Purpose: This website is my effort to publicize the research I've done and to connect with others interested in genealogy.  With the help of visitors like you, I hope to maintain and add to what I've learned about my family, their origins and the historical events that influenced them.


The Irish part of the family:

QUINN -- 1820 Cloughjordan, Tipperary, Ireland >>1847 Melbourne, Australia >> 1870 Brisbane, Queensland, Australia and Troy, New York  >> 189? Bronx, New York  >> 1910 Waco, Texas >> 1912 Fort Worth, Texas

HIGGINS -- 185? Ireland >> 1855 Troy, New York >> 189? Bronx, New York

WALSH -- 18?? Ireland >> New York

JONES -- England?

The Scots:

WHITE -- 1894 Airdrie, Lanarkshire, Scotland >> Cherokee County, Kansas >> 1898 Denison, Texas >> 1900 Fort Worth, Texas

BROWN -- Peter Brown, gardener, in Paisley, Scotland 1860> Betsy Brown, Airdrie, Lanarkshire 1887 married John Kenneth White

ANDERSON -- 1909 Glasgow/Irvine, Scotland >> Fort Worth, Texas

RAMSAY -- Kirkmichael, Ayrshire, Scotland m. William Anderson.

Additional stuff that interests me:

Quinns in Australia - Edward and Margaret Cleary Quinn married in Tipperary in 1847 and headed for Port Philip/Melbourne, Australia.  A number of their relatives also migrated and the family's adventures reflect the history of Australia.

The Irish Potato Famine was probably a big factor in the Quinn's emigration to Australia and the Higgins and Donahues moving to New York.
