Hi Al,
        I saw on the website that the photo of Patrick Nash and wife Margaret Blanchfield
and saw the wording thanking me. I was wondering if you could give credit to Gail Watters
from Ottawa. She sent that photo to me last year. I hate to take credit from someone else
feeling that people sending history will not send anything else when they are not given credit
for their work and research. I'm sure you understand.
Thanks and keep up the great work,
Patrick Nash and Margaret Blanchfield Patrick Nash and Margaret Blanchfield

October 21, 2002: Thanks to Joy for the following: Anyone know if Margaret Blanchfield is the sister of John (who married Ellen Hickey) and Patrick Blanchfield of Osgoode? Joy Patrick Nash and Margaret Blanchfield Patrick Nash 1798-1882 born Kilkenny married Margaret Blanchfield 1801-1886 born County Tipperary, Ireland . Patrick and Margaret arrived in Canada from Ireland around 1831. With them came their three children Mary Ann, James and John. Also Richard GRACE born 1829 came to Canada with the Nash family. He is not related to Patrick Nash. The Nash family settled in Gloucester, S1/2 lot 17 Broken Front. next on N1/2 lot 17 was Richard Tighe Jr.

January 14, 2003: Re: PATRICK NASH & MARGARET BLANCHFIELD While trying to find the history of the Nash name I found this site and was delighted as this couple was my husband’s gr-gr-grandparents. In the article "Thanks to Joy for the following: Anyone know....." etc. I went through the listing of children and came to child # (8) John Richard Nash b.1840 and his child # (iv) Bridget 1869-1906 m. to Hugh Watters. Further down child # (10) Patrick Nash Jr. m. Elizabeth Cangley (b. 1845), and their child # (ii) Bridget b.1871 m. Walter ? This Bridget (b. 1871/72), is the one who m. Hugh Waters (b. 6 Jun 1855), and they are my husband's grandparents. I have a copy of their marriage record and their photograph. The July 1, 1992 Ottawa Citizen carried a special section entitled '˜Monday Morning Ottawa Citizen, July 1, 1867' and there I found the marriage of Patrick, youngest son of Patrick Nash, Esq. Gloucester, to Eliza Jane, daughter of Mr. Cangley, Osgoode - on June 26, 1867. I could hardly believe my good fortune. Bridget Nash Waters d. 13 Jan. 1906 Æ 34 years after the death of her 13 year old son, Harry. In the spring of 1992, my husband and I received a newspaper write-up from Monsignor Paul Baxter from St. Patrick's Church in Fallowfield where the write-up states in part: '˜The late Mrs. Waters was 34 years of age, a daughter of Mr. Patrick Nash of Leamy Lake. Besides her husband and four children, the eldest 10 years, the youngest, four, she leaves five sisters and two brothers. The sisters are Mrs. O'Brien, wife of James Brien. of the Ottawa Police Force: Mrs. Dolan, wife of Mr. Charles Dolan, of the Ottawa Fire Department; Mrs. William Fleury, of Kingsmere, Quebec; Misses Gertie and Lena Nash, of Ottawa. The brothers are Thomas Nash, of Winnipeg, Manitoba; and Patrick Nash, of Leamy's Lake, Quebec.' My husband and I went to Leamy's Lake and found Elizabeth Cangley epouse de Patrick Nash had d. Mardi 19 Decembre , age 47 and is bur. Notre Dame Cemetery, Gatineau-Hull, Que, with no headstone. Patrick is bur. Notre Dame Cemetery, Montreal Rd, Ottawa, Section Lot 345, no stone. Two documents were mailed to me by the staff from both cemeteries. Now back to that child number (10): Patrick Nash (b.1843)'s dau. (iii) Henrietta (Nettie) b.1873 was m. to William Fleury, Kingsmere, Que. They had a son named Joseph and another son named Archibald, who became Father Fleury, a Missionary Priest, who went to work with the Indians. That's all for now and hope this is of some help. I am able to fill in many empty spaces. I had contacted the Church at Enniskerry and the priest told me that I would have to pay so much per hour for someone to look through the records because I wouldn't be allowed to do my own searching (see e-mail below from Jane and Jim Blanchfield, dated May 14, 2003 ... Al). I would appreciate hearing back from you. Thanks much. - Gail Watters
January 15, 2003: Hi Gail Good to hear from you. Your information is very interesting and helpful. Thank you. Anna Nash (Patrick Nash and Margaret Blanchfield) and Richard Tighe are my Great Grandparents. Their daughter Annie Tighe and Edward Brazeau are my Grandparents. Anna Nash Tighe and Patrick Nash Jr are brother and sister. I will look through my records and see if there are any pictures etc. that might be of interest to you. Will get back to you tomorrow. Joy _______________________________ also posted January 15, 2003: Hi Gail I'm back. It is very interesting that Bridget (Patrick Nash and Elizabeth Cangley) Nash is the one that married Hugh Waters. My information came from St Patrick's Records at the Ottawa Archives but then mistakes happen. Someone may have put the wrong parents names on the record. Yours must be the correct one and I will change my records. The children I have listed for Patrick and Elizabeth (Cangley) Nash are : (1) Patrick Henry 1893-1906 .....Patrick Henry was killed by a horse. His age was 12 years and 9 months. Bridget, his mother died 2 days later.... (2) Kathryn (Katie)... (3) Hilda born 1898 married Tom Ready 1897-1973...(4) Martin married Claudia Tennant. Do you have the same information? Hugh Waters is the son of Martin Waters and ? O'Malley . They came from Tipperary and settled in the Jockvale area. After his wife Bridget died, Hugh Waters married Anastasia Nolan 1862-1938. The following information I believe, is taken from the book Kars on the Rideau :...... SEVERAL WATTERS (WATERS) PIONEERS SETTLED NEAR FALLOWFIELD. ONE NAMED MARTIN CAME FROM TIPPERARY AND TOOK UP LAND FOR HIMSELF AND FOR A BROTHER PATRICK, AND A SISTER WINNIFRED. MARTIN WATTERS (WATERS) HAD MARRIED A MISS O"MALLEY IN IRELAND ; AND DESCENDANTS OF THIS COUPLE IN LATER YEARS MARRIED INTO DIFFERENT JOCKVALE FAMILIES SO THAT MARTIN WATERS CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN WERE RELATIVES OF MANY HOMES, SUCH AS DAVIS, DELANY / DELANEY, TIERNEY, BERGIN, CLARKE, KELLY AND OTHERS. FARM MARRIED FARM IN THE GOOD OLD DAYS!! I found a picture in the Ottawa Citizen Jan 1984 of a Barrhaven heritage home. It is a picture of a house on Jockvale Rd that was originally built by in 1885 by Patrick Waters, an immagrant from County Tipperary Ireland. I am sending this to you. What is your husband's name and who are his parents? Guess he and I are distantly related. Is it possible to send me a copy of the marriage record and photograph of Bridget Nash and Hugh Waters? Also any documents. I am really interested in collecting anything like this relating to my family history. I am sending you a record of the Bill and Sale of property of Patrick Nash Sr, Patrick Nash Jr and Anna Nash's husband Richard Tighe. This came from the Registry Office in Ottawa. Joy

May 14, 2003: Gail stated that she had contacted the Church at Enniskerry and wasn't allowed to do her own searching. We have compiled an index stating names & dates of the Church's records from the microfilm copies at the Hull Archives. We would be happy to look up anything for her. We believe that Margaret Blanchfield married to Patrick Nash is an ancestor, but have been unable to connect her into our line except in a round about way. Maybe she has information we can use as well. Jane & Jim Blanchfield (New E-mail Address as of June 10, 2004):
May 26, 2004: Hi I am investigating my ggrandfather, Patrick Nash dob April 27, 1851. My ggrandmother Mary Maxwell was Patrick's second wife. I know there were also children from the first marriage and a family farm at Leamy Lake. I was curious if anyone knew of a connection between my Patrick and the gentleman that married Elizabeth Cangley? Thank you, Lynn

November 11, 2005: Hello all: I have just discovered this wonderful web-site, and during the course of my searching for my Paternal Great Grandfather (Christopher Fagan who was married to a Margaret Anne Nash) I discovered in your collective letters that I am also related to Patrick Nash and his wife Blanchfield, they are my great-great grandparents. Much to my surprise they are also related to my other branch-my father's mother's family, the Watters. As if this is not coincidence enough I notice that the name on the first e-mail address is Carroll--my mother's maiden name. So if anyone has any more information on the aforementioned names I would be delighted to have it. I look forward to hearing from any or all of you--and if I can help you, that would be great too. Sincerely, ... Pat (Fagan) O'Reilly
June 17, 2008: I was going through the Website Bytown or Bust, History and Genealogy researching the Carrigan side of my family and ran across this and was wondering if the Michael and Mary Carrigan might be Michael and Margaret Carrigan on my side of the family. See info below the Bytown info. CHILDREN: 1)- Mary Ann Nash born 1828 married Patrick McGuire 1828-1895... (Children... (i)- Margaret born 1846 married James Carrigan born 1850... (ii)- Roseann born 1849 married John Carrigan... (iii)- Ellen 1865-1890. Died at age 25. She is buried in St Brigid's Cemetery Osgoode.) * James and John are the sons of Michael and Mary Carrigan ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// In our Goth / Hogan family history Michael (born abt 1805 Ireland) is Catholic and Margaret (born abt 1806 Scotland)is Presbyterian. She was married to a (Murdoch?) Mcleod and later married Michael Carrigan and her maiden name was McDonald. Michael and Margaret together had three other children (besides the ones listed in the census below) that I know of Florence, Jeremiah, and John. Florence and Jeremiah both married Luke Hogan SR's children William and Elizabeth. I am probably thinking that Mary is Margaret. Do you have any other information on John and James Carrigan? I do know that Michael and Margaret are buried at Manotick, Ontario 1852 /census52/ Gloucester township / p. 42d, 43a, (85) # Sex Age Birthplace Occ.
