Hello from Michigan.I have Great Great Great Grandparents from Kilkenny IRE.Here is the line up:
Michael Clancy b. 03-06-1800 Kilkenny IRE (his father died age 103 and mother died age 105, both in IRE) He married Mary A. Buckley "Nora" in 1828.
In a book of biographies in an Ann Arbor MI library, it states Michael left IRE in 1812. It also says he engaged in seal fishing in Nova Scotia after landing in Boston MA.When he didn't find "that employment congenial, he returned to Boston and later went to Providence RI.There he wedded Mary A. Buckley, whose birth occurred in County Cork, IRE.Two of their children were born in Providence RI. In 1828 he moved to Ann Arbor MI and purchased a farm of 160 acres." He owned the farm and a general store in town on Huron Street to sell his goods.He died at age 84 and Mary at age 60.They are both buried at St. Thomas Catholic Cemetery, Ann Arbor MI. He died in 1885 while living with his daughter, Bridget Foley.
