Timothy Mahony and Elizabeth Fitzgerald came to Leeds Township sometime between 1816 and 1825. Daughter Ellen Mahony married Patrick Whyte and they had one daughter Ellen White who was born Leeds in 1835 and she married John Kelly born Nova Scotia in 1820, who was the widower of Catherine Manning in 1856. Their six children are Patick b. about 1858 in Leeds township; William b. 1860, Leeds township; Elizabeth b.1862 Leeds township; James Kelly b. 1864, Leeds township d. 1921 in Presque Isle Maine; John Kelly b, 1870 Leeds township; and Thomas Kellyb 1873 Leeds township. While these families lived in Leeds Township there was not Catholic Church at the time and they were probably baptized in St .Sylvestre which is the next town over from Leeds.
The 1901 Canadian Census shows John Kelly age 80, wife Ellen (White) Kelly age 65 and son John Kelly age 30 and single, still living in Leeds Township, Megantic County, Quebec. The two men are listed as farmers.
I am looking for information on any if these people or on others in their family line. Michael Mahoney
