I am looking for the parents of Dr. Connell (mar Elizabeth Hayes, d Koleen IN.) In my family the story is told that his father James O'Connell (b 1789 IRE) came to NY in 1805, dropped the O' from his name, moved to Pittsburgh, PA where he married Rebecca Pickle (c 1809,) moved to Columbiana Co. OH and had 7 children: John, Alexander, Samuel (b 1827,) Rebecca, Leonard, Mary and James. If you have run across these folks in your research please let me know.
