That Richard Daly who worked on canal and asked to have his brother Owen come over is a
relative. Michael Daly married to Elizabeth Curran was my Great grand parents and they
all lived in the old Daly settlement near Farm Point in the Gatineau Valley.

N.B. Also posted on October 30, 2002:
I've been reading the various e-mails on the McCranks around Farrelton and decided to
seek some info from you and also to add some info. My great grandmother Mary Ann Daly
(Joseph Daly and Elizabeth Dempsey) was from Plantagenet and married John Kelly
(Thomas Kelly and Bridget Kilduff ) from the Farrelton area. I believe my grandmother,
Bridget Kelly used to go to Mass at the chapel in Martindale. John Kelly and Mary Ann
Daly eventually moved to Bouchette where they are both buried. From what I've read in
your e-mails, your wife's grandmother, Sarah Daly who married James McSheffrey, and her
brother John Daly who married Mary McCrank and her sister Catherine (Kathleen ) who
married William McCrank were also from Plantagenet and had the same parents - Joseph
Daly and Elizabeth Dempsey. So I can only assume that Mary Ann Daly is also their
sister. You also mention that your wife's grandmother Sarah Daly had another sister
named Elizabeth who married Joseph Carroll, which would mean that Elizabeth is another
sibling. Are you related to these Daly's? I would appreciate any info on the Daly's.
I had absolutely no info on Mary Ann Daly other than the names of her parents and that she
came from Plantagenet until I read your e-mails. Here's my info (which I have gathered
from various census and marriage records, as well as direct family info).
John Kelly ( Thomas Kelly and Bridget Kilduff ) b.abt.June 03,1852 Farrelton,Que
+ Mary Ann Daly ( Joseph Daly and Elizabeth Dempsey ) b.? d.March 22,1938 Bouchette,Que
1 .....Thomas Kelly b.abt.Aug.03,1879 d.?
+ Margaret Milmore (Denis Milmore and Mary Summerville )
2.....Elizabeth Kelly b. Aug.1881 ( I believe she was known as Lucy and died when she was
9 yrs. old. )
3.....Bridget Kelly (my grandmother) b.abt.Nov.30,1883 d.1972 Montcerf,Que.
+ Matthew McGee (James R. McGee and Elizabeth Gallagher) b.abt.April 10,1873 Vinton, (Pontiac County)
Que. d.1949 Montcerf, Que.
4.....Joseph Kelly b.abt.Dec.01,1885 d.1885 buried in Farrelton
+ Lucy Brennan ( James Brennan and Elizabeth McDonald of Low, Que.) (Brennan's Hill ?)
b.abt.Feb.16,1890 Low,Que. d.1981 buried in Farrelton
5.....Richard Kelly b.abt.Feb.03,1887 d.?
+ Ellen Trudeau (Thomas Trudeau and Ellen Murphy)
6.....John (Jack ) Kelly b.abt.March 29,1889 d.?
+ Gertrude Martin
7.....Edward Kelly (Disappeared. The family received a letter from Oregon, USA, but never heard
from him again. )
8.....Michael Kelly b.abt.Jan.30, 1895 d.April 13, 1986 buried in Notre Dame cemetery, Ottawa.
+ Helen ( Nellie ) Newton
I also wouldn't mind any info on the above Kellys. You seem to know a lot about the
Farrelton area. On the Daniel O'Carroll and Ellen Swain page on this site, you
mention an Ann Kelly who was the second wife to Patrick Carroll. Do you know who Ann
Kelly's parents were? John Kelly and Mary Ann Daly had a daughter named Ann. Here's some
info I picked up from the web ( Church of Latter Day Saints site ) on John Kelly's parents,
Thomas Kelly and Bridget Kilduff. I don't know how accurate it is.
Thomas Kelly b.1816 Ireland d.Aft.1852 Wakefield, Que.
+ Bridget Kilduff b.1816 Ireland d.Aft.1852 Wakefield, Que.
Their children are:
1....Thomas Kelly b.1842,Que. d.Aft.1881, Low, Que.
2....Patrick Kelly christened Feb.27,1848,St.Etienne,Old Chelsea,Que. (St. Stephen's)
3....Richard Kelly christened May 24,1846,St.Etienne,Old Chelsea,Que.
4....Anne Kelly christened July 08,1844,St.Paul, Aylmer, Que.
5....John Kelly ( This is my great grandfather listed above married to Mary Ann Daly )
christened June 20,1852, St.Camillus, Farrelton, Que.
Also, under the children of William McCrank and Catherine Daly, you mention that their
son Michael McCrank married Mary Ann Hearty from Vinton, Que. Do you know who Mary Ann
Hearty's parents are? I may be related. My grandfather's ( Matthew McGee married to
Bridget Kelly listed above ) had an aunt, Ann McGee, who was married to Owen Hearty.
They had a daughter named Mary Ann born about 1870. They lived in Vinton. My great
grand father, James R. McGee, was from Vinton. There's more info on the
"James McGee and Elizabeth Gallagher" page on Bytown or Bust.
My last question is what does WFT Est.1905-1970 mean? You have several people who
died with this in their death info.
Thanks for your time in answering my questions. I live in Newfoundland and info is
hard to get.

I just stumbled into your site and found out we have the same great grandparents.
I was just sent some info on my family tree. Elizabeth Curran and Michael Daley are my
4th great grandparents. I'm trying to find out the names of his parents so I can do more
research on the Irish roots. Everything seems to stop in 1795 with Michaels birth in
Wexford County. Any info would be really appreciated. Thanks.
April 13, 2004:
Joseph DALY and Elizabeth DEMPSEY
I notice on the site Bytown or Bust, there is a mention of Joseph Daly and
Elizabeth Dempsey. They are my gg grandparents. Would you happen to have any
info on them. I know they were from Ireland and I know their birth and death
dates but I do not know anything beyond them. Their son Patrick Daly married
Sarah Gleeson / Gleason, and Patrick and Sarah's daughter, Mary Ann Daly, married Mathew
Would love to know more if possible.
I have all of Joseph and Elizabeth's children and their birth dates if you need them.
