I am beginning research on my great,great grandfather- John Bowe born in Kilkenny about 1797. He fought in Florida and was awarded 160 acres in Wisconsin. John Bowe was married to an Ellen Mahanoy, born in County Cork about 1827. I have no further information on her. The daughter of John and Ellen was Mary Anne who married my great grandfather-John Delanty in Fox Lake, Wisconsin about 1864. It is believed that John Delanty was born in County Kilkenny about 1835, but it is most difficult to find more information on him. ANY help in these areas is greatly appreciated. I will be glad to help from the United States. Thank you.
