John McCARTHY and (1) Catherine DAWSON and (2) Bessie (Elizabeth?) STEACEY
County Cork, Ireland to Bytown

September 1, 2005:

Hello Al.
Here is some information on my gg grandparents who came from Cork to Ottawa c. 1839.  
My gg grandfather ran a tailor shop at 37 Queen Street for most of the time until 
he died in 1902.  He had many children but I have included only my direct line in 
the hope that some of his other descendants may recognize the information and get in touch.
Best wishes.
