Thank you so much for checking on this. Yes, they did marry in 1848 in Ireland. They came to Canada in 1849. My great grandmothers name was Ann Quinlan. Not sure who Mary McMahon is.
Is the Simcoe County Board the name of a newspaper? I'll look it up and see what I can find. Do you have an idea what it would cost to put an ad in the paper up there? I live in California, we have a little paper here (as well as the monster paper that is soooo expensive to place an ad) that is delivered once a week via US Postal Service. It's about the size of a TV Guide. Do u have anything like that up there?
