Thanks for the excerpts from the book. Someone sent me those pages about 5 years ago. Very interesting.
The Doherty children may have been born in Ireland, but I don't think they all were. Matthew's two sisters lived in a workhouse as children. Matthew and Thomas also must have been in a workhouse and that is how they came to Canada as British Home Children. I believe their father's name was John Dougherty (later Doherty and even Dogherty was used.) Matthew went back to find his sisters in Liverpool and brought Margaret and Mary Ann with their families to Canada.
I love to get back further in the family history but have reached a blank.
