Hugh McGEE (from County Down, Ireland) and Sarah CUNNINGHAM
to Calumet Island


May 29, 2002:

Hello Mr. Lewis,  
I'm getting involved in searching out the background of my great grandfather Hugh 
McGee who was born in County Down in 1821 and died in 1870 on Calumet Island, Pontiac County  
in the Ottawa Valley. He was married to Sarah Cunningham, birthplace unknown, died 
abt 1891 also on Calumet Island. Are you familiar with these names? Can you provide any 
information? Thanks, in advance

June 22, 2005: Hi Dillon, My name is Joanne Claridge and seems we have the same great grandparents, Hugh mcgee and Sarah Cunningham. I have been doing some searches for my dad and came across the bytown website. My grandparents were Catherine Mcgee and Thomas Claridge. If you need any help, my dad is a wealth of knowledge on the family from calumet Island. I have great memories of going there summers to the farm of Loretta (Mcgee) and Edward Wrinn. He does not own a computer so if you want more, please e-mail me and I can pass it on, or I can give you his phone number. Thank-you Joanne
August 20, 2007: Hello out there ! Sorry to use this impersonal format but I am looking for someone who has some connections to the Hugh McGee, Sarah Cunningham family from Grand Calumet. They are my great great grandparents and I just last week found their grave marker and would like to know more about them. I have virtually nothing on them and would appreciate any contacts for stories, pictures, occupations, place of residence and living relatives today. I am using Family Tree Maker and am in the process of updating from Version 11.6 to 16 and will share files with anyone interested. James McGee is their son and my great grandfather and he married Margaret Brennan and their daughter Annie McGee, my grandmother, married William Patrick O'Connor after his 1st wife died in childbirth with Julia May O'Connor. I have very little on this as well and would appreciate any input on resources or directions to take to search this line. My father is Charles O'Connor, Annie McGee's 9th child and William Patrick's 15th. Thank you for your time . Please respond. Neil O'Connor
E-mail Dillon McGee, Joanne Claridge and Al Lewis
