Looking for information on an Ellen Guilfoyle, born abt 1812 and the following children:John born abt 1829; Mary born abt 1830; James born abt 1831; Stephen born abt 1832; Catherine born abt 1837; Ellen born abt 1838; and Cornelius born abt 1840.
Information that I have been able to obtain indicates that the family immigrated from Queens County, Laois, Ireland in June of 1849.Ages are based upon information obtained from the ships' manifest.
Apparently Ellen's husband did not accompany her on the trip over with the children.I have also been told that there were 10 children born of this marriage; however, I am only aware of seven children.I found Ellen Guilfoyle along with John, Mary, Stephen, Catherine, Ellen, and Cornelius listed in the 1850 census in the state of New York; however no spouse was listed.
Believe Ellen Guilfoyle's husband died during the famine in Ireland.
Any information that someone could provide for me in searching this family would be greatly appreciated.
