Other Countries / Researching Dunbar Family in Jamaica & USA
« on: Sunday 30 May 10 03:56 BST (UK)  »
Whilst researching my wife's family tree I have come across correspondence in 1858 between my wife's ancestor Thomas Fry of London  and his neice Mary Susannah Hylton (nee Fry) of Camden, New Jersey USA (in respect of a legacy from the Estate of Thomas's deceased brother Stephen). Mary was born in Jamaica in 1804 and this has led me into trying to track down Mary's maternal ancestors (Dunbar) who appear to have spent many years in Jamaica in the 18th/19th centuries but who had connections in New Jersey where Mary was living in 1858.

Mary's father John Fry(from London) married Mary Jones Dunbar in Jamaica. Mary Dunbar's parents appear to have been born in Jamaica too. Any information on this family would be appreciated.

Cork / 47th Regiment of Foot

I am trying to find information about my ancestor Sergeant John Mahony of this Regiment. I know that after his discharge he was a "Barracks Sergeant" at Buttevant Barracks in County Cork between 1858 and 1862 but know very little else about him  other than that he was born about 1810-1815 and that his wife's name was Martha Matilda (Barnes). His daughter Harriet Amelia Mahony married William Wheeler in Buttevant in 1858 and his son Frederick Henry Mahony attended the Royal Hibernian Military School in Dublin from 1858 onwards

If anyone has any information about him I would be grateful
