruille) are buried next to James and Mary Ellen Dunn in Mt. Union Cememtary as well. There are also two children of Margaret Ann buried as well. Let me know if you have a history or need additional information. Sandra _______________________ Hi Sandra: Thanks for your e-mail regarding your Dubreuille ancestors. The Dubreuille family was one of the early French Canadian families to settle among the Irish Catholic families who pioneered in the Richmond / Fallowfield area of what is now the City of Ottawa, Canada. Some of the 21st century descendants here now spell their surname as "". There are a lot of records for this family in the registers of St. Philip's RC Church in Richmond. They married into many of the early families in this area. Our search engine near the top of our main page at www.bytown.net will probably lead to other references to the Dubreuilles. Is it OK with you if I add your e-mail to our web site as a contact for other family researchers? Please let me know. You will probably be hearing from other researchers of your family. Thanks again for this. ... Al Lewis
New June 16, 2009: Hi Al, Long time no write. Thought I'd share with you the results of my good fortune last Friday -- as is my usual routine I checked Mary Crandall's Ontario Marriage Register transcriptions and a recent add to it was the marriage of Joseph H s/o Anthony and Ellen Bird whose 1866 marriage is in the St Phillips register. Anyway Joseph's residence was given as Cleveland Ohio USA so I thought I'd check for a death record ... Ohio death registers are indexed on the Familysearch pilot site with access to the image for free. To my surprise and delight Joseph and a whole slew of other /Du Broys showed up. Almost all of them were the descendents of Antoine and Amelia Fournier of Richmond and the others of Louis and Ellen O'Connnel of Nepean. As an added bonus the obits and or cemetery records for many of them were listed in the Cleveland Necrology which you can access from the links from here http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ohcuyah2/index.html Also in Cleveland at this time were some the the Leblanc cousins -- sons of Amelia's sister Margaret (Fournier) Leblanc. So here is an outline tree for this family; hopefully this will be helpful to others searching for them; I have chosen to use for most of these folks because it is the most frequently used variation.
