<>Dorsey-MoranI am looking for info on siblings of John Darcy and Mary Moran.   John Darcy, s/o Patrick Darcy and Ellen Mcguane, b. 1828 in Co., Clare, Ireland, migrated to North American about 1850.  On 25 Apr 1853 John was married at Notre Dame in Montreal, Quebec, to Mary Moran, the d/o John Moran and Margaret Walsh of Rathangan Kildare RC Parish in Co Kildare. The French priest changed the spelling from Darcy to Dorsey when John and Mary married. Mary’s siblings were all baptized at the Rathangan Kildare RC parish where their parents were married on 21 Nov 1819.  They were John, b. 1820, James b. 1823, Edward b. 1825, Thomas b.1826 and Margaret b. 1832.  John and Mary moved to Boston circa 1854 and then here to Texas in 1859. They used the Irish naming traditions in naming their children Margaret, Patrick Robert, James William, John H. George Henry, Ellen Ann, Mary Elizabeth, Rose Grace and George Edward.

Ackhurst - Akehurst: William Ackhurst (Akehurst) was born in1812 and arrived in Fredericton, New Brunswick in 1831 from Dover, England. His army records show that he came as a bugler in the1st Battalion Rifle Brigade. He was later sent to Halifax where after a few years he was discharged and lived there. I am interested in locating records pertaining to his stay in New Brunswick.
