Hi Al Lewis,
I saw the tree on "Bytown or Bust" I'm descended as follows:
Esther Manion + Michael Meehan
son John Meehan + Kitty O'Connell
dau. Anna Elizabeth Meehan + John J. Grace
son Wilfrid Michael Grace + Muriel Close
son Dalton Grace + Phyllis McBurnie
(... 2 more generations)
I would love any information on this family that you have.
Also, I have the "Meehan-Grace-O'Connell-Devine" book by Kathleen M. Meehan (1956)
which lists the descendants of John & Kitty Meehan. Did you know that Patrick and
John's other siblings were Lawrence, Andrew, Edward, Michael, Esther, Ellen, Margaret & Mary?
Look forward to hearing from you!

Hi Al, please change our email to email@example.com
and Hi Kelly, please note above address change (I'm not sure when you posted
your response on the Bytown site), but yes, our Michael travelled with his
brother John on the Hebe in 1823 and I would love to know what you have on them.

Great to hear from you. Yes you may use the material. I received an email from Frances a little while ago discussing
her ancestors who emigrated from Churchtown, Cork less than thirty miles from Kilcoran. I will forward to you
all her email and my replies to her which includes a copy of my family history up to the time my ancestors went
from Kilcoran to Castletownroche, County Cork. These will be in several emails. It is possible Ted Meehan has
some more info on the links between the Kilcoran Meehans of 1766 and the Peter Robinson emigrant Meehans. All the best
(more to post from Bob Meehan... Al)
