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.
