Michael ROONEY and Johanna O'CONNELL / O'CONNEL

Dear Al,
 
Here is the tree of Michael Rooney and Johanna O'Connel(l) who settled in 
Twin Elm, Ontario.   The parents of Michael were Daniel Rooney and his first 
wife Catherine.  I'm not sure if Daniel ever came to Canada himself.  

 New Information posted on September 20, 2010:
 
**Concerning Michael Rooney who married Johanna O'Connell and Bernard Rooney who married Sarah McCarthy. 
 I wish to CORRECT the original assumption that Bernard and Michael were half-brothers.   This has 
 now been proven incorrect. From the 1861 census it is now known that the sons of DANIEL ROONEY
 (b. c1788 in Kilkeel, County Down) and his wife Rose LARKIN (b c 1789 County Down) farming at North Gower 
in 1851, were
1. WILLIAM Rooney who married Mary McVee / McVeigh at Chapeau, Quebec
2.  JOHN Rooney who married Anne Brennan of South Gloucester (later widowed) and  who later moved 
 to South Gloucester( his son John married Catherine McMorrow / Morrow) 
3. BERNARD Rooney married to Sarah Jane McCarthy of Goulbourn Township who later farmed in Fallowfield.  
*This now Proves the connection between the  Rooneys of Fallowfield and South Gloucester.

 However, MICHAEL Rooney of Twin Elm, Nepean married to  Johanna O'Connell was born in Country Leitrim, Ireland and 
 although he may be some relation to Bernard, John and 
 William he is NOT a Half Brother and NOT a son of Daniel Rooney of North Gower. His mother may be the 
 Catherine Rooney who is living with Michael "RONEY" in Twin Elm at age 66 in 1861. 
No further info is yet known on the parentage of Michael. **
