Michael BURNS and Mary MILMORE

Greetings/bonjour
My grand-mother on my mother's side was a Burns: Mary Burns, daughter of
Michael Burns and Mary Milmore. They lived in Hull (Notre-Dame-de-Grace
Parish) in the 1890s. Mary Burns was married to Alphonse Cloutier (son
of Sévère Clouthier and Emilie Charron of Ottawa)
I am trying to find more about the couple Burns/Milmore).  Any leads?

August 15, 2001 Hi, I was born & raised in Maniwaki up to my teens! My relatives still reside. As for myself I am descendant from the "Milmore" family which lived in a small village north of Maniwaki. My Grandmother's name was Catherine Milmore daughter of Patrick Milmore & Theresa Muldool, which she married my Grandfather Cyrille Riendeau in 1921. They raised 3 boy's & a daughter which one of them was my father J. Hebert Riendeau... My mother is french cdn. from Gracefield... Interesting. I am tracking down my roots on my grandfather was not too far from the village you spoke of "Deleage". He was born just north of that village called Riviere de st. Joseph. I am heading to Maniwaki this week to visit my father's brother "my uncle".
January 29, 2002: I found some info about a Milmore, not much and not what you wanted but might be of some use. I have in my tree a Milmore( no first name) who married Luke Nevins and had a child Theresa Nevins born july 11, 1926. Theresa married Vital Hebert(born Dec. 13 1914) Oct. 8 1949 in Maniwaki. They had 4 children. 3 boys and 1 girl. Also on your Montcerf page you have Daniel McConnery Listed as being born 1895 (or could be 1896). It is 1905. Visit my Site for more info in regards to Moncerf- Lytton and Maniwaki, and some of the families that lived there. McConnery, O'Connor, McGee and more. Sean McConnery

I've posted it to my web site on the following page www.bytown.net/milmore.htm You've got a great web site there and I linked to it from my site. By the way, I think that the Luke Nevins who you mention may be from the farm next door to my Great-Grandparents in Osgoode Township. They were there starting about 1840 and when my ancestor's log house burned down, they moved a frame house in the winter, on a sled pulled by horses, from the Nevin farm to my ancestor's property on Lot 4, Concession 4, Osgoode (the CHRISTOPHER farm). Thanks again! ... Al Lewis
February 23, 2002: Hi Sean, Visited your site & really enjoyed it. On my Montcerf page I listed Daniel McConnery 1895 or (1896) - 1960 Husband of Veronica O'Connor 1905 - 1977 You claim that he was born in 1905 but when I checked out your McConnery family tree I noticed that you have listed, as such: 7. Daniel 3 McConnery (John 2, Jack 1) was born November 27, 1905 in Montcerf, Quebec & died there in 1960. However, in your "More about Daniel" information you state in Fact 1 that he was Baptized in Gracefield on Dec. 15, 1895. I could have made a mistake while recording the dates, as they are not always clear but before I recheck, please confirm the above mentioned discrepancy. Yes, I remember Theresa Nevins as she was a close friend of my mother and her children also came to school with me. I am not researching the Milmore or Hebert family but I do have some info to pass on to any interested parties. Margaret Milmour married Luke Nevins and they had several children but I only have information on two. 1.Theresa who married Vital Hébert 2.Gilbert (born in Maniwaki, Quebec in 1919 ) who married Noella (Noelline)Nault. He worked as a lumberjack for the Canadian International Paper (CIP) company and was also a truck driver and a bus driver. They still live in Montcerf, Quebec. When Gilbert arrived in Montcerf, he bought the property of Médard Vallières. Gilbert was also sat on the municipal council there for 21 years. They had 7 children : one drowned at the age of 19. On your site I noticed that you had a Marcelline Morrissette married to Romeo Ethier. In the Archives at Montcerf, Book 1892 to 1920 07MN V17 SC , page 24, I have a Marcelline Morrissette, widow of Romeo Ethier who married Godfroy Bélisle (parents: Godfroy Bélisle and Rosanna Larocque) on Dec. 27, 1919, at Montcerf,Quebec. Hope this info helps. Darlene Lannigan
April 30, 2002: Hi Al, It's been long time since I last emailed you. Anyway I've made some headway on my grandmother (Catherine Milmore). A little while back their was a person name Mariette who was searching on a Burns/ Mary Milmore... As fate would have it .... she was my grandmother's youngest sister. she was born in 1885 in a place called Rigaud, Ste. Marthe, Vaudrueil, Quebec.....it's located between Ottawa & Montreal. Thomas Milmore (Father)/ Catherine McGreevy(Mother). They were a large family with brother & sisters along with cousins living near the same district/ farmers. Thomas's father John arrived in the fall of 1835 with his wife Eleonor Conlin and raised a large family on the farm. My assumption that Catherine & Mary along with their uncles and other family members left Rigaud and some came to the Ottawa region up towards Maniwaki to start a new life. I hope this helps for Mariette.. cya later... Arnold. a.riendeau@sympatico.ca
Note: Last week I was at the National Archives reading through the Ottawa Tribune for the 1850's. Father Deleage was an interesting man. After he left South Gloucester and settled in Maniwaki he did a study of the Maniwaki area and surrounding townships along the Gatineau River. He made a list of how good the land was for settlement in each township and the number of new settlers who could be placed in such areas as Low, Wakefield, Gracefield, etc. Then he took out advertisements in the Ottawa papers to try and attract new people to his area. Perhaps the family from Rigaud (above) saw the ads in the paper. ... Al

May 17, 2004: Holy cow, those Burns / Byrnes are everywhere. In the 1851 agricultural census for Osgoode Township, next to the family of Lawrence Burns, is an Owen Milmore, farmer, on the Manotick Station Road. It's very likely that Michael Burns who married Mary Milmore was a son of my Lawrence Burns and Margaret Doyle. ... Al

August 24, 2007: Hello all, I have information on Owen Milmoe and his wife Honora McDonagh of Cloghoge Upper, Aghanagh, County Sligo, Ireland who married in 1827 and had sons John, Patrick, Owen and Matthew up to 1835. My last sighting of this family is on an estate map of James Soden in 1844 on the eve of the Famine. My ancestors who originated from the same place and were therefore certain to have been related, came to the north East of England circa 1848 where the name become Milmore. Best wishes, Mr Terence Arthur, England. _______________________________ Hello Al, The name Milmoe/Milmo/Milmow etc was almost exclusively found in Co Sligo before the Famine and was interchangeable with the name Mattimoe where they were mainly to be found in Co Roscommon. Most of the Famine emigrants and those who left earlier became known as Milmore or Mattimore and my ancestors were recorded in both forms eventually becoming known as Milmore and Millmore, though a branch of the same family settled for Mattimore. The late Colonel Cyril M Mattimoe who died about 3 years ago aged 90 spent most of his life trying to figure out how these names become interchangeable and was intrigued to learn from me that oral tradition had made me aware of the fact still today. I have been doing this research since 1991 and have many notes on the subject. As I am quite certain that I am on the right track, the following is what I have on the family. 31st January 1827: Owen Mattimoe married Honora McDonagh at the catholic church of Boyle, Co Roscommon witnessed by Martin Mattimoe and Terence McDonagh. Children of Owen and Honora, all recorded in the baptismal registers of Aghanagh, Co Sligo. John Milmo: baptised 20th November 1827 sponsored by (page torn) and Catherine Mc------? Patrick Milmo: baptised 17th September 1829 sponsored by Thady Milmo and Ann McCabe. Owen Milmo: baptised 27th September 1832 sponsored by Catherine McDonagh (only one names) Matthew Milmo: baptised 3rd February 1835 sponsored by John Milmo and Bridget Rankin. NB; The John Milmo sponsor for Matthew Milmo was probably my 2x's great-grandfather. "A map of the townland of West Cloughoge (sic) the property of James Soden by the division of 1844 by Wm. Clarke, land surveyor, Sligo. Plot No 5 (of 16) Owen Milmow 8a. 3r. 20p. NB: West Cloughoge is officially know as Cloghoge Upper in the parish of Aghanagh, Co Sligo. I can't find this family in Ireland, Britain or the US after 1844. It is also worth noting that the godfather of Owen Milmore junior's first child Patrick was Matt Milmore. Best wishes, Terence. __________________________ Hi Terence: Thanks for this great material. While I think of it, in the 1851 census here for Osgoode Township, two other families from County Sligo shows up -- surnames Fox and Herbert, some of whom came to this area in the 1830's and some at the time of the famine. I'm related to the Herberts and one of my Herbert cousins made a trip to County Sligo and "walked up the stairs at the school attended by her gggrandfather", Alexander Herbert. (Hi Marian) Also, I found another family of Milmores who settled in the Montreal area of Quebec. They were neighbours of a McDonagh family. I think that the oldest man, born c. 1800, was Bernard McDonagh -- he might even be Honora McDonagh's father. I'll have to check into this later. Thanks again. ... Al __________________________ Hello Al, No problem, that's why I sent it and I have much more. Usually when I see a Milmo(r)e family I can find a location for them. Martin Milmore the sculptor who designed the Soldiers and Sailors monument in Boston was another Milmoe who's name had the "r" added. He was a famine immigrant from Kilmorgan, Co Sligo who arrived with his widowed mother and siblings. Patrick Milmoe of Lisaneena, Co Sligo emigrated to Mexico during the Famine where he prospered becoming one of the richest men in the country and was known as Don Patricio Milmo, such was his influence that one of his daughters married a Russian prince. I believe there is still a Milmo bank in Texas that he and his brother Daniel founded. You will get many hits on a Google. Best wishes, Terence
