Hello, in regards to the above mentioned people, my knowledge begins with Henry Kitchen, who was born around 1803-1807 in SW Ireland, probably either Co. Clare or Cork, I can't seem to find out where exactly. His father may or may not have been Thomas Kitchen. Sometime in the 1830s, Henry married Margaret Honan or Hannan (about ten years or so his junior) probably in his hometown. To my knowledge, they had six children: Mary, Thomas, Margaret, Johanna, Bridget, and Michael, who may have been born midocean between Ireland and Niagara Falls; if so, he was very fortunate to have survived. Somebody between here and SW Ireland may be sitting on a wealth of info. regarding their baptisms. What I am trying to find out is their home county and possibly hometown, the dates of birth and baptisms of their children and possibly other children that died in childhood. I don't suppose it would be possible to find the parents of Henry and Margaret or even brothers and sisters? Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks!
