Good evening Lisa from Beijing,
The details of John McPartlin and Margaret "Maggie" Burns and their descendents have been sketchy. My mother told me stories of children having moved to Montreal. One of them being one John Joeseph McPartlin (who is my great-grandfather), and the other one my mother could not remember. Apparently as well there was an Aunt that came over with the two boys, but upon setting foot in Montreal made a bee-line for New York City.
I do not have nor can not find any record of John and Maggie or of their children except for John Joeseph McPartlin (who married Jesse Dron Stewart of Sligo). It does sound like though that Peter, Francis, and Michael were his siblings. I canot find any record of Maggie and John's parents.
I have always known that we were the only branch of the McPartlin tree in Canada, but have made some contacts in Eire. My cousin from Regina married a Gardai from Donegal and now lives there. I have some deep-set connections in the Corca Dhuibhne.
If you have any info about these family members it would be very much appreciated.
Whereabouts are you located?
