Hello Karen,

YES, YES, YES! Mary Visnaw Sharkey was my Great Grandmother's sister!!!! Are you a descendant?? There were 12 Visnaw children in that family, and we (a group of us that are working on the family tree)have managed to locate descendants of most of them, but not Mary.

We have TONS to share, so I hope to hear from you soon!

Diane

I am searching for information on Mary Visneau (not sure of the spelling of her surname) who baptised her son Lawrence at DeTour, MI in 1895. She may or may not have lived in Mackinac County. She married John Sharkey and had other children. Does this fit in with anything you know about the Visnaw family you write about?

Did this Mary have a sister named Philomena? I am trying to locate my gg grandmother's family as she was put in the marquette orphanaage when she was 10 and she had a sister named Mary. Thank you for any help you might provide me with. Kandy

Hi Kandy,

Sorry, I don't see any connection. Mary had 11 brothers and sisters, but no sister named Philomena.

I wish you luck with your search!

Karen

Hi Kandy,
Sorry I couldn't answer sooner, but looks like my cousin Karen jumped in for me! Although Mary did not have a sister named Philomena, it seems that another cousin has mentioned that name coming up in his research. Will check with him and let you know what I find out.

Thank you so much for the information. As I said in my earlier posting, I have no idea who my gg grandmother's parents were as she was put in an orphanage in Marquette at the age of 10. I do know that she had a sister named Mary, she was born in Quebec, Canada AND IN 1879, Lived in Ishpeming, Michigan and that is all the information I have. Kandy
