I couldn't be sure of the Canadian locations or timing of your ancestors, but my Thomas Walsh arrived on Prince Edward Island about the time of the rebellions instigated by the Society of United Irishmen. Thomas was a farmer, his son Michael (1813-1893) became involved in the Canadian wooden shipbuilding industry, and Michael's daughter Anne (my great-grandmother) moved to Boston after steel ships ended employment opportunities for shipwrights and ship's carpenters.  Some of Michael's grandchildren moved west into Ontario.

My mothers maiden name is Coyne. My maternal gg-grandparents were born in Co. Mayo circa 1830 and settled in Rush County, Indiana. They had a daughter Sarah Coyne that married Michael Walsh [Walsh-3508] who was also from Co. Mayo.  He lived in Bedford, IN, had brothers in Chicago and also family in New York.

My Coyne gg-grandparents Thomas Coyne and Bridget O'Malley are brick-walls in my genealogy research. If you come across links to Coynes in Rush county Indiana in your research I would appreciate any info you would care to share.

Any idea where your Walsh originated from in Ireland? I have  6 lines of Walsh from County Clare, (Mary Walsh 1840ish -1909). Bridget Walsh. County Cork -Richard Walsh or John R Walsh, b 1835ish. Moved to Birmingham England prior to 1860. County Kilkenny- Ellen Walsh

It looks like my Walsh line came from Galway; however that being said, this was also a disembarkment point in Ireland. So I have not confirmed with a high level of confidence this is the origins of my family. Milwaukee has an Irish heritage museum and research center, I hope to search there archives on the Walsh ancestry and migration to Wisconsin. MaryDon
