John O'Malley (O'Malia) was born about 1788 and Married Elizabeth Sweeney (Westport, Co. Mayo). They had a boy John (Sept 3, 1821) and a daughter Julia (Jan, 1831). Some time between April 1930 and the summer/fall of 1831 he was killed by English soldiers for being out (oral history: went out on the door step to smoke his pipe) after curfew. Elizabeth Sweeney packed up the children and came to Quebec City, Quebec, Canada and arrived in 1831. I cannot find any information relating to them on the web. Any help would be appreciated. Frank
PS: I have ALL the information I need since 1831...It's the Irish information I need...where they lived, came from, their parents name, etc...
Hard to tell, It all depends what I'll get for my $38 and how long it will take. I am ready to wait a week for and answer but not much more than that. If the answer is that you will need more money, please cancell now. If you feel there is a good chance of success, okay. But if you feel my only hope is to go to Ireland, cancell now and I will leake positive feedback for honesty.
PS: the original text should have read "Between 1830" not "1930"
I will research this question for you.
As I understand it, you are looking for information prior to 1831?
Do you know the parents' names of John and/or Elizabeth or possibly the names of any siblings?
If I need further information, I will be in contact.
Unfortunately, I have no other information. All I can tell you is that not too long after they arrived in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada in 1831 the widow (Mrs. John O'Malley) Elizabeth Sweeney went into the Dry Goods business (importing and Exporting) and later on her son John and later still her Grandson Michael continued on. In her obituary in the Quebec Mercury Newspaper it list her as being a native of Westport Co. Mayo, Ireland. The Oral history is that someone in the family owned a ship and that they were lost at sea. Elizabeth Sweeney was born in 1791 give or take 6 months.
Like I posted earlier, I have given you a week. Good luck, I would certainly like my question answered, but I will understand if it doesn't work out. If you find someone before the week runs out, I'll look at extending my delay, at that time.
I got a "We give up" email from Just Answer. As agreed, I have given your organization until Monday, March the 4th 2013 at 4:15 pm to come up with an answer. If you have not provided the service I asked for by then, I will expect a full refund and NOT a credit for other questions. I'm a little dissapointed that I had to hear from you that your expert "dumped" me and not a word from her or at least an explanation. I will not be giving you negative feedback because of that, I am only mentioning it for your information.
