Looking for the adoptive parents of my ancestor CATHERINE NOLAN (1813-1903). Cherche de l'info au sujet des parents adoptifs de cet ancêtre.

We think CATHERINE NOLAN (1813-1903) might have been adopted by a DOHAN family who managed hotels in Québec City and Lévis (near the railway station).

Her background:
Irish orphan, Roman Catholic, who lived in the province of Québec, Canada.

Born: around Feb 1813 (or 1816, 1821 or 1823, according to various sources)
Died: Nov 6, 1903 in St-Ferdinand d'Halifax

- Arrived in Canada at about age 6
- Her parents (John Nolan & Rose O'Roark??) died at sea or shortly after arrival
- Apparently spoke Gaelic
- Origin: Co. Galway, Ireland (not sure)

Any info would really be appreciated.
