McKelvey's & Families Of Ireland - Quebec - U.S.
Much effort has been made to obtain vital records to verify actual dates. Please keep in mind that many of the dates were obtained through census records, shared genealogies, or various other documents, other than vital records. Should you find an error, please contact me so that I may clarify it.

We currently have over 12000 individuals in our database, covering 15 generations. However, to protect the privacy of those descendents still living, we have only included four generations. ***************************************************************************** Our research begins with John McKelvey (1771-1860) and Mary Slaven (1781- 1846). Between 1832-1836, together with their five children, they immigrated from Donegal County Ireland to St. Sylvestre, Lotbiniere County, Quebec, Canada. Their daughter, Catherine married John Haggerty in Ireland. In St. Sylvestre, Mary married James Plunkett. Susan married Francis Gormley. Edward married Helene Shields. Lawrence married Hannah Maguire. Shortly after the death of Mary Slaven, the family moved to Wolfestown, Wolfe County, Quebec. Here, Catherine/John Haggerty lived and died. Around 1869, Mary/James Plunkett settled in Alpena Michigan. Susan/Francis Gormley, Lawrence/Hannah Maguire and Edward/Helene Shields settled in Eau Claire Wisconsin. This project was started six years ago by receiving a response to a query. Since then numerous relations have responded. It is with their generous sharing of information that we were able to find so much of our history. We therefore, look forward to hearing from you. The slightest connection could prove to be most helpful for all of us.

******************************************************************************** An Irish Blessing May the road rise to meet you, May the wind always be at your back May the sun shine soft upon your face, The rain falls soft upon your fields and, until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of his hand `Site
