Toker/ Collins Drogheda, Droichead Atha
Hi I am looking for any details on Captain Edward Toker of the steamship the Leinster Lass. He is my great great great great grandfather. He married Ellen Bagnall and my great great great grandmother, his daughter, married Mary Toker September 1859 at St Peters RC church. She had a sister Jane Toker who married in 1868/9 February to a McKenna. I have hit a roadblock as cannot find any details of Capt Edward Tokers family or Marys husband Patrick Collins apart from him formerly being of the Imperial Hotel Drogheda. It sounds like he was staying there. He had money and went to Liverpool to run two hotels on the docks at Mersey st Liverpool. Any McKennas who have any details of the Tokers or Bagnalls or Of Patrick himself gratefully received. Is there a family bible out there?? Would love to hear- also does anyone know of a photo or painting of the Captain? He was quite prominent in the town. Thanks Delphi

red mail Myles/Brady Drogheda, Droichead Atha
I am looking for information on a Mary Myles from Drogheda. She wrote a letter to her cousin, Anne Brady of Chicago in 1904 thanking her for looking into the welfare of the orphan children of Mary Jane Lawless. They would have been orphaned in Chicago in the 1890's, mother Mary Jane and father Patrick Fegan or Fagan. We don't have any idea who Mary Myles or Anne Brady were and why they were concerned with the orphan children, who were my grandfather and his sisters.
red mail Lawless Fegan Fagan Drogheda, Droichead Atha
Looking for information on my great-grandmother, MaryJane Lawless. She married Patrick Fegan in St. Mary's in Dublin in May of 1887. The left for the US shortly after that and ended up in Chicago. Within 10 years of arrival they both passed away and orphaned 3 children. We have copies of letter's of introduction from Rev. Nicolas Healy of Dublin and pictures that were taken at a studio in Drogheda on Lawrence Street. From copies of letters we have it seems that marriage was not approved of by her family and she was disowned. She also had a cousin who was in the Sisters of St. Joseph Convent in Caledonia named Sister Ermatrude. Her Uncle was Rev. F or J Thomas Lawless who was a professor at the College of St. Stanislaus. We think her father's name was Nicholas. Any information on any of the above mentioned people would be most helpful. We only know they were from County Louth near Drogheda in the 1880's. Any information would be helpful.
