This is from research done by Paul C. Maroney prior to 1983.He received this information from Nina Greening.
EDWARD MARONEY and Catherine McMullen Maroney sailed to America from Ireland late in the month of December 1831 with their six children, plus Daniel who was apparently born in transit.Paul says that Edward and his wife Catherine were from County Cork Ireland.He says his research shows that in southern Ireland the family is known as MORONEY while in northern Ireland the name is spelled MARONEY.Shortly after the arrival of the family at New York, they later moved to Philadelphia, PA.After that having "poled" their way on a flat boat up the Raisin River, in Michigan, where they setteled (sic) near a mill, to what is now Sharon Hollow, the Irish Hills, Lenawee County, Michigan.Then by treck (sic) to a place in Lodi Township, Washtenaw County, Michigan.He was married in Lodi Township,Dexter, Michigan. Their father and mother both died, leaving seven children, the youngest, probably about 3 years of age.These Maroneys made their homes in and around Chelsea, Michigan, which is just west of Ann Arbor.
Their second youngest child was born in 1813. Want a laugh?She was married six times.Wow.
