Re: HELP....ENNIS SURNAME IN WISCONSIN 1845 ON
Hi Susan...got your message just a little while ago.You asked if I had found anything more about my John Early/Earley being the same one on the 1860 census of Rock County, Wisconsin and living with Joseph Inness..misspelled..should be Ennis and his wife Jane (who was an Early/Earley) and two young children Daniel and Julia who was your grandmother.
Also living with them was Patrick Early and his wife Julia and two sons Patrick and John.
My cousin's wife Cindy recently sent me some court records that she obtained from Champaign County, Illinois.In there was an interview between an attorney and Alice Holmes Earley...the wife of my John Earley (Early).She was asked if her husband had been a voter in the state of Illinois, if he had been a citizen, etc.Then she was asked as to where he was from before Illinos.The reply was WISCONSIN!!!I was thrilled.We are still working on where in Ireland he was born.We feel strongly that he is the brother of Jane Early Ennis who is the mother of your Julia Ennis.Still no obsolute proof..but we are closer.
Could you share with me where the information is found on two statements:
1. Joseph Ennis has the middle name of Stanton
2. Jane Early was from Dublin
The Ennis' may have come from Meath and the Early's may have come from Kildare or Cork counties of Ireland.We are wondering where "Dublin" came from for Jane Early.
I would appreciate any help you may have.
Please contact me if you have any more questions.Thank you.
