Patrick Kenna/Elizabeth Whelan -Ireland

Patrick Kenna from Ireland, son of Richard Kenna and Mary ..... Patrick married Elizabeth Whelan in Harbor Grace, Newfoundland on 24 June 1827, probably Catholic. They had six daughters-Mary (James Furlong); Elinor (Ellen); Catherine (Hugh Cunning); Bridget (John Harding); Anastasia (maybe Theresa) maybe married a Russell; and Elizabeth who never married and was mentally ill and in a Wisconsin mental hospital. The girls moved to Port Washington, Wisconsin between 1836 and 1855. They came with Patrick's brother, Nicholas. There is no record of Patrick and his wife Elizabeth being in Wisconsin. What happened to them? Did they die in Newfoundland? They were married in Harbor Grace Church. Mary, Catherine, and Bridget married and moved to Chicago. Hugh Cunning was a lawyer. I think John Harding was in real estate? Different notes give the origin of this family in Ireland as County Mayo and County Kerry.
