Re: Hallinans in ON, Canada, NY and CALIF
My grt grt grandmother was Amelia Hallinan, married Thomas Ellery (Alaire)in 1857, living in Port Huron.What caught my eye is Thomas traveled from VT to NY and then lived(1840's as an adolescent/teen in Ontario Canada (Hamilton, London and Chatham) before arriving in Port Huron, MI. in 1850. Amelia was born 1835-37 in Canada and perhaps their family's met there. They both came to Port Huron where they married,& lived. I believe her parents moved on and the brothers later show up in Illinois (Maywood near Chicago).Her fathers name was John and mom (I have to check records but I think it was Ann (maybe Burke)).The Hallinan name and reference to Chatham, Ontario Canada make me wonder if we should dig for a connection?I can get the brothers names of Amelia. Thomas Ellery's (Alarie) mother's name was Bolio(Beaulliue).
