Michael O'Neill

My great-great grandfather Michael O'Neill 1822-1894 enlisted on Dec. 19, 1861 at West Rutland, Vermont in the 2nd Battery, Light Artillery, Vermont Volunteers. He was discharged at Brattletborough, Vermont Sep. 20, 1864.That while a member of the organization commanded by Capt. J. W. Chase, in the service and in the line of duty contracted chills, and fever from exposure, and at Port Hudson, Louisiana, the Fall of 1863 he contracted Rhuematism, affecting right-shoulder, right hip and back from exposure. He was treated in a New Orleans Hospital in 1862 and remained their for two months. He was also treated in Port Hudson, Louisiana for six weeks in 1863 & 1864.

Michael married Ellen Shortell 1820-1899 at Rathlin, Ireland 10/14/1844 by Father Fitzpatrick. He immigrated to America during the Great Potato Famine of 1847. One child Bridget, of their 7 children, was buried somewhere in Ireland in 1846. The other children, Maragret 1848-1890, Mary Ann 1851-1931, Thomas C. 1857-1888, Michael Jr. 1860-1933, Ellen 1861-1972 are buried at St. Bridget's Cemetery in West Rutland, VT.

John O'Neill

49th NY volunteery infantry, a farmer in Sparta township, Crawford, PA enlisted in the 49th NY volunteer infantry on 20 Jan 1864. He was a private in Company A and was killed in action on 10 May 1864 at the Wilderness near Spotsylvania,Virginia.

My great-grandfather John O'NEILL born circa 1830 son of Thomas O'NEILL, married Mary DOYLE 1 Dec 1855 at the Catholic church in Kilbride-Barndarrig, Co Wicklow, Ireland. These three people emigrated shortly thereafter to Crawford Co, Pennsylvania, USA. John and Mary's children were: Thomas Joseph, Elizabeth Ellen and Mary Ann. I have information on many of the descendants of these children but I am still searching for further info on: the Irish roots of these O'Neill's. I am searching for a wife for Thomas O'NEILL, siblings for John O'NEILL and parents and siblings for Mary DOYLE.
