    1. [MARREN] Notice about Rootsweb Lists
    2. Jim Jackson
    3. This has been received from the Rootsweb administration: Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state. Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb. As an alternative to RootsWeb Mailing Lists, Ancestry message boards are a great option to network with others in the genealogy community. Message boards are available for free with an Ancestry registered account. Thank you for being part of the RootsWeb family and contributing to this community. Sincerely, The RootsWeb team We are presently setting up email groups at https://groups.io/. If there is interest in migrating this list to groups.io please respond to this message to that effect ASAP. Please have patience about the creation of your group. The response has been tremendous and it is taking time to get them all set up. Also, creation of this group will depend upon your response to this missive. With heavy hearts, Jim and Di

    1. [MARREN] Help Keep This List Active
    2. Jim Jackson
    3. This list has just been re-activated and we just want to encourage you all to make use of it in your family searches. A large number of Rootsweb lists have been made inactive due to no messages over a period of time. We want to keep as many lists active as we possibly can and your participation will help toward that goal. If you have a "brick wall" in your family search, send in a message to the list address with as much information as you have and let's see if someone may be able to help fill in those blanks. Best wishes, Jim and Di

    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: KevinO52 Surnames: Marren Stenson Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.marren/82.1.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hi Anne....thanks for quick response. I will correspond via this message board but also could take an e-mail at sligoson61@yahoo.com if you wish. Reason being is I have correspondence from a Sligo genealogist that I could forward to you. You would find it very interesting even if younger Terence isn't in your direct line. The marriage between Terence and Sybina, transcribed in Latin as you noted, was in 1858. One of the daughters, Bridget I believe, was born in 1868. Terence their son wasn't born until 1874, a full 18 years after their wedding year. The genealogist is sending a photocopy of Terence's birth certificate( should arrive within 5 days). Then I will know with all certainty. Younger Terence fathered five children in Sligo and didn't leave for America until 1905. He listed his brother Patrick as who he was going to stay with. He never did return to his family and fell on hard times. Became destitute in fact. This set of circumstances doesn't dovetail into your narra! tive so easily. By that I mean that the elder Terence died in 1897 and there's a death record for a Sabina Marren dying in 1890 which makes me doubt they saw all their children off on their journey to America. Last but not least. Am I open to the possibility there's an error on my end? Yes of course. I just want to get the facts correct. Somewhere I believe you wrote that Terence fathered two boys in America. Hmmm. That would be quite possible I suppose. Again, if you want me to send the genealogist's report to a different e- mail of yours just e-mail me at sligoson61@yahoo.com. We'll get to the bottom of this.

Author: aekeevanfox Surnames: Marren/Stenson Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.marren/82.1.1/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hello Kevin It's nice to make your acquaintance. I saw your other post re: the possibility of mutual Marren/Stenson ancestors from County Sligo. As I mentioned in my previous post I really don't have too much info on them except that my grandmother Anne/Annie Marren , whose parents were Terence and Sybina, left Ireland around 1898/99, at the age of 15 and sailed to NY where she was met by her sister Bridget. I also know that some other siblings, at least 1 or 2 brothers settled in New Haven, Ct. I believe that Terence & Sybina had 8 children, but beyond that my trail seems to run cold. So, I am very interested in learning what light you might be able to shed on our possible ancestral connection. Thank you for getting in touch. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Perhaps we can manage to piece together more of this puzzle and see how our family story continues to unfold.

Author: KevinO52 Surnames: Marren Stenson Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.marren/83/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Hi Anne, Hello all Marren's, My understanding of my lineage from Terence and Sabina is this: in 1874 they had a son, Terence. In 1897 he married my great grandmother Mary Hennigan. From that union came five children, one of which was my grandmother Bridget Marren born in 1899. There is no shortage of Bridget Marren's. The interesting part of your details Anne is the departure from Sligo and arrival in Connecticut. Feel free to contact me at sligoson61@yahoo.com. I hope you do because it could clarify some things.

Unfortunately, I have little information about those ancestors who stayed in Ireland and I have precious little more on those who immigrated to the US. I do know that the most common given names for boys seemed to be...Patrick, Thomas, Mark, Terrence and Martin. The favorite names for girls were Bridget and Anne...with the occasional Sabina. I do also know that my great grandparents were listed in the marriage banns in the Latin fashion as Terentius Marren and Sabina Stenson. I think that Sabina might have been from County Mayo. To be honest, Brian...I really don't know how relevant any of this information is...but...I cling to it because it's all I have. Thanks for your response to my original post and for your good wishes as I continue my journey to my family's past...maybe we'll cross paths again along the way... In the meantime... Cheers...

I have a branch of my family where one of the Marren girls married a Stenson. We may be distantly related if your Marren's hailed originally from Dawros, County Sligo. The nearest town to Dawros of any size would probably be Curry, County Sligo. Most of my Stenson relations today live over the border from Sligo, in and around Charleston, County Mayo. The surnames Marren and Stenson are both ubiquitous in that area, so we may be of the same family or not. Hope that helps.

In fact, I was not aware that any Marren's lived in County Clare. I had always assumed the name was virtually confined to the South Sligo/West Mayo border region. However, I had once come across something about the Marren Foundry in New York City. I believe at one time all New York City Department of Streets manhole covers were manufactured by their concern. I was told the name Marren was prominently stamped on each manhole cover. I understand that this earned many of the Marren kids who grew up in New York City a rather unflattering nickname. Ha ha!
