Is this James Hogan Dendy (b. 13 Mar 1783, d. 14 July 1846)? If so, I am a direct descendant of him and Elizabeth Knox, his second wife.
Do you have more information?
More directly, I descend from his son Marshal Bertrand Dendy (wife, Mary Louisa Penney).
I am missing some of the dates of death for James Hogan Dendy's children. I have the birth dates but am missing the death dates of those of his first wife, Elizabeth Humphreys. There were five children - Ann Maria Dendy (b. 09 Oct 1813), Martha Humphreys Dendy (b. 18 Nov. 1816), Caroline Elizabeth Dendy (b. 03 Aug 1820), James Word Dendy (b. 29 Mar 1823) and Augustus Moore Dendy (b. 16 Jul 1826). I am also missing 3 of the children of Elizabeth Knox and Jame Hogan Dendy - Louise Walker Dendy (b. 09 Feb 1841), Samuel Knox Dendy (b. 26 Apr 1842) and Lucy Antoinette Dendy (b. 15 Dec. 1844).
Can you help me out with any of these?
I await your response.
