I am looking for my 3rd great grandmother's side of the family. Her name is Anna McConville. She was born in 1829 in Lisnabrage, County Down, Ireland. Her family resided in Monroe Co New York. She met and married my 3rd great grandfather Michael Phelan (later changed to Whalen)who also migrated to New York from Ireland in 1843. Records state that Anna McConville married Michael Phelan (Whalen) in early 1849 (some say 1848) and in winter of 1849 (or winter of 1848, or Spring of 1849 or even in 1855- depending on which document you read) their first child Mary Ellen was born (she's my second great grandmother). There were several more children who would be born to Michael and Anna but that would occur after they migrated to Kent County in Michigan. Anna and Michael lived for some time in Grand Rapids Twp then later to Wyoming Twp where they lived out the rest of their lives.
I have nothing else on this McConville family except that family history states that she may have been a half breed though the family can't decide if it was Mohawk, Chippawa, or another. Until I can find the McConville's of Monroe County New York or there abouts in that area I have nothing on my grandmother.
