March 26, 2004: Hello: Sherry Cox and I are making an attempt at getting a re-start on our family genealogy. Just from reading your brief message I can see you have a lot of information that I don't and I would really love to have a copy of what you have. My great-grandfather William Stevenson Russell was married to Leona Elizabeth Smith Leona was the daughter of Peter W. Smith and Mary Marie Hannegan who was the daughter of Daniel Hannegan and Catherine (Kitty) Carroll. Beyond Leona we have little information but names. We have no information on Peter W. Smith. The information we have on Mary is: born 15 January 1835 in Carleton, Ontario; died 31 December 1924 in Towner, North Dakota. The information on Daniel is a speculative birthdate of about 1787, Ireland; and on his wife Catherine a speculative birthdate of about 1805 in Ireland. I wish I could be more helpful to you, but we seem to have the same goal at least. I will gladly send you any information I have that you might be interested in - just let me know if you need anything. I hope you will be willing to send to me the information you have on the family of Daniel and Catherine - I am very excited to hear that you have such exciting information. Do you have any pictures of any of the children. As you can imagine I would love to get a picture of my great-great grandmother Marie Marie Hannegan. Hope to hear from you. Diane Bland
October 30, 2008: It seems I have been asleep at the switch. I happened upon emails about the Hannegan - Logue connections, and caused me to go back to check my records. It appears that there were two Hannegan girls that married into the Logue family. Margaret Hannegan was married to William Logue abt 1839 in Ireland immigrating into Canada between 1840 and 1844 when their son William was born in Carleton County, Canada West. And younger sister, Catherine Hannegan was married to Robert Logue, 29 Dec 1862 in Twin Spring, Winnesheik, Iowa, USA. Robert was the son of Patrick Logue and Margaret (Magee??). Catherine later married Lawrence Gannon about 1868 in New Oregon, Howard County, Iowa. Would love to correspond with anyone on this line, in hopes of answering our mutual questions. Regards, ...

November 5, 2008: Good morning, all: Just a quick line to thank the organizers from Library and Archives Canada for the Irish Studies Symposium which took place on Monday and Tuesday. It was a terrific conference! Thanks also to ancestry.ca for their contribution as well. And thanks to Anne Burgess for the following information regarding Daniel Hannigan and his wife Catherine. Anne is very interested in emigrants from County Wicklow to Canada in the 19th century. ... Al _____________________ Hi Al, I was looking for possible Wicklow settlers in 1851 Marlborough, and came upon this Daniel Hannigan and wife Catherine. I wondered if he was the one you're discussing at www.bytown.net/hannigan.htm. Daniel Hannigan, Marlborough Township, 1851 Census Census image source: ancestry.ca ... Anne Burgess
October 21, 2009: I've just reread Alicemae Abbott's post dated October 30, 2008 regarding the Hannegan-Logue connection. Alicemae mentions that Catherine Hannegan married Robert J. Logue, son of my g-g- grandfather Patrick Logue and my g-g grandmother Margaret Magee. That is incorrect. Robert J. Logue's mother was Patrick's presumed first wife, Susan McCafferty. Susan is buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, Kemptville, Ontario, although her headstone no longer exists. I've also learned from Robert J. Logue's American Civil War pension file that he was born at sea in 1842, which would have been the year of emigration from Ireland to Canada. Robert's brother John C. Logue also served in the Civil War and his pension file indicates that the family was living in County Derry before they emigrated. ... Lynn M. Logue
