My wife is a Dollard whose great great grandparents immigrated from Ireland in the early 1800's. The family story is that 2 brothers left Ireland, one coming to Canada and one to New York. Her GGGrandfather married a woman who was from Kilkenny. Her first name was Anastasia and we think her last name was Hamilton.

She came to NY in 1837 on the ship "Troy" and was living in New York City in 1851 when they had one son James. She was born in 1818. Is it possible that you could find some information about her; baptism, parents, location etc?

I don't know that her husband was from Kilkenny. His first name was Edward.

The James mentioned above lived in Hoboken, New Jersey. Only one of his sons had children and only one of his grandsons had sons. These 5 surviving Dollards all live in the vicinity of Monticello, New York.

My name is Brian Dollard, and I live in the United States (specifically near Albany, New York State).
I am looking for help in getting more information on my GGG Grandfather and GGG Grandmother, John Dollard and Mary Quinn Dollard. 3 of their sons, John, Thomas and Martin emigrated in the late 1840's or 1850's. Martin was my GG Grandfather. They all moved to Albany, NY, US.

It is thought that John was a stone mason, lived in Cullahill Mount area, and was born in the late 1700's. He did not leave Ireland, nor did Mary. I have various dates of birth for the three brothers, but my best guess is that Martin was born in 1815 or 1825.

Do you know of this family?

Surnames: Dollard
I am a descendant of Richard C. Dollard who immigrated sometime before 1850 to South Carolina. The family has a great number of Henry's and Harry's. We do no know what part of Ireland he came from, but he may have lived in England for a time before he came to the states. Family tradition says he had a brother named Henry.

Andy Richard's or Henry's from Kilkenny?

Surnames: DOLLARD KEEFE BARRY
Hi. I saw from your post that you are from Kilkenny. My great-grandfather, JOHN A. DOLLARD emigrated from Glenmore, County Kilkenny in 1871 and settled in Peoria, Illinois USA where he married MARGARET BARRY, also from County Kilkenny, but I don't know where.
He was born 10 June 1848 in Glenmore. I believe his parents were JAMES DOLLARD and ANASTATIA KEEFE, but I can't verify that. I was in County Kilkenny and Glenmore last spring, but had trouble verifying connections.
I would greatly appreciate any help or direction you can give me.
