Michael NOLAN and Mary DALY
County Wexford, Ireland to Gloucester Township
I decided to send Michael Nolan who married Mary Daly (my great
grandparents) separately from the Daly tree so it could go under Nolan.
Michael is a son of William Nolan and Elizabeth Robin (Rowan?) who came from Templeshambo,
Ballindaggin, Co. Wexford to South Gloucester in the 1820's. His brothers were
William and Patrick Nolan who stayed next to the father's land..
Michael Nolan bought and cleared his own lot in Gore Junction. It is
now the Ottawa International Airport , but it is said that the barn from his land
was moved at the time of expropriation to the south end on the east side of the
Bowesville Rd. near the Manotick Station Rd (Mitch Owens Rd.). It stands today
(a corrrugated barn painted green) beside the land containing the, still existing, Original
log cabin of the Nolan family. The log cabin is now somewhat hidden behind
trees, with red trim. (This green barn is not to be confused with the
green barn right
at the corner of Bowesville Rd. and Mitch Owens. Michael's barn is about 2

That's it for now. I have further generations if necesssary.
One question; Does anyone know anything about a James Shanley of Bowesville
married to a Winnifred Dixon? I think they are connected to James McEvoy
and Mary McEvoy O'Meara.
The name "DIXON" appears early in the records of St. Michael's in Huntley, spelled
at first as "DICKSON" (c. 1850) and later as "DIXON". I don't see a Winnifred though.
There are also O'MEARAs there.
