Seeking anyone with information about the family of Michael Hehir and Anne McNamara. Both were born in Ireland; Michael about 1818 and Anne about 1828. This couple was married 5 July 1847 in Burlington, then moved to Rutland shortly thereafter. They had 8 children born to them in the Rutland area from 1849-1864; Mary, Margaret, Ellen, Daniel, Michael, Elizabeth, Sarah and Bridget. Michael was naturalized in Rutland County court on 12 Sept. 1857. This document states he was a native of County Clare. It's possible he had a brother named Henry who was naturalized the day before in the same court. Michael and his family lived in Rutland in 1850 and 1860, and West Rutland in 1870. I have been unable to locate the family after this date, although a Michael Heher appears in Rutland directories as late as 1888. Anyone with any clues please e-mail me!
