2nd Great Grandfather Joseph Hurley born 1834 Kilkenny, Ireland he died Dec. 1909, his parents were William John Hurley (went by John) and Margaret Cassin, Brother Michael Hurley b. 1832 Kilkenny, Ireland. I believe Michael and Joseph immigrated in 1851.
Joseph married a Catherine Wall born about 1845 Clare, Ireland., Parents were Michael Wall and Catherine O'Connor. I believe they immigrated around 1846. She died in 1890's .Joseph and Catherine are buried in the St.Columban Cemetery and Michael is buried in St. James Cemetery Seaforth, Ont with his 2 wives Ann McCarten(y) and Margaret Barry.
I have yet to find a marriage certificate for Joseph and Catherine but I believe they were married in 1861. Joseph was a laborer and lived in St.Columban up until his wife's death, then moved to Brantford,Ont.
Any details on their connection with the community would be greatly appreciated.
