John Maher 1793-1878 Ireland to Gaspe Quebec

Posted: 24 Nov 2012 8:38AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: Maher- Kennedy- McGrath- Mahar
I am researching the Maher family; John Maher was my ggg grandfather. I have found him among public member records in several cases which lists his father as William Maher and mother Catherine Hannell.
He is listed as being born -Liverpool- Ireland? And his death in Douglastown Gaspe Quebec (accurate)
Several of the records indicate a wife named Catherine Hanley and second wife of Roseann McGrath (Canada).
This is where the mystery and confusion starts.
My ggg grandfather was born in Ireland- (Liverpool is in the UK- we believe he was born in the either Kilarney or Tipperary) His wife was listed as a Kennedy who died in crossing(ca 1825) He is listed on early Census 1831 in Perce with 2 children no spouse
He married Roseanne in Canada(1835) and had several more children.
Question- I believe the truth is a combination of the both sides. I have asked several people if they would share where they obtained their info- none have replied.
What can I do- Do you have the answer- will you share

Thank you for your time

Any and all information would be greatly appreciated

(the property that John Maher acquired in the mid 1800's(Gaspe area) is still in the family today !)
