My Nagles were Peter Robinson settlers who moved from Ireland (Rathcormac, near Fermoy as I understand it) in 1823. They initially settled with the Robinson group near present day Almonte, Ontario. Head of the family was Garrett Nagle. Clearly he would likely have had brothers and sisters in Ireland, but thus far we've been unable to to determine who. I'm afraid I haven't anything that would connect him to your Mary Elizabeth. Elizabeth does not seem to figure as a name for girls in the family. My reason for asking about Rock Forest was the number of times that place name shows up in subsequent generations... who named farms in Quebec, and British Columbia "Rock Forest".
Heather: I've also been doing some work on Nagles who go back to Co. Cork and the Blackwater region. My ggggrandfather Garrett Nagle and family emigrated from that area in 1823 to Lanark, Co. Ontario Canada. The name Rock Forest comes up a number of times, as different sons named their locations so. As well, one of the families spent considerable time at St. Hyacinthe. I'd be interested in sharing information with you! Patrick Nagle
