Just a tidbit for those with Nealons in Tyendinaga area of Ontario in the 1850s."A Pioneer History of Elgin County", pub 1896, page 143:
"Daniel Gorman..county Clare..born 1798..married Mary Nealon..to Canada 1839..after being in Montreal went to Belleville then ..Tiandinago [sic] where he lived for five years. In 1845..came to Port Stanley and is the oldest man in Elgin County...[he died in 1904 at 106 years old].
Gorman Nealon had daughter Bridget Gorman who married Morgan Burns 1858. Gorman d. 1904 Nealon d. 1891 and are buried in Holy Angels (RC) Cemetery in St. Thomas, Ontario. I believe the Nealon message board mentions other (male) Nealon Irish immigrants who were in Tyendinaga around the same time...wonder if they were connected?
