frank & mary hyland family
FRANK HYLAND (1829-1896)
MARY HYLAND (1830-1880) (Dau.of
James Hyland & Bridget Flynn)
Frank was born in Mayo Co. Ireland and emigrated to the U.S in 1848. He settled
somewhere in N.Y. where he married Mary. Mary was born in Kilmaine Co.Mayo
and settled in Saratoga N.Y.. There does not appear to be a direct relationship
between these Hyland families prior to this marriage although they may be
distant cousins. (It is worth noting that although family tradition assigns
Mary to the Hyland family, a death record for their daughter Bridget lists
her maiden name as Fahey. No explanation is currently available). After the
birth of their first child, the family moved to a farm in Burnsville Twp.
where they remained for about six years. The family later moved to a farm
in Empire Twp where they raised their children.
