  • 1819 aug 9 -- Kells -- Bridget Roe is baptised, child of Edward Roe and Margaret Mulvanny of the parish of Kells, Co Meath.  Sponsors are Thomas Smyth and Bridget Bennett.   also found at

    1820 -- according to canadian censuses and marriage records, there is a daughter, Mary Roe born about 1820 in Ireland. 

    1836 jun 20 -- Buckingham, QC, Canada -- We find Marie Roe, minor daughter of Edward Roe and Marguerite Mulvany of Buckingham getting married to Philip Gorman, major son of Patrice Gorman and deceased Helene McNulty of Ireland.

    1821 may ?? -- Kells -- ?? is baptized, child of Edward Roe and Margaret Mulvaney of the parish of Kells, Co Meath.  Sponsors are Michael Mulavaney and Catherine Farley.   I thought this must be Mary but according to this is John Roe's date of baptism.  He never shows up in any census or marriage records in Canada.

    1821 may 9 -- Kells -- John is baptised, child of Edward Roe and Margaret Mulvanney of the parish of Kells, Co Meath.   Sponsors are Michael Mulavaney and Catherine Farley.   If I never find a daughter named Mary for this couple, then maybe there was an error with rootsireland transcribing?  Maybe there never was a John Roe born to this couple? 

    1822 -- 1824 -- There is a gap here for maybe Mary Roe and/or a son named after Edward Roe as per the Irish family naming tradition?  

    1825 may 8 -- Knobber -- Michael Roe is baptised, child of Edwrd Roe and Peggy of Rath. Sponsors are John McMahon and Mary Mooney.  

    1826 -- 1830 -- There's another gap here.  Maybe Edward went looking to find a place to emigrate his family too?  Were there other children born and/or deceased? 

    1831 may -- a daughter, Elizabeth Rowe would have been born in Canada, followed by more: James 1834, Catherine 1837, Ellen Margaret 1839, George 1842 and Sarah Jane 1845

    1837 jan 2 -- a daughter, Catherine

    1839 -nov 10 - a daughter, Ellen Margaret

    1842 feb 3 -- a son, George

    1845 jun 30 -- a daughter, Sarah Jane

    1851 -- census of Canada.  Haven't found Edward.  Could he possibly be in the USA?  Something to investigate.

    1861 -- census of Canada.  We have Edward & Margaret living with children, Michael, James, George, Sarah and Ellen at Ottawa, Canada East
