Agnes Julia Donovan

I am looking for any informationrelating to Agnes Julia Donovan who married Henry Renaud ca. 1898 and lived in Cumberland RI, Her son Patrick Joseph Renaud dob September 1902 was my father. I have no further information about her.



In researching my grandparents, (see my other journals) I have found my grandmother Ellen O'Rourke nee O'Malley had a brother named Hugh O'Malley who emigrated or one of his children to the Baltimore area in Maryland. Does anyone have any info. I have running into a brickwall as they all seem to have come over around 1930 and the 1940 census is not available. Thanks. Mary


Reasearching my aunt Eileen or Ellen O'Rourke was was married to Anthony or Antony Cavalcante. They had at least three children: Anthony, Mark and a daughter.

Her parents were Felix and Ellen O'Rourke, siblings, Frederick James, Maryann (my mother), Philip and Gerald . Parent came to States from Co. Armagh Ireland sometime around 1930. All the children were born in New York City during the '30s and/or early '40s.

Any info appreciated.
