Seeking information on the family of DANIEL FRANCIS, born Tyrrellspass, West Meath, in 1810; the son of MATTHEW FRANCIS (b.1768) and ELEANOR MAHON FRANCIS (b.1766). Daniel emigrated to Boston, Mass., in 1830, worked as a stonecutter (the family trade) and eventually went to Harvard Medical School, class of 1847. From there he moved to Truro, Nova Scotia, eventually practicing in Stewiacke, Nova Scotia, where he died Aug. 1867. Married Christie Ann Tupper in 1848. At least two of Daniel's brothers (he had 10 siblings) emigrated to Ontario, Canada, and Francis family reunions were held there as recently as the 1930's. Daniel's descendants all went to the US during 19th C.

I am researching FRANCIS's in Canada too. Mine also came to settle Ontario, Canada...arriving in 1823 and 1825, from Lissacurran, County Armagh, Ireland (to the best of our knowledge). Surnames connected at that time were STEWART (STUART), PEDLOW, MULDOON, and BEST were some of the families they married into.
I checked Daniel and do not have him in my database....do you have others you would like me to check?
