Looking for local area descendants of Florence Driscoll (1825 - 1907) and Catherine Healy (first wife) and Margaret Minihane (second wife) in the Auburn area. The family emigrated from Ireland in 1872 and are in the 1880 US census. Not sure I have the right 1900 census rec.
Known children: (with Catherine H) James 1856 - ? Margaret 1859 - ? Mary 1862 - 1898 She went to Dover NH. Patrick 1865 - ? Ellen (Nellie) 1867 - ?
(with Margaret M) John 1871 - ? Daniel 1872 - ? Florence 1886? - 1907
Also looking for descendants of the younger brother of Florence, James (1835 - 191?), and wife Mary Minihane.Emigrated 1881 and settled in Lewiston.
known children: Margaret 1861 - ?She went to Boston. Pat 1863 - ? Daniel 1865 - ? Mary Anne 1868 - ? Jeremiah 1870 - ? John 1873 - ? Ellen 1875 - ? James 1878 - 1906 Johanna (Annie) 1880 - ? Catherine 1887 - 1902
These people were from County Cork and I have much genealogical data on them.
Also, does anybody happen to know how Driscoll Island in the Androscoggin River got its name?Or Driscoll Brook?
