O'Connell Family History - please help fill in the gaps
According to family's oral history:
1.Lawrence O'Connell emigrated from Ireland during the potato famine. He died in 1903 and is possibly buried in Wisconsin.
There is, in fact, a O'Connell Father (1857-1903) and his wife O'Connell Mother (1858-1908) buried at St John's Catholic Cemetery, Union Township, Pierce County, Wisconsin
2. Lawrence's son William O'Connell was born in Vermont in the 1860s or the 1840s according to the family. If it's the 1840s then the Lawrence buried in Wisconsin can't be his father. This William (1852-1938)is definitely buried in Malta, Montana his wife Ellen is buried on the other side of the Missouri River in Jordan, Montana.
3. William's son James (Jim) O'Connell was born and died in in South Dakota. He was buried in Rapid City in 1957. Jim had brothers Emmett & Lawrence (who lived on the Canadian border) and another brother John.
4. Jim's son Daniel (Danny) O'Connell was born in 1925 in South Dakota. He has passed away.
Any information about the first Lawrence, the wives of these O'Connell men or their siblings would be appreciated.
