Dardis family history in Ireland - Riocht na Midhe article

My 4G-Grandfather, James Dardis, was born in Ballinalac, Co. Westmeath, in 1766 and emigrated to the US in 1795 or -6. All of us with an interest in tracing the Dardis family in Ireland should be aware of an article by Hubert Gallwey, "The Family of Dardis", in Riocht na Midhe: Reports of the Meath Archaeological and Historical Society, vol. VI (#2), pp 58-80 (1976). The article traces the family in Ireland from the late 12th to the mid-19th centuries and has some reasonable guesses as to its origins in France. Unfortunately "Riocht" is very hard to find in the US - Universities that are heavily Irish (would you believe Notre Dame and Boston College?) have complete sets. I have a copy of the article and will be glad to send copies to any who give me their snailmail address. I will be especially glad to do that if anybody can give me Dardis information in return. We all will be very grateful if anybody can establish a definite link between the family lines described by Gallwey and our ancestors in the US, Ireland, and elsewhere.

Good hunting,
Woody

Hi Jerry - Sorry to be so long in replying. I have scanned and OCR'd the Dardis article and can send it to you as an attachment if you will send your email address to me. Unfortunately I can't make a definite connection between the people mentioned and your Michael, but there are plenty of Michaels and there may be some useful clues for you.

Cheers, Woody

Surnames: Dardis, Conner/Connor
Hi,
Saw your message board posting from May, 2002 re: the Michael Dardis family of Westmeath. I believe we may have ancestors in common. I am a descendant of John Dardis through his daughter Ann(e) who married Simon Connor(Conner). I know Simon was from Westmeath and possibly from the Raharney(Rathfarney) area of that county. Simon and Anne had 11 children and emigrated to the USA sometime between 1845 and 1850. Their 5th child, Mary Virginia (born in Wisconsin or Illinois in 1852-1853) was my great grandmother. Please reply if you think we have common ancestors. I don't have much info on the Dardis family and would love to get more. I have lots of info on the descendants of Ann Dardis Conner(Connor). Thanks

Surnames: Dardis Conner (Connor)
Hi,
I have Dardis ancestors but am not sure if they are part of the group you have info on. My great-great grandmother was Ann(e) Dardis Conner(Connor) b. November 1827 in Ireland. Her death cert from Waseca Co. Wisconsin lists her father as John Dardis of Ireland. Her husband was Simon Conner(Connor) from the Raharney area of Co. Westmeath. They emigrated to the U.S. about 1845 and had 11 children (all in the U.S.). Their 5th child, Mary Virginia (b. 1853), was my great grandmother. The family moved from NY to either Wisconsin or Illinois, and then to Waseca, MN by 1860. Do you think John and his daughter Anne are part of your branch of the Dardis family? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Hi Julie -

It's possible that I can help with ancestors in Ireland. I can send the "Riocht na Midhe" article to you and maybe we can make mutual sense of it. Please reply to <w00dy@earthlink.net>.

Cheers,
Woody

Hi, Julie. I do have a John Dardis as a son of Michael, but I know absolutely nothing about him. Michael and his children immigrated to the US about 1835-1840. They first settled in NYC and later moved to Dupage CO, IL in 1850. They then moved back to NYC where the son of Michael, Patrick, was killed by a runaway horse. Patrick's wife and children then traveled back to Chicago by Anne (the wife) working as a cook for the men building the railroad. She and her children cooked and lived in the caboose of the train as the track was laid. The family moved to Paris twp, Howard Co, IA by 1860 and Anne ran a boarding house. My part of the family moved to Minnesota in 1896. Do you know anything about the brothers and sisters of Dardis?
