In Reply to: Charles Daily b. Ireland by rick sayler of 902

My name is Bonnie Dailey, and I've been researching the Dealy (pronounced dayley) line for about 15 years. I descend from William Dealy b. about 1775-85 in America.
1) William N. Dealy was b. in TN or NC and moved to NC where he married Mary Lizzie Danner in 1804. They had one son in NC, Edmond, and then moved to Madison (then Fayette Co.) KY. They had 8 more children there and then moved to Decatur Co, IN. They lived very near the property of Charles Daily.
However, Charles was Catholic, and my family was Protestant North Irish.
2) Mary Lizzie Danner died suddenly of a heart attack in 1848, and your Charles died in 1849. William N. Dealy, died of cholera in 1852 while traveling to MO to visit his presumed brother David Dealy in Jackson Co MO, Lone Jack, MO.
3) My subscription to homepage allows me to search the flaxgrower's list (1789). It reveals several William Dealys living in Monoghan Ireland as well as other Dealys in 1789.
4) My dim understanding of how Daily became Dealy has to do with if you were Catholic or Protestant and where you were living at the time. Both spellings are variants of the same name, as are Daly, Daily, Dailey,Dealy, Dealey,Deely and others.
5) Because Charles and William moved to Indiana within 3 or 4 years of each other, I've long wondered if they were related or had relatives back in Ireland.
