I am a descendant of Callaghans who always claimed Powers as family
Did your Margaret marry a Thomas Callaghan?
If so, who were his parents?
Hope you are still watching this board.

According to the book Peter Robinson's Settlers 1823 & 1825 by Carol Bennett, Denis Driscoll and his family sailed to Canada on the ship Brunswick from Cape Clear, Co. Cork Ireland as part of the 1825 Peter Robinson group. He was a 43 year old fisherman and arrived with his wife Mary (40) and their six children: Cornelius (20), Mary (18), Murtough (15), Denis (7), John (5) and Margaret (1). Denis, Mary and the younger children settled at S lot 11, con 8, Ennismore Twp. His son Cornelius was given N lot 7, con 7. The Driscolls are mentioned on pages 73-74 of this book. Hope this helps.
