Re: KEMMET from Ireland
I am related to the Kemmett Family from Janesville, Wisconsin.The parents from Ireland were named Michael and Ellen (Ellenor).I have no information on Michael but he did not come to the USA with his family.Ellen was born abt 1801 and died in 1884 in Janesville.She came to New York aboard the ship Excelsior from Liverpool on November 6, 1851 with four of her six children including Mary, Michael, Roger, and James.A daughter Ellen (my relative) and a son Thomas were not with the mother when she immigrated.Ellen A. Kemmett (1825-1900) married John Michael Roach (1826-1901) and ismy connection to the Kemmett Family.Ellen (mother) lived with daughter Ellen A. Roach in Janesville (1860 census). Mary Kemmett (b.1831) married Walter Mooney in Janesville in 1856 (lived in Illinois). Michael Kemmett (1833-1917) married Anna A. McGlone (1844-1916) and farmed in Richmond, Wisconsin (Walworth County) and is buried in Delevan. Roger Kemmett (b. 1836) was a bachelor.James Kemmett (1839-1908) was married to Margaret Mary Joyce (1836-1910). Thomas Kemmett (1830-1876) married Mary Conroy (1835-1918) and are buried in Janesville (Mt. Olivet). I do not know where the Kemmetts came from in Ireland, where and when Ellen A. Kemmett married John Michael Roach, where the Roaches are from in Ireland, or what ship(s) Ellen A. Roach, John Michael Roach or Thomas Kemmett came on. I have additional information on Kemmett Family members.
