Nicholas was married to:
Margaret Williams
1799 - 1883
b. Ireland
married: Apr 1822 @ Naas City County Courthouse, Kildare, Ireland
d. Minnesota
Margaret or Peggy as she was called was adopted after the death of her mother; by an aunt and uncle...Lord and Lady Mays who lived on a large estate near Dublin. She lived there and was well cared for until her marriage to Nicholas Cantwell..
The marriage was not looked upon favorably by Nicholas' parents.

We believe that Nicholas parents were:
Patrick Cantwell and Margaret Rochford of Waterford County.

9 children all born in Ireland:
Patrick Cantwell 1825 Castlecomer
Alice Julia Apr 1826 Meath
Henry June 1829 Cast;ecomer
John Joseph April 1836 Castlecomer=my grandfather
Ellinore Louise Nellie 1838 Ireland
James Charles Feb 1838 Caragh Parish, Kildare
Mary Julia 1840 Castlecomer
margaret 1840 Castlecomer
Matthew 1841 Kildare

I have no further information on the Ireland background of this family. Any help apprecitaed. I am going to be in Ireland in August 2013 and would like to know more about the past of these people.
Thank you, Jo
