Michael FAGAN and Mary COLEMAN
County Wicklow, Ireland, to Goulbourn Township, Ontario, Canada

March 8, 2008:

Hi Al,
I've found a Michael Fagan family from County Wicklow in Goulbourn. Attached is the 
death cert. for Mary Colman Fagan (the notation "spinster" is an error, I think, 
since her son is the informant), giving her place of birth as Wicklow.
Here are the marriages of two of their children:
From St. Philip's, Richmond (Bytown or Bust)
6 May 1851:  Toussant Janvier, son of Pierre Janvier and Callista St. Michael of 
Aylmer, to Rose Fagan, daughter of Michael Fagan and Mary Colman of Goulbourn

22 Nov 1852:  George McNally, son of Andrew McNally deceased and Eliza Wharton, 
to Mary Fagan, daughter of Michael Fagan and Mary Coleman, both of Goulbourn

And attached is the 1851 census for the family, all b. Ireland.
