Re: MCCONNELS from Ireland, ca 1729/31
This is the Arthur J McConnell that I come from:
Arthur J. McConnell born in Ireland in 1765 and dies Jan 21, 1861 in Cambria County, PA. He marries Catherine Moury in Ireland and emigrates in 1792 to Cambria County, PA with nine children. Catherine Moury dies on Nov 18, 1844 and is buried in Old Holy Name Cemetery in Ebensburg, PA. She and Arthur have a daughter, Catherine McConnell, who is born at sea enroute to America in 1792. Catherine married Jacob Kaylor on April 23, 1816 in Cambria County, PA. She died April 1, 1861 in Cambria County, PA. Both she and her husband are buried in St. Michael's Cemetery in Loretto, PA.
Here is what I have on Catherine's other siblings:
Augustine married Rebecca Braniff in 1837
Thomas married Mary Ann Skelly in 1830
Hugh married Elizabeth Walters in 1835
Sarah married Thomas Durbin in 1826
Mary married Stanislaw Wharton in 1813
Ann married Peter Storm in 1824
Elizabeth married Stephen Durbin
John A. married Hannah Watt in 1827.
All ceremonies were conducted by Father D. Gallitzin in Cambria County, PA
This Arthur McConnell is the son of William McConnell & Sarah McCann. Arthur has a brother, Francis, who was also born in Ireland - in 1763.
Hope that helps clear up if you are talking about the same Arthur McConnell, or not.
