Patrick McNEMONY and Margaret BURNS
also Forbes McMENONY and Abigail KING
Clonfeakle, County Tyrone, Ireland to Gloucester and Osgoode Townships, Ontario, Canada

	Have heard that my name or it's variants (McNamanee, etc.)
were in Osgoode but have never looked into it.  My GG Grandfather
John McManemy was born in 1819 in Ireland and married in Gosfield, 
Ont. Can. in  1837.  I don't know anything about him between those two dates. 
When he married the first time his name on the record was McMenomy and the 
second marriage it was McManabee!  Hope to hear from you again.  Regards  Betty
>>Al;  Gosfield is right close to Colchester and Harrow in Essex Co. Do you
know where they are?  Windsor is also close by.  
Regards.

April 16, 2008: Betty / Al, I have just discovered Bytown or Bust and saw the posting: Have heard that my name or it's variants (McNamanee, etc.) were in Osgoode but have never looked into it. My GG Grandfather John McManemy was born in 1819 in Ireland and married in Gosfield, Ont. Can. in 1837. I don't know anything about him between those two dates. When he married the first time his name on the record was McMenomy and the second marriage it was McManabee! I am the grand daughter of Harvey Reid McMenomy, son of Thomas McMenomy and Esther Spratt, who was the son of Robert Forbes McMenomy and Eliza Jane Reid, who was the son of Robert MacMenemy and Abilgale King (the latter both from Clonfeakle, County Tyrone, Ireland). Your John McMenomy I believe is the brother referred to in information I have about Robert Forbes McMenomy. Robert came with his brother John and their wives and a child. Following their arrival in New York in 1848 the spelling of their name changed. This information came from Lois Long from Ottawa. Hope this is of some help! I am researching my family roots and wondering if perhaps you might have any information on the Spratt and McMenomy families of Bowesville. I am descended from James Spratt, one of three brothers that came from Ireland. I know he settled in the Bowesville area in 1838. I believe his father was William Spratt (but I have also seen references to a James Spratt) married to Jane Adams from County Antrim in Ireland. I can't seem to get much further than that. Any help to get further back on the Spratt or McMenomy side would be appreciated! I live in England now but visit Ottawa from time to time. Regards, D. Carmichael
