Townland needs to be determined - could be one of above:

Ann O'Brien (married to James Doyle in Oulart, near Enniscorthy, Wexford.)
We know all of their descendants pretty much, as they all settled in Margaree, Cape Breton more or less.

Ann lived through the Battle of Oulart's Hill of May 26, 1798, (they lived below the Hill) and lost her son-in-law Thomas Fortune either in that battle or later that summer in another battle. Her only son Mogue fought, was suppose to have been a local rebel captain, was captured, imprisoned, escaped and got on board a vessel for Nova Scotia in disguise.

Uncles Edward Hayes and Kavanaugh (first Catholic member of Parliament in the whole British Empire, representing Cape Breton in Halifax for the colony of Nova Scotia) helped him go to ground and work safely until The Act of Union of 1801, when he could return to mother Ann in Oulart under amnesty, and work the farm. On the death of Edward hayes in Nova Scotia, Mogue inherited a legacy, enough to emigrate to Margaree, and to settle the Valley with many more from his family. So Ann O'Brien would be wonderful to find. We've found Mogue's grave stone in Margaree, but it would be great to get somewhere on the Ireland side of the investigation.

Ballymoney

Pauline Ferrie : ferrie@emigrant.ie - (O'Brien 1822 now WEX,IRL>ENG>GAL,IRL ferrie -earlier probably from Dublin!)
Wexford: came from Wexford, though they might have originated in South County Dublin (Kiltiernan). Her greatgrandparents lived Ballymoney, near Gorey, and their names were Raymond and Anastasia (Eustace) O'Brien.
They had five sons and one daughter, my grandfather having been born in the mid-1860s, but I have no idea what siblings my greatgrandfather had.

Enniscorthy

Wexford: Daniel and Sarah O`Brien lived on Nunnery road Enniscorthy co. Wexford Ireland.Daniels`father was Hugh and his mother was Alice or Alicia and he was born in the Shannon Hill area of Enniscorthy
(Hugh Brien, aged 42 (moulder), son of Daniel Brien, Shannon, married Alice Brien, aged 26, daughter of Peter Brien, Shannon, Enniscorthy, 27th October, 1877. Witnesses were Michael Quinn and Margaret Kehoe.)
Source: peter.wexford@virgin.net

Wexford: Richard O'Brien (m. Margaret ?)(via sons death records), (probably County Wexford, place unknown). There is a story of a connection to Enniscorthy area. (There is no evidence they left).
Sons James (b.1838) and his brother John O'Brien (b. 1835) came to US. prior to 1860. A possible third brother Edward is mentioned in oral tradition

Emigration: Two brothers may have come to US around 1850 (maybe 1954).
Misc Note: There were probably other brothers, however we have no names.....bet one of them was Richard! These O'Brien's had no imagination when it came to first names. First two boys after the grandfathers, 3rd boy after the father...etc.)...

Settlement: Jim married Mary Graham in 1860 who was born in US. They had 13 children, 7 of whom died of diphtheria in 1882 the same week! One of these dead kids was names George, and one Richard. They went on to name two other of their children Richard and George. George number two being the cousin who moved to Chicago and opened a tavern. And Richard number two was nicknamed RM and he is the father of Father Dick O'Brien that just died. RM became a very
wealthy real estate developer in Chicago in the 30's.

John O'Brien married a young girl named Kate McKenna. I know for a fact that
Kate immigrated in 1856. She married John in 1861. All of their children
were born in US. Their son John was my husband Jim's grandfather. I
always tell my husband that his past is so close to him. His father Bill,
lived in the same house with Kate McKenna and she didn't die until 1923. She
was born 163 years ago, yet my husband Jim has spoken to someone who had
spoken to her.
(He joined the Army during the Civil War and was taken prisoner in Richmond, possible Libby Prison, he then returned to New York and died on the farm in Central Square.New York where he lived his entire life in US (Storey so far unconfirmed). Farm is now a golf course.

Wexford: Sarah O'Brien's father was named Nicholas and there was some connection to Port Laoise Laoise. I believe Sarah may have been born there when it was known as Maryborough, Laoise.
My grandmother, Sarah O'Brien (used to talk to her son ie. Bernards father in Irish) , (m. James Bowman) was the cousin of one Davy Brien, well known in the town. Sarah had 10 children (7 born in Ireland, 3 born in England).
My father went to school with one P.J. O'Brien in Enniscorthy,
circa 1930's, who later moved to Florida. He married in 1950.

My mother's uncle, Bill O'Brien, was apprenticed to Courtenay the barber in Enniscorthy early this century. He left around 1920 or so, in a dispute w/the IRA. (Their policy was that nobody was allowed to quit.) He ended up
in Queens, New York and gave me my first haircut in 1954 (they waited so he could preside - my hair was quite long by the time they caught up w/him.)

The story, as it picks up in Ireland, is that my grandfather (the 1916 vet)
was now REALLY upset. Not only had his son served in the King's service, he
had married an Englishwoman! He wouldn't talk to her at first, until she
pointed out to him that A)She was an O'Brien; B) She was related to "half the
people in town (Enniscorthy)" and C) What kind of Irish name is Wilson in the
first place?

Emigration:
Source: Bernard Wilson laxcpt@aol.com

Wexford: From Enniscorthy; Patrick (Michael?) O'Brien (m. Catherine Murphy in Enniscorthy). Their 6 children were born in Ireland.
Emigration: After 1840 Patrick died in peat bog in ? & rest of family went to Stoco Parish, Ontario & then to Old Town line near Bancroft, Ontario. (Some later settled in Marmara, Ontario). In 1851 Catherine (Murphy) O'Brien married James Irwin her second husband in Belleville, Ontario.

Location Unknown

Wexford: Edward O'Brien and Ann More/Moore were from county Wexford (parts unknown). Came to Perth, Ontario, Canada with sons Thomas & William. Sons settled & remained in Bathurst twp., Ontaro. Thomas died on April 23, 1897 (at 82 yrs), (Source Perth Courier obituary).
Emigration: Ed O'Brien left Wexford in 1823 and came to Leeds/Lanark County, Ontario Canada.

Wexford: Anna O'Brien b. Oct. 1868 (m. John Dooley b. Feb. 1866) (Source: 1920 census). They left Ireland in 1888.
Emigration: They left Ireland in 1888 and settled in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Misc: While in Broadway in Elizabeth, NJ Anna O'Brien & John Dooley were living with Mary, Thomas, James and William (Dooley?). In the apt next to them are Patrick Gleason and his wife Mary left Ireland in 1888 (from 1900 census from Elizabeth, New Jersey). Living with them were William and Michael O'Brien brother in laws to Patrick Gleason who also left Ireland in 1888. This suggests that Mary Gleason (b. Dec 1869), Michael O'Brien (b. Feb 1872) & William O'Brien (b. Dec 1867) are siblings or cousins to Anna O'Brien Dooley (b. Oct 1868).

Family lore had it that one day they went off to church and just kept going
all the way to the USA. No one knew if they were married or not at the time.
Says Anna was only about 16 or so when they eloped. (Census says b.1866 and arrived in USA in 1888 which is close).
Other family lore says that they went to Albany and stayed with a relative
possibly her sister or Aunt. The name I have been given is Bridget Enright.
The fact that they went to NY first is correct. Their daughter , Mary was
born there in Aug 1888. That birth fact leads me to believe Anna was
pregnant when she left Ireland. The 1900 census says their son Thomas was
born in NY but the 1920 census says NJ. He is their 2nd son. I know for a
fact the third child, James , was born in Newark , NJ in Dec 1894. James is
my grandfather. The 2 O'Brien boys are listed as railroad laborers, John
Dooley is listed as a railroad inspector.

-The parents of my great grandmother Elizabeth M. REDMOND are:
/Lawrence REDMOND & Mary O'BRIEN.

(Elizabeth's husband, Thomas W. FORTUNE told their granddaughter that 'their' church in Ireland would not marry them because he was of a higher class than she. This gives me cause to believe that they were from the same area in Ireland before coming to America. Thomas sent her a postcard when he was visiting a sister in Bunclody).
