January 23, 2002: Hi : I was searching for some information on the Killeen's. My Mother was a Killeen from Dunrobin. I am trying to locate the decendants of Dennis Killeen who settled at South March. There are several Killeen's who decendants I cannot trace. Any information on the above Killeen's re-date of birth, date of death etc. would be appreciated. I live in Fallowfield. Ed Brennan - ========== Hi Ed: Thanks for your e-mail. Do you know who Dennis Killeen's wife was? I have several children of a Dennis Killeen and Ellen O'Brien. This Dennis may be related to the Patrick Killeen who came to the Huntley / March area in 1851 from County Tipperary. There also was a John Killeen from King's County, Ireland. John was in this area in 1829. He signed the McCabe List (ML# 52). There are some Killeen's in the cemetery of St. Isadore's Church in South March. Presumably these are your ancestors. Prior to St. Isadore's there are some records of Killeens at St. Michael's in Corkery. I have bits and pieces of stuff on Killeens around my office, but I'm not sure if they are all related or not. Anyway, let me know if Ellen O'Brien was the wife of your Dennis Killeen and I can point you in that direction. ... Al (just down the road in Jockvale).
January 24, 2002 Hi Al: Dennis Killeen who settled at South March had a son Dennis Benjamin who married Ellen O'Brien. He was born in 1827 in March Township and Died in 1914. His brother John Killeen was my Great Grandfather. Must be same couple. Ed =========== Ed: Some of the Killeen family moved to the Pembroke and Renfrew County area. You'll find them by going to Bill Martin's page on Brudenell families. Ida Reed has transcribed these records and they cover a wide area, including Eganville, Killaloe and some parts of the Quebec side (Pontiac County). You have to go through the pages by years on the web site. Alternatively, I have a copy of these records in WordPerfect 8.0 format which can be searched a little more easily. But it's a large file - over 500 pages and more than 2 Megs. I could do look-ups for you.. ... Al
January 29, 2002: > Hi Al: I noticed a Patrick Killeen died 2/20/1895 in Huntley Township. Do you > have any more information on him. Ed Brennan ================== Hi Ed: Here's all that there is on the death of Patrick Killeen: Killeen, Patrick died 2/20/1895 buried 2/22/1895 Age 90 Witnesses: Killeen, John & Killeen, Martin ...

July 7, 2003: Hi Ed, I noticed your inquiry on the Bytown pages. I too am interested in our genealogy and am the great granddaughter of Helena Killeen, daughter of Denis from Dunrobin. Let me know if you are still looking for information. Sharon
August 22, 2003: Hi Sharon: Just noticed your reply. I am still working on the Family Tree and I would be happy to share the information I have with you. My new e-mail address is Ed.
August 27, 2003: Hi Al, Sharon and Ed, Does anyone have a Michael Killeen, married Hannah Donovan, daughter of Randal Donovan and Margaret Flynn? Michael Killeen died before 1865, as John McAuliffe married Hannah (widow Killeen) Feb 23, 1865. John McAuliffe died a few years later as the widow Hanora McAuliffe is listed on the 1871 census for Huntley with four Killeen children, Margaret 13, John 12, Jeremiah 10, Michael 8, and two McAuliffe children, Randle Joseph 5, and Mary Catherine 3. I have quite a bit of information on the McAuliffe's but unfortunately nothing on the Killeen's. Regards, Dorothy
