Irish Doolings who Emigrated to Minersville, PA
Posted by: Jay Dooling (ID *****4301) Date: December 02, 2008 at 10:59:36
  of 510

My great-great grand parents (James Dooling (b 1810; d 1888 in Minersville) & Elizabeth McDonnell (b 1808; d aft 1890 in Minersville) settled in Minersville, Schuylkill Co, PA in the 1850s. They were both born in Ireland.

They brought four children who were born in Ireland with them.

Patrick (b 1841; d 1904 Philadelphia)

Mary (b 1842; d 1919 Philadelphia with Sister of the Poor)

James J (b 1845-1849; d 1901 Philadelphia; married Ellen Haughney b 1853-1856 in Ireland; d 1934 Ridley Township, PA)

Bridget (b 1846; d 1893 Minersville, PA; married John W Tucker b 1848 PA; d aft 1893)

After arrival in Minersville, they had two additional children: Elizabeth (b 1850; d aft 1900); Anna (b 1850 -possibly a twin; d unknown - probably died as a newborn or child).

The family was Roman Catholic & members of the St Vincent de Paul's church in Minersville.

Possibly they were related to a Bridget Dooling (b 1799 Parish of Mayo, Queens County, Ireland; d 21 Nov 1859 Minersville - buried in St Vincent's Cemetery #1) and an Ellen Brennan (d Feb 11, 1914 and was buried in the same grave with Bridget Dooling)

In the early years (before 1880s) the last named was spelled in various forms.

Thanks in advance for any info on this family,

Jay Dooling
