O'Rourke - Michael & Bridget Rogers (Ontario Canada and Minnesota)

Posted: 1520350706000
Classification: Query
Surnames: O'Rourke
We are searching for records for Michael O'Rourke & Bridget Rogers (both likely born around 1800 in Ireland.

They had at least three sons:

Thomas - Huron County, Ontario (born Ireland, died in Ontario 1917)
William - Huron County, Ontario (born Ireland, died in Ontario in 1887)
Michael - Watertown, Carver County, Minnesota (born in Ireland?, died in 1907 in US)

Thomas' obituary indicates that he came to Canada (from Galway) as a child with his family, first settling in Perth County (neighbouring County to Huron) for a very few weeks before moving to (McKillop Township) Huron County.

We have no record of Michael Sr. and Bridget Rodgers being in Canada/Ontario. Perhaps they left to go to Minnesota with Michael Jr.?

We are hoping to find others in the family searching for the same information.

Thank you!
Kerri Ann
