Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
I have been researching my family in the us for years on and off. I can go back to my greatgrandparents, in New Orleans. I, found out that they used to have shoe stores in the 1800's, in New Orleans.
Searching for information on the Dwyer family. Neil Dwyer, married Edgard Cassanova, she died in the early 1900's from complications of childbirth. My grandma was one of several of thier chirldren.
However the Dwyers came over as mother Mary and chirldren. Where the rest of the chirldren have gone to, is in question. Where they are from? All I have is some legible information on my great grandparents wedding certifiacte, Mary Dwyes maiden name was Owens, her husband Helman? . they where from County Cork Ireland.
The Cassabers (probably misspelled, my records are packed away) where suppose to have a plantation south of New Orleans and where from France. the Cassanova's came from Spain via Argintia.
Welcome to Looking4Kin !
My husbands line has some DYERS in it and I have seen it spelled DWYERS also. The different spelling may help you in your research.
Enjoy your research .
Now had some eye opening to my research in New Orleans. The Cassabers, are Cassabur, they are French moved down from Canada, took the long route too. The Dwyers did not come over as a family, John Dwyer came across on his own. Bridget was a Owens, she came across with her family by ship via Liverpool England when she was 7 years old. . the family where Pat Owens 40, Elimer 30, Michael 10, Bridget 7, Mary infant and Pat 3.
Bridget Owens and John Dwyer married in New Orleans. Trying to find out where from Ireland. The Owens family is my next chore, not counting trying to find the right john Dwyer, out of how many hundred came over in the early 1800's. If there is anyone out there who recognises these family members, I, would use a thumbs up.
Traced the Cassanova's to Joesph Cassanova from Spain, who married Josephine Lopez, she was suppose to be from New Orleans, I, have found no records of her birth or marriage so both may be from Spain. Joesph Cassanova came from Spain by ship via France.
I, have found about three different spellings of the Cassanova name, depending on who filed the paperwork, such as the census taker or family.
Thanks everyone who has sent hits and other info, you are all great.
