I am a descendant of John Farrell, but I think he's a different John Farrell. He was born in Queens, Ireland in about 1829. Parents John Farrell and Mary Quinn (TX death certificate). He emigrated to the US in 1855 (from 1900 census). He is in the Tremont census in 1860. In 1870 he is in the Tremont census with his wife, Johanna Doran Cavanaugh, and three children, Thomas, Mary and Michael. He moved the family to Seguin, Guadalupe, Texas about 1877 and died there in 1910. His other children were Alice, Nellie and Richard.
His son Michael, my great-grandfather, had a middle name of Francis. I know there was a Francis Farrell living in Tremont, and I've always tried to find the connection. There are also two John Farrells in the 1860 Tremont census, so I think my John is one and yours is the other? Who was the uncle in Texas the John stayed with?
Any light you can shed would be helpful. I would be happy to share everything I have on this. Joan
