I am descended from John Maher, married to Roseann, their son Peter Married to Catherine White who had many children, one of which was my grandfather Charles born 1880.
The information you provided I did have most of these relationships....does anyone know where in Ireland the Mahers came from
Is there some documentation that shows John and James were brothers or not. As I mentioned in my opening post- on several public member trees a John Maher 1793-1868 (death in Douglastown) is listed. They also list William Maher as the father and have at least one to two more generations of family- but as of yet no one has responded to my query about what documents they have to have made these connections.
Have you been researching for a long time. Our family still has a summer residence on some of the property originally owned by John Maher. It is interesting to see how far the descendants have moved from the original areas of Ireland and eastern Canada.
Thank you for your speedy response
