After James died, Mary married Robert McLennan, of Oxford Twp., Grenville Co., a farmer; and they resided near Bishop's Mills.

Subject: Looking for information about William S Hyland I saw a tree you posted on Ancestry called: 'Doose/Bollinger/Koeppe/Graber Family Tree'. I wanted to learn more about William S Hyland. Here is the information I found: Name: William S Hyland Birth Date: 1784 Birth Place: Drumshanbo, Leitrim, Death Date: 14 Nov 1868 Death Place: I am looking for information ancestry/descendancy on three brothers John Mark & William - the three were living on farms near Drumshambo, County Leitrim, Ireland. The Three were Protestant descendants of Civil Engineers who came from Aberdeen Scotland with the army of Strongbow in the 16th Century. William had married a Catholic lady a Miss Mary O'Doherty, in April 1790 a son was being baptized along with William by Rev. Fr. Heslin, D.D. Drumshambo. The son was James who married a Mary or Margurette Tinman. They had four sons & three daughters. On the parents death all but one daughter immigrated to America in1849 I have the genealogy for all of James children in America. Mary remained in Ireland married a John McDonald a blacksmith. Am searching for genealogy for John Hyland. A descendant of John married a descendant of William three generations later. The alleged descendant of John was Theresa Brewster. Except for the comments from Theresa Brewsters husband that Theresa was a great grandaughter of John Hyland I have no other data. I hope you can help me. Ellwyn D. Spiker, ellwyn
