Hello, I am looking for information about the children of Michael Benson (born 1780 or so) and Winnifred Rooney (born 1785 or so), from Sligo. They had at least three children:
1. Michael Benson (born about 1813) and married Ann McGowan in Killarga (Leitrim)in January 1843. They migrated to the Glasgow area in the 1840s.
2. Patrick Benson (born about 1818) and married Ellen Rourke in Sligo in 1845. They also migrated to the Glasgow area. Ellen Rourke's parents were Dennis Rourke and Catherine Connor.
3. John Benson (born about 1827). He married Mary Waters and also migrated to Scotland.
