Joseph and Jane TYNDALL

November 18, 2001
I would like to add to your web site another family who immigrated from
Kilkenny Ireland.  Joseph Tyndall brother to the professor John Tyndall's
father "John Tyndall Sr" .......immigrated to Canada with his wife Jane and
2 children Thomas William Tyndall b. 1822 Coolcullen, Kilkenny Ireland &
Mary Jane Tyndall b. 1831 same birth place.....Joseph died on the ship
coming over in 1836 and his wife Jane settled in Goulbourn twp as a school
teacher....in 1846 she moved to Franktown, Montague twp.  I have not
confirmed yet who Joseph's father is but all leads are pointing to William
Tyndall who married Emelia Byrne in 1790.......from Wicklow....(after
marriage, they moved to Coolcullen, and went to St Laserian's Cathedral
Church in Old Leighlin, Carlow County......Old Leighlin is only 1 mile from
Coolcullen.)  Joseph's brother Jacob Tyndall immigrated to Goulbourn twp
with his wife Hannah & children during the great famine year of 1846.....I
have letters written to the Lord Viscount Frankfort (landlord in Ireland)
asking him to pay the passage to Canada for himself and family.......I have
so many more details, but I could be writing forever......contact me and
tell me if you want my info on your web site.....and tell me how to include
my "TYNDALL" family info on you site......bye for now..Verna
