HELP with Burns, Taylor, Donovan of Chicago
- I am searching for any information about my Irish ancestors, who lived in Chicago. My great-great-grandmother was Ella Johanna De Witt (nee. Burns). I am searching for information about her parents, and their parents.
What I know follows:
father - Malicha Burns, b.1859, Chicago
paternal grandfather - Daniel Burns, b.?, Ireland
paternal grandmother - Johanna Donovan, b.?, Ireland
mother - Johannah Taylor, b.1866, Illinois
maternal grandfather - David Taylor, b.1825, Ireland
maternal grandmother - Bridget nee?, b.1830, Ireland
I have Malicha's death certificate, which lists his parents names and that they were born in Ireland, but nothing else. Also, I haven't been able to find Malicha in any census before 1900.
I got the names of Johannah Taylor's parents from census records, but I don't know anything else beyond that.
I would appreciate any help that anyone can provide. I hope to hear from someone soon. If you have any questions, please let me know. Thanks.
Matthew De Witt
