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".
For search engine - spelled NEAGLE on McCabe List
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!
