Yes Bridget Dooley daughter of Thomas Dooley and Catherine Quinn married a Burns
(Michael I think). Thomas Dooley was married twice. Firstly to Catherine Quinn with
five surviving children all girls. After Catherine's death he married Mary Coughlan / Coughlin
and they had four more surviving children, again all girls. So there are no male
descendants from Thomas Dooley. If the Norma Dooley you refer to is still living
she may be a source of information, though she would not be a direct descendant of Thomas.

I have been doing family research on the Thibedeau family, and saw your entries when
I looked up Zepherine Thibedeau on the internet. The information I have is:
Jule Thibe(o)deau and Zepherine (Nubois?) Dubreuille had a son Mose born Dec. 1847
in Canada. He married Ann/Helen/Ellen Doulet / Doulay / Dooley in the early 1870's,
and had a daughter named Mary. Ann/Helen/Ellen either died or got divorced, and Mose
then married Kate McDonald, and moved to Shell Lake Wisconsin, USA, in 1880. Mose's
daughter Mary was adopted by his sister Mary and her husband Octave Saucier, and she
grew up in Rice Lake Wisconsin. She married George McCluskey. They had a son Milton,
who is my grandfather. My names and dates are a little bit different than yours, but
too similar to not be the same people. Please let me know what you think.
I am trying to find the names of Jule Thibedeau's parents, if you have any info please
let me know. I'm looking forward to hearing from you,

While researching family history I read your entry on George McCluskey.
George is my ggrandfather's brother. Contact me if you are interested in
sharing family history. I have some information on the Thibedeau family
that I found while researching McCluskey history.
