Gaspe Connection: eva stewart
Town/Village/Area: york centre
Primary Family Names: stewart, starnes,
Secondary Family Names: sherar
Time Period: 1777-2017
Particulars: Eva Stewart raised by grandfather, Charles Stewart, whaler, in York Centre, where he migrated in his sailing vessel, the John Stewart, sometime after his marriage to Maria Starnes in 1848 in New Carlisle, where Charles was born in 1819. Maria Starnes also was born in New Carlisle, of loyalist descent. Charles father was John Stewart, on Charles and Maria's marriage certificate, it states that Charles' father John was a sailor and was also 'lifelong' of the Gaspe, i take that to mean that John was also born in the Gaspe. The census of 1824 has John listed as the head of a family of 4 in New Carlisle, Charles born 1819, a girl whose name escapes me just now but who did marry, and two other sons, Adam and John Sedding. In the census of 1831, there is no trace of the father John, nor of the sons Adam or John Sedding, it is a mystery, all that be certain is that Charles named his ship the John Stewart. Charles ship evented met its end by fire while docked in Halifax, which likely ended Charles career as a whaler. Back in 2012, when i first posted to this registry, i had assumed that Charles was a descendent of the rev. Charles Stewart of Scotland, whose wife, a Stewart only by marriage, still she had Stewart blood in her and was a descendant of the kings Robert, 1, 2, 3 of scotland and england as well as of some early kings of Ireland. The rev Charles Stewart had many of his children migrate to what was then named St John's Island, all of which is well documented in the webpages pertaining to the descendants of the Rev Charles Stewart of Scotland. What is of interest to the Gaspe is that Anabella Stewart, the daughter of Rev Charles Stewart married Robert Stewart, a different family of Stewarts from the ile of bute, this Robert was the first speaker of the house in St. John's isl, i guess after the British took over from the french, who had previously named it Ile St. Jean. Annabella was not well treated after her husband Robert passed away, and lost entitlement to the lands in St. John's island previously possessed by her husband. Whether for that reason or not, she migrated to the Gaspe and died and was buried there in 1818, at Stewart's Brook cemetary, high above the Bay of Chaleur, in what i believe is now St Omer. Her two sons, Matthew and Peter became residents of the Gaspe, quite sometime before Anabella arrived there. I had assumed that my grandmother Eva was descended from either Mathew or Peter, but i believe this is not the case. Mathew established himself in Nouvelle, near New Brunswick, early census had him with a household of 13 including he, his wife and at least 8 children whom i was able to identify through records. The lastest of these born circa 1810, whereas Charles born in New Carlisle 1819, wrong timeline, wrong town. Peter Stewart established himself in town of Gaspe, married Brigit O'Hara of the famous O'Hara family, had some 7 children but i could find no church records for the names, births or deaths of these children, but again wrong town. Mathew Stewart was a well known fisherman of tbe time, also owned his own ship, had establishedbhimself in the Gaspe at an early age, even before the american revolution, he second only in reputation probably to the famous jersey fisherman Charles Robin, whom he knew well, Mathew had purchased the Seigneury of Shoolbred, adjacent to Nouvelle, where he lived as a prominent businessman and Seigneur. So i am now left assuming that i am descended from either James Stewart, who is listed in a census of 1777, ie pre loyalist, they arrived and established New Carlisle in mid 80's, he is said to have 3 sons, as per the census, or from the veuve (widow) Stewart, also listed in the 1777 census of Paspebiac, note only 19 families all others french names in that census, she also with 3 boys

Time Period: 1950 to present
Particulars: Maria Alice VIVIAN MULROONEY was born in 1922 in Douglastown, and buried there in 1994. Her parents were Joseph Ambrose Mulrooney (1888), and Eliza Ann Mulrooney, I believe both passing away in Gaspe. VIVIAN MULROONEY was married in 1942 to William/Bill Gerard in Douglastown. VIVIAN and BILL GERARD had at least two sons (the oldest Mark?), born in the early 1950s I believe in Gaspe. There may have been a daughter born in the 50's as well. Bill may have worked in, or owned a garage/car dealership in Gaspe in the 1950s. I believe I am related to this family, and would very much like to contact them. Any information is appreciated.

Primary Family Names: Ohare
Secondary Family Names: Mahar
Time Period: 1821-1900
Particulars: I will start with my direct link to John and Mary Mahar. As documented on the website, John and Mary had a daughter Bridget. She married Thomas O'hare. Thomas O'hare and Bridget had 8 children, Catherine (1862-1878), Emily (1864-1883) , George Albert O'Hare (1866-1937), Mary Elise (1871-), Joseph (1874-), Mary Ann ( 1876-1889), James O'Hare (1878-), John Elias (1879-), and Thomas G O'Hare (1868-1949). Thomas G O'Hare is my greatfather. Per a document created by my grandmother Thomas O'Hare came to the US by stagecoach. Before coming to USA he delivered mail by stage coach in Canada. When he came to the USA he first worked in up state NY in lumber camps. He arrived in Springfield MA around 1892. He became a meat cutter. He married Margaret O'Connor. I have attached a copy of their wedding certificate, which includes the names of Thomas O"Hare and Bridget Mahar. Additionally, i have attached copies of the Canada 1871 and 1881 census which documents the O'Hare Family. Thomas O'Hare and Margaret O'Connor had one child, Eileen Marie O'Hare, my grandmother. She was born in 1898. USA Census form attached. Eileen married John Joseph Sullivan of Springfield MA, in 1926. My father John J Sullivan Jr. was born March 3, 1927. That is a brief description of the O'Hare line. I have access to many pictures of the O'hare family. If you would like them.
