Followed Tags
Meg is a Wiki Genealogist following these tags:
Daniel Breen b. @1818 Ireland is my earliest Breen ancestor. LIved in Port Henry, NY, in 1847, moved to Fort Winnebago Wisconsin @ 1850.
Trying to categorize most of the profiles I manage. Appreciate the work done by many to sort out categories.
My German ancestors from the Rhineland, east side across from Bonn, surnames Weiden, Vorst, Sulzen, Bahn. Also German-speaking Bohemians (Pichler, Becher) from Karsbad, now Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic.
I'd like to add categories to some of my family who homesteaded.
Irish ancestors include McGowan from County Leitrim, Nolans from County Carlow, McCormicks from County Donegal, as well as Breen, McNerney (McNertney), Gallahan, Martin.
McCormick family from County Donegal migrated to Simcoe County Ontario late 1830s. Moved to Wellington County by 1843. Have met a couple of McCormick cousins on WikiTree.
My McGowan ancestors came from County Leitrim to Vermont early 1840s.
My Nolan ancestors came from County Carlow to Peterborough Ontario @ late 1820s.
Theviot ancestors came from the area that is now the Beuel district of Bonn.
Just getting started with my Norwegian roots, with much help from a distant cousin identified with DNA.
Or Pichler, at least three generations living in Karlsbad, Bohemia. Amalia Pichler Peyer immigrated to Minnesota in 1870s.
Theviots lived in Elbeuf, France in late 1600s. Jean Louis Theviot moved to Vilich, Rhineland late 1700s. His grandson Henry emigrated to Minnesota @ 1870.
Johan Anderson Vieg given his surname in Swedish army. Emigrated to Fort Dodge, Iowa about 1869.

Thank you Meg for identifying Ludwig Scheibel and letting me know about his family. I did not have any of that information. I do have his ancestors back to Yoseph (born 1766) and Cecilia Scheibel (born 1770).

Thank you for pointing out my mistake between North and South Dakota. I erred and I changed it immediately before another researcher used my erroneous information. I tried to award you a badge, but you've already received most of them! Consider yourself "double badged" with a Big Heart!

Meg, Just wondering where your O'Neills came from in Ireland- a branch of my family settled in Canada, rather than Minnesota- they were from Carrickmacross, County Monaghan, Ireland.. Does that sound familiar?
