Recent research has led me to believe that my 3rd. Great-grandfather may, in fact, have been one Jeremiah Darby Doyle. He reportedly married a Mary O'Hara in Wicklow County, Ireland, prior to emmigrating to Saginaw County, Michigan (in/around Merrill, Jonesfield Township) in the 1840's.
His son Thomas (my 2nd. Great-grandfather) reportedly married Maria Conrow/Conroy/Conroe (have seen all these spelling variations) c. 1861.
Thomas and Maria's son, my Great-grandfather, William James Doyle, was born in/around Saginaw Michigan in 1869. He died in Detroit, Michigan in 1939. He had at least two siblings -Grace and Richard Doyle.
William married Marie Grace Wolff (daughter of Peter F. Wolff and Charlotte Bohan of St. Clair County, MI) in 1904 -having been previously married to "unknown."
Among the children of William Doyle and Marie Wolff are my Grandmother Florence Charlotte Doyle - married Duane Roosevelt Wilson in 1927 -and- several other children (all of whom have since passed away:) William Jr, Mae, Roy, Frank, Edward and Edwin (identical twins.)
Would love to hear from anyone resraching this "line" as I have only scant information to date -and- would love to add a couple of "branches" to my Doyle Family tree.
