Hello, I am looking to find out more information on the Doole brothers who farmed in Adams County in the mid 1800's. 2xGreat Grandfather was John H. Doole, married to Mary Ann McConnell. She gave birth to 5 babies, 4 survived although Hugh died as a toddler:
Hugh, James "Robert" (my great grandfather), John "Henry", and William "Arthur".
I always heard that John Hunter Doole came from Derry County Ireland as a teenager, farmed with a brother George , Married Mary and started a family, fought and was injured in the Civil War, and died at 47 years old in 1886.
I'm at a lost to find what ship John came over on or how he ended up in Quincy.
I'd love to find out who his and George's parent were in Ireland.
Any help would really be appreciated.
