    Hi,

    I’m wondering whether more is known about Eliza HAWCO who was christened on 20 May 1892, and was the daughter of Mary Margaret Mackey and Michael Hawco.

    My great-grandmother was Elizabeth Hawco, born in the early 1890s, and her parents were John Hawco and Margaret McKay (from her wedding certificate for her second marriage). Despite some of the anomalies, I’m wondering if this might be the same person listed in this tree. I have had absolutely no luck finding information about her background. I know she married Patrick Tremblett, probably in 1912, moved to Cape Breton, and then onwards to Ontario. She married Patrick Gushue in 1923 (the only source of information I have for her age and parents’ names).

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks.

  2. Tracy Regier says:

    Wondering if you have any further info on Mary Elizabeth Hawco b1891, d 1949 married William Yetman. These are my great grandparents and I am searching this line – very little info. Where did you obtain this info?? Thanks so much for the posting – I may have a connection if I can verify the info posted!! Look forward to hearing from you soon!

  3. Valerie Finney says:

    Hi Tracy,

    William Yetman and Mary Hawco were my great-grandparents as well. Their oldest daughter Henrietta (Het) was my grandmother. BTW Mary died in 1940, not 1949. Are you in NL. William Yetman and his parents Solomon Yetman and Elizabeth Barrett Yetman are buried in the Protestant cemetery next to HM Penitentiary by Quidi Vidi Lake. William’s stone is very easy to find. His sister Mary Verge is also buried nearby. How are you connected to the Yetmans?

  4. Valerie Finney says:

    Hi Brad,

    Unfortunately I only know that my great-grandmother had 3 sisters: Mary Elizabeth(1891?), Eliza (1892) and Anastatia (born 1895, died 1957 – was married to Michael Penney and had 9 children), and 3 brothers?: Ambrose (1889), Michael (1893), and Edward (?). And to be honest I have no info on Edward other than my grandmother said her mother had 6 brothers and sisters. I have no other info on Eliza but the surname McKay/Mackey could easily be the same family.

  5. charlene (mackey) ilyas says:

    my father was francis mackey born 1948 in kilbride nfld, youngest of 16 children that Peter and Catherine (Connelly) Mackey. if you have any other info, i would love to have my father passed away 17 years ago, he was 13 when his mother died and 19 when his father died. not much info was given to us.one thing i remember was a story of three brother left ireland, one wen to nfld, one to ontario and one to new york.

    Hello,

    I have been hoping to trace my family tree for a long time, and found my great-grandparents here:

    + 18 F v. Helen MACKEY [1058](16) was born on 5 Sep 1905 in Harbour
    Main, Newfoundland and died in Aug 1995 in Brooklyn, Kings,
    New York, USA(17) aged 89.
    Helen married Phillip HARTWELL [1060] (16) [MRIN: 578].

    I would love to go back as far as possible in my family tree. If you have any additional information for me, I would be so grateful!

    Thank you,
    Michelle Rivera

    Hi,

    This message is for Blaine. My family is looking into the aboriginal side of the family. It has been a common rumour since I was young that on Dad’s side (David Mackey, son of Peter Mackey) there was some aboriginal ancestory. Did you find anything in your research? Great job by the way. It is amazing the information you have found. Thanks for this.

    • Blaine Dooley says:

      Jolene… Peter’s sister, Bridget (Bride) married Florance Richard Gregory who is descended from Sarah Kennedy. There is a link on that side however I have not found one on the Mackey side (yet).

  9. Valerie Finney says:

    Are the 5 children listed below James Mackey and Bridget Quinlan their children? It’s a little confusing.

    Thanks
    Valerie

    • Eileen Walsh says:

      Valerie,

      Yes, they are the children of James & Bridget Quinlan Mackey. I’ve bolded the names of the children that have expanded information, and used the same numbering system beside this info to make things a little clearer.

      I hope this makes the tree easier to follow.

      Eileen

  10. Your info is wonderfull 2 of my granuncles went to USA the other 1 went to canada from knockaderry ballyduff county Waterford Eire date I think round 1880 pat

  11. JD Fuller says:

    Eileen
    Thanks for having all this info on your site. My G-grandmother was Elizabeth Healey b Dec 1861. She married William Thomas Hennebury Feb 1888. I cannot find anything that said whether she was a spinster, so actually a Healey, or a widow. Using GedMatch I keep finding connections to Dwyer and Hawco. I’m wondering if she might have been the Elizabeth MacKey baptised 22 Dec 1861. I’m hoping someone may have more information on Elizabeth.

  12. Robert Cuff says:

    Hi –

    I’m a historian working on a piece about Cripple Cove, Conception Bay, very near Cape St. Francis. It was a summer fishing station at least up until 1911 and we have located two likley structural platforms there. Interested in the birth of James Mackey 1868 at Cripple Cove, which is very likley the same place, as the only other Cripple Cove I can find record of is near Trepassey. Wondering as to whether there is any further record of a connection between Cripple Cove Cape St FRancis and Hr Main/Holyrood… it was certainly a seasonal fishing station of somewhere further in the Bay. Any leads appreciated, Robert Cuff
