|The first Michael Dwyer (1803) came to America in 1865. Some of his children came before him, and the last of them came with him and his wife, Margaret Kelly.Their children were Patrick Murrahy, Anthony Dwyer, Bridget Dwyer, John Dwyer, William Dwyer, Catherine Dwyer and Michael Dwyer.(This last Michael Dwyer was my grandfather.)They first came to Lock Haven, PA, but upon Michael's (1803) death in 1866, they moved to Renovo, PA.|
Anthony and Bridget married a brother and sister in Lock Haven, PA and eventually moved to Gleason, PA.Anthony married Catherine King and Bridget married Patrick King.
William, Catherine and Michael settled in Renovo, and raised children there.

Michael (1841) married Mary Nagle from Liscannor, Co. Clare and they had 11 children.My father, John Mark Dwyer was the youngest.
