Hey Dan - have you done an Ancestry DNA test yet?

Jane McKenna is my gr-gr-gr-grandmother, born in Ireland in 1815. She married John O'Toole. I have a few very distant cousin matches with people who have the McKenna surname with McKenna from County Monaghan, Ireland.

Hi Dan, you have lots of info on your folks, I did a quick search for you.
I looked at James who from your notes looks like he moved to pei in 1869, this would mean we should find him in griffiths valuation (1860's) so I looked for anything like Tyhallen in Monaghan - there are a couple of similars in townland names however there is actually a parish called Tehallen - I'd guess this is the Tehallen refferred to in your notes.
So I searched for James McKennas in Tehallen parish - only 2 - 1 in Tullylish townland and 1 in Drumagelvin

above link takes you to both, I'd guess Drumagelvin for you as there are other mckennas there beside the James with similar first names to your other folks.

Yeah Dan I looked a little harder using google maps for those townlands - I was nearly mistaken with a Drumnagalvin I seen but then seen Drumagelvin which I'm closer to thinking is your man now because: there appears to be 'on google maps' a townland also by the parish name - this happens often enough - this townland is called Tehallen in google maps and is directly below our Drumagelvin - too close a coincidence in my experience - I havn't checked yet but I'd guess our griffiths drumagelvin mckennas are on bottom end of Drumagelvin ie closer to Tehallen.
Tullylish turns out to be not very far away either - the same man James might have had a couple of holdings or perhaps just another James. - You should study surrounding townlands to see if any other mckennas close by - sometimes you will find James spelled as Jas - also note that Drumagelvin etc are very close to Armagh border - always worth checking townlands in adjoining county. Good luck in your quest Dan I hope some of this helps.

hehhee I'm more convinced for you now Dan, I took a look at Ardgonnell townland in neighbouring county Armagh - your Grays were here buddy - and if you look closely at both mckennas in drumagelvin,monaghan and grays in ardgonnell,armagh - you could have thrown a stone from one family to the other - ie they just accross the fields from one another, too many coincidences for these not to be your folks - I've usually found that my mckenna ancestors didnt look far for wives either - hehhee we knew the grass was the greenest right were we where lol

Communication Problem:
Not sure when James moved to PEI, the second date is his passing away in PEI. where as the first date is his birth....
He must have moved somewhere between 1821 (oldest born in ireland), and 1843 (death of spouse Margaret in PEI)
Thanks for all your help, can you tell me what sites you used to find this information?

aaahhh only seeing now the d. included before the dates, sorry dude, but we'll stick with it for now, check my other posts to see Grays are not far away, perhaps the james I found is a cousin or son, nephew etc, now we should check Tithe Evaluation for the area - it concerns the 1820's-30's I'll get back to you but heres some Tool links I use:
griffiths
http://www.askaboutireland.ie/griffith-valuation/index.xml
tithe
http://titheapplotmentbooks.nationalarchives.ie/search/tab/h...

loads other tool sites ie censuses, graveyards etc, but first coffee and tithe

Thanks for all your help. BTW are you part of the McKenna clan?
I realize there is limited documentation available, but I wanted to let youknow my goal.
John McKenna 1766 Monaghan, 1st Gen
James Patrick 1791 Monaghan 2nd Gen
James 1820 Monaghan 3rd Gen
Patrick James 1852 PEI 4th Gen
John 1893 PEI 5th Gen
John 1940 Somerville, Mass. USA 6th Gen
I am Daniel the 7th Gen from John McKenna 1766 of Monaghan

Now
Samuel 1795 Monaghan 1st Gen
Catherine McKenna (Condon)1821 Monaghan, married John Condon 1816 Ireland 2nd Gen
Charles 1870 PEI 3rd Gen
William Forbes 1897 PEI 4th Gen
Mary Condon (Lenz) 1930 Haverhill, Mass. USA married Alan Lenz 1928 Lawrence Mass 5th Gen
Daughter - Susan Lenz is my wife 6th generation from Samuel McKenna 1795 Monaghan
Obviously I am quite interested to see if John 1766 & Samuel 1795 are some how related.
