I'm just curious about finding others that may be related to the Michael and Mary Brennan branch of McCurdys from this area of Ontario Canada. From what I can tell and gather Michael would have been the son of Archibald and Margaret(McCormick/Kirkpatrick?) But I'm not 100% certain yet...
My Great Great Grandparents were John McCurdy 1850-1894 and Anne/Annie Foley 1854-1918. I managed to find the names of their parents on a marriage citation that stated the names Michael and Mary Brennan as well as a witness of Anthony. My Great great Grandfather had a brother named Anthony(1856-1936) who married Elizabeth Cremmon/Cremmen who had children by the names of Abigail Margaret Catherine as well as 3 sons John ( JB or JC) William and Anthony. As well John had a sister named Mary who, I believe, married a John Martin and had 2 girls for certain Margaret and Mary and ended up somewhere in Illinois.
I'd like to try to connect with people/kin along this branch/line of roots and figure out a 100% solid link between Michael and his father(possibly Archibald) which would then lead me to the Irish roots because I can only get citation facts based around and in Canada. Really curious to see who else is out there what they know and how far back I can trace this stuff.
My Great Great grandfather John passed away Age 43 June 13th,1894 at Ellengowan lived on the townline of Elderslie and Brant and is buried in the Brant cemetary. Any help tips and clues would be appreciated! Cheers!
