This website is dedicated to the original settlers of Cork or Teetotal Settlement, York county, New Brunswick. My intent is to honor their memory and to share historical and genealogical information about the settlers and their families. By creating a virtual village linking descendants of the original settlers I hope to learn more about my ancestors, Anthony Kennedy and Jeremiah Coholan/Coughlin and their families, and help others discover their Irish roots.
I envision the banner photo to be similar to the "last glimpse" of Ireland my ancestors had as they set sail for New Brunswick in 1840.
If you are researching a Cork settler, please:
- Consut the list of settlers and send me an e-mail if you think you are a descendant of a settler, or if you have questions/comments. When you “claim your settler,” I will post a short bio of your settler, include your contact information, and a link to your family tree (if desired).
- Join our newly formed Cork/Teetotal Settlement N. B. Facebook Group. This group adds a missing interactive component to my website and allows us all to interact with one another — hopefully sharing information and helping each other to break down brick walls. I will then act upon your request to join the Group.
I am also very interested in obtaining materials, especially maps and digital photographs of Cork Settlement and settlers to post on this site. If you have non-copyrighted or public domain items you would like displayed on your settler's web page or other information to share, please contact me.
Céad Míle Fáilte!(A hundred thousand welcomes)
