Re: Bridget Delehanty & Other Vermont Delehantys
There were two Delehanty families in the western part of Rutland County (Castleton,Fair Haven) in the mid 1800s. One from Ballyhale Co.Kilkenny and the other seemingly from the Carrick on Suir area of County Tipperary. One was headed up by a Richard the other a Patrick.
Given the volume of Irish who passed through or stopped off for a few years in Vermont before heading west, these folks wouldnt neccessarily be connected to your Bridget D.,
The Patrick Delehanty family arrived in 1853 and headed straight for Vermont,where they resumed the slate work they persued in Ireland.
