My great great great grandmother, Mary McHale is the supposedly the niece of the archbishop. When you were talking about him giving money to nieces, I wondered if that was how she got the money to emigrate to Canada with her four daughters Mary, Dorothy, Ann, and Ellen. They sailed from Ireland in about 1850 but it could have been a few years earlier. Mary's husband was James Tighe and he died in Ireland or on the voyage to Canada. Also in the party was Mary's brother, John McHale. I am very interested in if this information can be verified as far as the name of her father and a record of her family in Ireland. Her connection to the archbishop was always told with great pride because the archbishop was considered such a great freedom fighter. Mary later moved to Michigan with her daughter, Dorothy Tighe Judge and lived with the Judges in Isabella County.
