Hi, I am researching my great great grandfather, Timothy O'Connell, born ca. 1821. I am trying to locate a starting place in Ireland. He appears in the 1850 census in Niagara Falls, NY. Shortly after, he marries Ellen Moylan. Two children, Ellen and John, are born to them by 1853. He appears in Black Wolf Twp., Winnebago County, Wisconsin, in 1855 without his wife but with his mother-in-law, also named Ellen Moylan. I assume, therefore, that his wife died in Niagara Falls. His citizenship papers only list "Ireland" as former place of residence.Later he marries a woman named Katherine (last name unknown), who dies in Oshkosh in 1898. Allied families: Branchford, McCabe and McGraw (Appleton). Any suggestions for furthering my search in Ireland would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
