carmel dwyer - 04:55am Mar 16, 1997 Irish

We are currently trying to find the records of my great-grandfather's forebears. His name was John Dwyer and he was baptised in the Catholic churh at Cashell on 9/7/1832. His father's name was also John and his mother's maiden name was Catherine Tierney. John grew up to become a groom in the house of Lord Haywood. He eloped to Tasmania (then Van Diemen's Land )with the housekeeper's daughter on 1/2/1854. We would dearly love to hear from anyone who is able to carry out a search for us or who may have some information about the family-maybe some living relatives. The e-mail address is - sdwyer @ tassie.net.au

Good evening,

Thank you for your answer, it is the first one I have about the O'Dwyers family. I tried to answer back but I didn't managed to send you the message. Everytime I tried I had an error message. I actually have my family tree from John O'Dwyers to myself and I read a lot about the wild geese, why they came to France and what they did here. I am of course looking for more information about my ancesters. My great aunt gave me some pieces of the army registers in which John O'Dwyers is described. What would you like to know about them ? In what way could I help you ?

Sincerely, Eva P.

I am looking for any information on Edmund (Edmond) Dwyer and his wife Nannie (Jennie). They lived in Sherman,Texas in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Pssibly settling here in the 1880's, Edmond was a bookkeeper and nannie was a housekeeper. Edmond also owned a Flouring mill with a man named Elisha Worrell. He was a sucessful and prominent businessman and worked for many influential firms. He died around 1914 and Nannie lived here until her death some 25 years later. They built a house at 304 N. Grand Ave. which may have been addressed on E. Pecan St. at that time as this was considered to be out of the city limits until 1909. If you have any information, or if this sounds like a long lost relative, I may have some information for you! We can be contacted at melandale@msn.com. Corrected information from my previous post. Thanks! Dale and Melissa Arnold
