James Farrell, LaSalle Cty, Ottawa
My great grandfather, James Farrell, was born around the year 1833 in County Longford, possibly near Moydow. He had a sister named Elizabeth and probably other siblings but I don't know for sure. James came to New York around 1851, probably Brooklyn, and lived there until he moved to Hartford, CT in the early 1860s. He married Ellen Kiely Preston in Nov 1865 in Hartford. They had numerous children, including my grandfather, Michael. They moved to Ottawa, Illinois in 1876 where James died in May 1909. Does this information ring any bells?
