Looking for information on my 2X and 3X great grandparents Good day, • Ellen Bonner married Daniel McCallion about 1820 in Ireland. Ellen Bonner (b. Ireland abt 1795) & (d. Boston Mass, Feb 15, 1869) . Grave stone indicates: Ellen was a native of parish Malin County Donegal. parents were John Bonner & Cecelia (maybe Doherty) per death record. Daniel McCallion (b. Ireland abt 1795) & (d, Boston Aug 6, 1890) . parents were Dennis McCallion & Margaret (unknown). per death record •Daniel & Ellen Bonner McCallion emigrated from Londonderry to St John, New Brunswick in 1850 on the JJ Cooke Ship " John Redden". The McCallions listed Culdaff as the place of residence. The ship log has Daniel listed as "Donald". I believe this to be in error as we've found no record of a Donald McCallion in Boston at that time. They arrived with children Ellen, Michael (14), John (12), Daniel (9). There was a Ann McCallion listed as well but no age & no further record of her. The same passenger list had a Dennis McCallin of Culdaff. Not sure if this may have been an older son or perhaps a relative. The 1855 Massachusetts state census shows children - Ellen (20yrs), Michael (18yrs), John (16 yrs), Daniel (14yrs). All born in Ireland. This would match the emigration data. •Ellen Bonner McCallion died Feb 15,1869 (age 73) in Boston. A grave stone indicates Ellen was a native of the parish of Malin. •Daniel & Ellen McCallion also had a daughter Mary McCallion b. abt 1823. Mary was married in Ireland prior to her parents & siblings emigrating. She came to Boston Mass with her husband Neil Doherty & children Grace Doherty & Daniel Doherty between 1847 - 1849. Neil & Mary are shown on the 1850 Boston census with the children Grace (10), Daniel (5) & a new child Mary (1) born in Boston. There are 3 others living with Neil & Mary in 1850. I suspect they are possible siblings of Neil Doherty's. John Doherty(32) , Daniel Doherty (28) & Grace Gelispie (28). We do not know any more about Neil Doherty other than his marriage to Mary McCallion. •Mary McCallion married Neil Doherty in 1843. There is a discrepancy in the marriage information for Mary & Neil Doherty. Documents for widow benefits (Neil died in 1862 - Civil War) show a discrepancy in the date and place of marriage. (The writing is difficult to read) but as best we can tell, Mary McCallion & Neil Doherty were married between Oct 5, 1843 & Dec 1, 1843 by Catholic priest Rev. Eugene Farley (name "Farley" may not be correct - hard to read). Maulin county Donegal. Other names - possible witnesses to the marriage are Michael McConigle & Michael Mc Culligan Hopeful that someone can provide family information on the Bonner - McCallion and McCallion - Doherty connections for me. Ellen Bonner / Daniel McCallion are my 3 x great grandparents. Mary McCallion / Neil Doherty are my 2 x great grandparents. Sincerely, Margaret O'Brien
