Hi.I am trying to find further information about my Fetherston ancestors.My great grandmother was Emma Fetherston who was born in Mallow, Co. Cork, Ireland about 1847.She immigrated to Canada prior to 1881 as she married my great grandfather George Kelly prior to that time.She apparently had 13 brothers and sisters.At least 4 of the girls moved to Canada at one time or other.My great aunt Alice was a servant to Lady Drummond. I know for a fact that Emma, Alice, Margaret and Susan Gertrude (aka Jette) all came to Canada.Jette and Emma married two brothers George and Edward (Ned)Kelly.All of their brothers were in the British Navy.Richard, born abt 1863, died in England.His son, William John came to Canada and settled in Ontario.They had a sister Rose who was married to a Stephenson in Ireland and who, I believe never came to Canada.Their parents were James Fetherston and Harriet Wallace. So far, I know the following childrens names: Rose b 1844 Mallow Cork m Andrew Stephenson in Dublin and had 3 children who all died young.They lived in Cappakilrush, Co. Clare. Emma b 1847 Mallow Cork m George Kelly in Montreal, Canada Margaret b 1854 Ireland m Michael Toner in Montreal, Canada Richard b 1863 Ireland m Julia Daley Andrew James Robert John Alice b Ireland m William McGranahan in Montreal, Canada Susan Gertrude (Jette) b Ireland m Edward (Ned) Kelly, Montreal, Canada
would like to have any assistance in tracing the birth locations of each of the above as well as finding the other children and descendants and also the information about the parents.Apparently, James the father was a blind musician.
please contact me if you have information.Thank You.
