Looking for information on Bergin (Berrigan), Quigley (O’Hurley) or Whalen (Whelen) families from Nepean, Ontario, Canada and/or Templemore, Tipperary, Ireland and/or King’s County, Ireland.The family I’m researching was supposedly born in King’s County but immigrated to Canada from Templemore, Tipperary.Michael Bergin and his wife Mary Quigley (or O’Hurely) arrived in Nepean from Templemore, Tipperary in the 1840’s.They came with their sons John, William and Dennis, and their grandchildren Margaret, William and Dennis, who were the children of their son Martin. Martin and his wife Mary Margaret Whalen had recently died during the famine in Ireland.Michael and Mary’s daughter Margaret and her husband Joseph Quinlan had previously moved from Ireland to Nepean in the late 1820’s.
My information for the first few generations includes (based on census records), Michael and Mary (the parents) both dying in Nepean before 1861, but it is unknown where they were buried.Their children: 1.Margaret (born abt. 1798 and died Nov 18, 1858) was married to Joseph Quinlan (born abt 1796 and died Jan 15, 1873) and had 5 children;Thomas (born Apr 15, 1831) married Catherine Goodhall; Mary (born about 1832); Patrick (born abt. March 1833); Margaret (born Jun 7, 1837); and Ellen (born abt. 1840 and died May 1854) 2.John (born abt. 1803 and died Mar 1868) married Ann Cummings (born abt. 1803 and died Oct 1889) and had 8 children; Mary (born abt. 1833) married John Burns; John (born Aug 1833 and died Jan 1920) and married Ann Burns; Margaret (born Feb 1835); Ann (born abt. 1840); Ellen (born abt. 1842) and married James Larkin; James (born abt. 1843 and died Apr 1904) and married Catherine Monghan (1st) and Maria Watters (2nd); Julia (born abt. 1844) and married Michael Carrigan; and Thomas (born bet. 1849-1857 and died Jun 1917) and married Mary Monaghan 3. William (born bet. 1811 and 1817) and married to Honora Maher (born abt. 1811 and died Aug 1896) and had children;Mary Ann (born Sep 1850 and died May 1939) and married Timothy Carrigan; Michael (born bet. 1850-1852 and died in the Minnesota area); William (born abt. 1852 and died in the Minnesota area); Denis (born Nov 1852) and married Mary Houlahan; John (born Dec 1856 and died Oct 1922) and married Catherine Hawley; and Patrick (born Feb 1855) 4. Martin (died in early 1840’s in Ireland – possibly Templemore) married to Mary Margaret Whalen (died in early 1840’s in Ireland – possibly Templemore) had 3 children;Mary Margaret (born abt. 1831 and died abt. 1922 in Ohio or Pennsylvannia) married Joseph Barchey (Barchi); William (born abt. 1838); and Denis (born Jan 1840 and died Feb 1930) married Mary Kealey… my great-grandparents.
My family line includes Denis Bergin married to Mary Kealey, who were my great-grandparents.I have a great deal of information on my direct relatives and a fair bit on my indirect relatives, but nothing in Ireland or what happened to Denis (my g-grandfather’s brother William).Any and all additional information would be greatly appreciated, whether it’s for ascendants or descendants of any of the individuals mentioned above.
