Author: mcguan_1 Surnames: Carlon, Newman, Ruddy, McGuan Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.carlon/13.2.2.2.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hi, Joe, I tried to contact you personally. I would love to be able to get copies of the pictures you have of the Carlon's. I would pay any expenses. I am meeting at the end of August with some of my husband's family that are also decendants of Hugh and Christina Carlon. I was in Rankin three weeks ago and found the graves of Ellen Newman, Bridget Ruddy, and Thomas Carlon, Christine McGuan's siblings. I am curious which Philip Carlon (1854-1930) and Mary Carlon (1845-1921) same stone, is? Are they brother and sister? Any help would be appreciated! There are two Philip Carolan's buried at Mt. Carmel Cemetery in Morris. Hope to hear from you. Mary Jo McGuan Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

Author: jwnewman Surnames: Carlon, Carolan, Newman, McGuan, Ruddy Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.carlon/13.2.2.2/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Greetings, Carlon "cousins", especially posters in this thread, mcguan_1, jcbeans and carlonlaw: I am descended from Hugh Carlon (1805-1868, Grundy Co., IL) through his daughter Ellen Theresa Carlon (1853-1936). After her brother Thomas J. Carlon moved to Pigeon Grove Township near Rankin, IL, Ellen joined him to keep house. In 1878 Ellen married my great grandfather John Newman (1850-1937) who was the son of an "old settler" of Norman Township, Grundy Co., IL., John A. Newman (1816-1900). Ellen T. Carlon and John Newman settled in Pigeon Grove Township and generated "hundreds" of descendents. (I have early 20th century plat maps showing their farm near or adjacent to that of Phillip Carlon, James Carlon, Thomas Carlon, and Dennis Murray, the father of Anne Murray, spouse of Albert P. Carlon.) There were strong family connections between the Carlon's and the Newman's in both Grundy County and the Rankin area and also with another family mentioned in this thread, the McGuan's of Grundy Co, IL. A daughter of Hugh Carlon, Christina, married Peter McGuan. This very weekend, Sunday, August 3, 2008, we are holding the 68th annual Newman-Carlon Family Weekend in Rankin, IL. (I am the coordinator this year and you are welcome to contact me at jwnewman@ameritech.net for further info.) We also have family connections with the other Carlon branch outlined in this thread: Phillip Carlon>James L Carlon>Albert Carlon>thru succeeding generations. Like mcguan_1, I have struggled to link Hugh Carlon in Grundy and Phillip Carlon in Rankin. Absent any concrete proof, I believe they are brothers, or perhaps first cousins, who lived on neighboring farms in Grundy Co, before Phillip came to Rankin. Intriguingly, in the 1870 census Hugh's widow Christiana lives in the farm adjacent to Phillip, and they are both listed in the census with the last name, Carolan, that occasionally-seen variant of Carlon. For our McGuan connection, I have two photos taken in Grundy Co which appear to date to about 1900-1910. Fortunately, they are well-captioned and include Peter and Christina Carlon McGuan and their children Stella, Ed and Allie (George Alphonsus). Also included are some of Christina's siblings, Bridget Carlon Ruddy, Catherine Carlon and Hugh Carlon. The photo is marked as having been taken by another sibling, Nancy Carlon, a twin to Hugh. Also included is Bridget's daughter Ethel and a gentleman named Mike Allen. Bridget moved to the Rankin area and married Thomas Ruddy. The photos were located in family files in Rankin and perhaps they were an update from siblings and cousins in Grundy to those in Rankin. I would be delighted to share further information. Joe Newman. Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.

They are related to the Boyce clan which also hails from county Donegal. In fact they had this thing about intermarriage. Rather creepy but true. Our family has an eye defect that is found only when there have been cousins that marry that are too close in relation. Ours was James Carlan and Jennie Boyce. They were first cousins. I am not sure if the spellings have anything to do with where the Carlon, Carlin, Carland and so on, came from but you might look in County Donegal. My papa McEnerny use to sing a little song to tease my grandma about where her family came from, it went like this. We hail from County Donegal, Were we eat potatoes...skins and all.

    2. Anne Marie
    3. Hello Murph, I am still searching for the origin of my James Carlan b. 1846 in Ireland. Is there anything that points to Carlan having come from County Donegal. I had orginally thought that he came from County Clare until I received an email from a Carlan descentent that hailed from Clare and had no knowledge of any James and I guess her tree went pretty far. I found out that my James Carlan was a cousin to the Boyce (Denis b. 1805) of County Donegal. I have said all of that to say that Iam wondering if even extended families stayed pretty close to one another in those days.
