I am looking for further information on the DISNEY Family from County Kilkenny, Ireland. Robert DISNEY b. abt 1750, m. 2
Feb 1775 to Marry (Kepple) Kappell. They had a son Kepple DISNEY b. abt 1776, m. 17 Feb 1795 to Frances BEST of
Bestfield, Carlow County, Ireland. They had a son Arundel Elias DISNEY b. abt 1804 County Kilkenny, Ireland. At some
point in time Arundel Elias DISNEY married Mary Maria SWAN and moved to Ontario, Canada. Branches of the Disney
Family have been traced back to 0006 AD but the direct line stops with Robert in 1750. It is thought that the DISNEY name
was originally French and at some point was Anglicized. Robert may be that link where the name was changed. LDS records
have been checked as have records with The Walt Disney Archives. Any assistance would be appreciated.
