Looking for ancestors. Francis Farrell b.1806 and his wife Catherine (Casey) b.1822 came to Vermont from Ireland around 1850. They had 9 children. Michael b. 1853 was my great grandfather. Their other children who lived to an adult age were James b.1850, William b. 1855, and possibly Francis b.?. I think the children were all born in Barnard,Vermont. Does anyone recognize these names?
Thanks, Linda

My great grandfather, Benjamin Farrell, was born in Bennington, VT in 1855. His father's name was Edward Farrell and he had siblings of Francis, Thomas, Mary, Edward, and Fergus. I know the family is from County Leitrim in Ireland, but I know nothing more. I can't help thinking there is some connection here. Let me know if this helps.

I would like any information on the Thomas Farrell you listed.
Do you know where he was born? Who he married? His children's names?
Right now I'm grasping at any information related to a Thomas Farrell.

Thanks in advance,

hello there was a large farrell family that came to Vermont via-Canada in 1830. they settled in Underhill, VT area the oldest was James Edward born 1774 in Ireland. he had 5 sons Edward, Frederick, George, luke and Paterick my great great grandfather, and a daughter Mary. Edward was born in Ireland
in aprox. 1812 he at least three sons Patrick, Philip and they
would have been born around 1825-1835 mabey this is your line. there wern't many farrells in vermont in the early years that wern't. Many of the early Irish settled in the Underhill, Vt
area, If you chech with the catholic archives at saint marys
cathedral in Burlington, Vt they have better records than the state as to birth, marages and deaths, Phil

Hello, Phil. Read your discussion of James Farrell of Underhill, who came by way of Canada. My husband is related, are you? I have just printed a book of these Farrells, so interested if you are related. Do you have any old, old photos? We live in Jericho VT, which is right next to Underhill. Where do you live?
thanks very much,]
