I'm trying to get my family tree to grow, no luck as of yet. My paternal grandfather was John M. Slowey (d). He lived in Cleveland, OH for about 50 years. Married Elsie Agnes Verba around 1935 +/-. he had two brothers (James and Alan, one of them known as 'Bus') and a Sister (Helen). My Father is Richard John Slowey, b.1936. I've located a Frank SLowey in Ireland, Gabriel SLowey in Canada and an Arnaut Slowey in France. Unknown if any are related, any help would be appreciated

Hi Michelle
I am married to a Slowey and just thought you might like a little information. Slowey is a very common name in Ireland. We have researched the meaning of the name and have come up with 'Dwellers by the bog' which most probably meant they were peat diggers originally. Your ancestors are quite likely to be Irish. There are a few Sloweys in Scotland that I have contacted but there are not many in England. Most of those in London where I live are relatives.

hello. my name is marian slowey. I live in Dublin ireland. Slowey is not a popular name in Ireland. There are a number of them in Co. Monaghan/Fermanagh and then there are a number of them in Dublin, the odd one in Cork, Galway. My grandfather was from Co. Fermanagh - Rosslea. There is a gravestone in a place called Feigh in Rosslea with a headstone called Slowey dating back to 1750.

If there would be a connection I could find in Ireland I would be thrilled. I have much information on my Slowey family in the United Sates bur haven't been able to locate info in Ireland. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

I have Patrick Slowey coming from County Caven & Catherine McCabe from Monaghan. Catherine's parents were Charles & Mary & there were four other children, Terrance, John, Ellen & Mary, who married Andrew McKeachie. Mother Mary died Jan.14,1890 & is buried in the Yankton S.D. Cemetery with three of her children. No clue as to where Charles is buried. I have a 1850 Wisc. Census of Lafayette Co. Town of Benton where there is listed a Charles McCabe, wife Mary & two children, Terrance & Mary. Hope this will help. Phylis Hanson

Hi Marian and Mary, In St.Bridgets Cem. in West Rutland Vermont is buried Anna Sloway wife of Patrick Gallagher, died May 25,1879 age 35 yrs. 2. mo. 15 days. A native of the parish of Rosslay Co.Fermanagh.
There were quite a few families in West Rutland who came from west Ulster,Tyrone Fermanagh and Donegal to work in the marble quarries.
Seeing as how there is only one Slowey household listed in the Griffiths Valuations for Fermanagh on the ancestors website,perhaps Anna is connected to your bunch.
This Patrick Gallagher may have been a sibling/cousin of my ggrandfather James Gallagher who lived on the desmene of the Castlecaldwell in Fermanagh (on Lough Erne about 5 miles from Beleek),who also lived in West Rutland.
But in fact it is a love for the rare old irish surnames like Slowey rather than any possible Gallagher connection that prompts this note.
Best Regards,Peter Patten

Hi Peter
Thanks for your email. It is quite possible that Anna Slowey is a relation of mine. My grandfather and all his people came from Rosslea, he is from a townland called Feigh pronounced Fay. When I get a chance this coming Autumn I am going to try and track down more of the Slowey history . I see you live in Vermont I believe it is a beautiful part of the world particularly in Autumn.

Best wishes

Marian Slowey
