I have been researching the Heraty family in Sheboygan county Wisconsin. My father was a great grandson of James and Biddy Heraty. James and Daniel were brothers who came from Ireland with their parents after the smallpox epidemic.

I am the great great granddaughter of Daniel Heraty and Bridget Flannery Heraty of Mitchell, Sheboygan Co. WI My cousin Kay R an O'Connell descendant posted much info through Sheboygan Historical Society. Kay R. died in 2007. The daughter of Daniel Heraty, Mary Heraty O'Connell is my great grandmother, wife of John O'Connell. I have a lot of info on descendants but not much further back than Daniel except that his father named Peter, was a weaver. After 6 sons died in Ireland, they came on the famine ship Manchester departing from Liverpool, Captain Cook,arriving July 13, of 1847, not 1846 as it is listed in Tom Heraty's Diary which is posted online. Tom, at age 10 or so had his birthday onboard and we think he miscalculated the year when writing the diary years later. Ship records from Quebec newspaper found online show the ship Manchester arrived in Quebec July 13, 1847. Baby Martin died on ship from typhoid epidemic, and Bridget kept him hidden in the folds of her skirt,( didn't want sea burial) as told to me by my mother who heard story from her grandmother Mary Heraty. He is said to be buried on banks of St. Lawrence River. (Grosse Isle???? the Irish memorial graveyard.. we don't know for sure as his name is not listed.)Family with son Tom, and daughters Mary and Catherine settled in Mitchell. John and Mary Heraty O'Connell's daughter Hannah ( one of 11 children) is my grandmother and she married John Gaynor of Mitchell 1892. I have visited Mitchell and St. Michael's cemetery and the site of their homes. Mary G.
