Earliest known ancestor Daniel Driscoll, Upper Quebec.
The information that I have comes from the archives of Quebec. Daniel Driscoll, an hotel keeper, and Eliza (Elizabeth) Carmichael were married on Jan.l2, l858 at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Quebec. Daniels' parents are listed as Daniel Driscoll and Johanna Forrestal from Upper Quebec. Their marriage is not recorded in the index so they are thought to have come from Ireland.
Eliza's parents are William Carmichael and the late Margaret McCrea also of Upper Quebec. William Carmichael is thought to arrived from Ireland in 1832 or 33 and that his first wife, Suzan Kelly, might have died during the travel at sea. William Carmichael and Margaret McCrea were married at Quebec, Quebec (at Notre-Dame) on Sept. 30, 1834. Margaret McCrea is the daughter of James McCrea and Catherine McHenry.
