Hi Theresa,

Just came to your message about the Lahey Family. My Great Grandfather, Daniel Chisholm was married to Catherine Lahey. It was the second marriage for both. Catherine Lahey, daughter of Richard Lahey and Liza White was married to Fabien Cyr in St. Francois, New Brunswick, Canada on October 19, 1879. She married my Great Grandfather, Daniel Chisholm, April 8, 1886 in St. Francois, New Brunswick, Canada. He had been married before to Catherine MacLean, and she died in 1885. On the 1881 Census they were living in St.Hiliare, Victoria, New Brunswick.
Catherine Lahey and Daniel Chisholm had one son that I know of. Donald Chisholm and he died in Fort Kent, Maine in 1917. He was in his 20's when he died. He was visiting relative's (Dee Family). His death was reported by Arthur Dee. Daniel Chisholm and another son, Wallace Chisholm both died in Millinocket, Maine in 1917, also. I do not know where Catherine Lahey is buried or when she died. I hope to be able someday to go to Millinocket and search..

I am just rambling here but this is something else I saw.
1851 Canadian Census for St. Francois, New Brunswick

Michel Lahey 36 Irish Farmer & Innkeeper
Eliza Lahey 36
Michel Lahey 9
Bridget Lahey 7
Eliza Lahey 3
Richard Lahey 2

I don't know if any of this fits into your family. I haven't found a William, but maybe this is the same family.
Hope to hear from you. Carol
