Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello: I am principally interested in finding links to the Kimberl(e)y, McCarthy, Lavery and Peters families.

The KIMBERLY/WODDARD family came up from the USA to the Perth, ON, area around 1818 and spread throughout Ontario from that area, and then some to Saskatchewan and BC.

The PETERS/MANTLER family, originally farmers in the Ukraine, came up to Saskatchewan from Texas and S. Dakota around 1901 after the disastrous hurricane in Galveston, Texas, in 1900.

The MCCARTHY/LYON family moved from Bandon, Cork, Ireland, to Ottawa, ON, in the 1840s and then my branch of the McCarthys moved to Winnipeg and some, later to BC. Another branch moved from Ottawa to Kenora, Tulsa, Denver, Los Angeles and Albuquerque. Some remained in the Ottawa area but are hard to trace.

The LAVERY/TURKINGTON family, moved from Magheralin, south of Belfast to Winnipeg in 1911 and others to Treherne, Manitoba, in 1928. Most of the Canadian branch of the family remains in Manitoba but some are in Ontario, British Columbia & Oklahoma. Most of the Laverys, however, remain in N. Ireland (not under the name "Lavery" as they are the descendants of two sisters.) Bill Lavery, May 22, 2013
(Recently a branch of the Lavery family
which emigrated to Baltimore in the 1800s and whose descendants are still living there has been discovered. Jan. 2014)

RE: Descendants of Bernard Lavery in Baltimore
Hi Bill,

Thanks for your replies. I'm glad to hear that you and John are in touch. I do hope you get to meet him. Danny was very interested in genealogy, as well, but never got the chance to pursue it.

It would be great to meet you - I'm retiring on 9/5, so perhaps I could sit in on your meeting with John, if that happens. I will be seeing him next weekend (his Irish band is playing at The Harp, in Baltimore!).

Descendants of Bernard Lavery in Baltimore
Hi Bill,

I'm one of the Baltimore Lavery's. Bernard Lavery and Mary Whelan (nee) were my maternal grandparents. I didn't know we had family in Canada! My first cousin, John Tewey, has done quite a bit of research into the Lavery side of the family. I wonder if he knows about your branch. I'm looking for info on my paternal side (Shea), but would be glad to put you in touch with John.

PS - Your picture of Charles Brigdon and family is fantastic! And really reinforces the question of "what happened to Phoebe?" How in the world did she end up in such a backwoods and poor family?

Hi Bill, Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner! I'd very much love to chat more with you and exchange what information we have. Do you know if there is a way to exchange a private message on this site? I'd like to give you my email but would prefer not to share it publicly. I'd really love to hear more about this family, and I'd love to share more of what I know about Phoebe and her Rose family! - Marisa :)
