I feel sure my Ireland Mantle family started out in England - do you know of a link ?? Thomas Bartholomew Mantle b. 1820 County Cork Ireland. Bridget Quinn Mantle b. 1831 County Galway Ireland. They were probably married in Ireland and then traveled from Dublin to New York City around 1857. Thomas Joseph Mantle was born in NYC in 1858. The family moved to Ohio, around Cincinnati, shortly thereafter. All are buried at Calvary Cemetery in Ashland Ky. Thomas J. married Mary Gallagher of Ohio in 1880. They eventually moved to Greenup County KY; they had many children. Mary died in 1895. Thomas J. and his children evidently moved to Ashland, KY. In 1916, Thomas J. married Harriet (Hattie) Tolliver Tussey,widow of Samuel Tussey(b.1876 d.1903?) who also had many children - Oscar, Mona, Sarah (Anne), Charles, Mary Arvilla (Biddie). Thomas Joseph Mantle and Harriet, (my grandparents) had one child - John Charles Mantle, my father, born 1922 in Ashland KY. I have hit a brick wall re Thomas Bartholomew and Bridget Quinn Mantle. Any help will be appreciated.
