Thanks for the info. I doubt it is the same family, as we KNOW that Edward and John were brothers, and both were born in IRE. You didn't mention an Edward. Also, I didn't see any dates, do you have these for your Ryans?
This group of Ryan's were born between 1809 - 1815. We have been searching to find what ship they may have immigrated on, but no luck so far. There is just so much information out there, but when we do find Ryan's by that name, it is not on a ship that would have landed in America circa 1838.
Where did your Ryan's go after OH, or did they stay there? This group of Ryan's ended up in Rock Co, WI circa 1845 - 1850. They all raised families there. We hope Patrick was not related to Edward and John and their unmarried sister Catherine, as John's daughter married one of Patrick's sons, and Edward's only daughter married another of Patrick's sons! So, we have 2 instances of Ryan's marrying Ryan's! That makes it all harder, but at least they didn't have to learn to rewrite their names when they married!
Good luck on your searching. If you give some dates and locations, I will let you know from our records if I can see any other connection.
