Hi Terriaco, I am a great-great grandson of Edward and Mary Cussen Rossley, and a great -grandson of Daniel and Mary Rossley McCarthy of Brandon, NY. Brandon is a town to the southwest of Malone NY. Daniel and Mary left Dunmanway Ireland on there wedding day in 1867 and settled in upstate NY where they bought a farm and raised 15 children. The youngest son, Flurence William, my grandfather was a country doctor who practiced in North Bangor for 43-years. My dad, Edgar, was his youngest son and was a dairy farmer in the tradition of most of his cousins. I was at Edward and Mary's farm (our homestead) in 2010 and talked briefly with the current Ellis's mother, but unfortunately never got the details of the transfer of the farm. I suspect though that the farm was transferred through marriage from the Rashley's to the Kingston's and finally to the Ellis family. As you can see Mary did not remain in Ireland, in fact, I think se was the first to leave and her brothers followed. I thought they all entered through Canada into northern NY, but now think two of the boys may have entered through Ellis Island. Only last weekend I attended a Rossley family reunion in Bovina Center NY attained by 100 plus descendants of Edward and Mary Rossley. There is another planned for 2015. Two other things, my Daniel was from Sillertane town lands of Dunmanway and met Mary when she worked as a maid in a big house nearby. Contact me at if you would like more information. Oh yes, it was originally Rashleigh then Rashley's and finally Rossley. Evin
