NOTE! 3/27/10, a serious Connell now in Fayetteville, AR, researcher advised that Quienll was NOT a family name that he can find in connecting early Connell family members.
John Connell, wife Elizabeth Lewis and ten children migrated to Prescott, Ontario, Canada from southwestern Irish coastal, Schull, Cork, Ireland. Cork was one of the worst affected areas in the Great Famine of 1845-47, losing 200,000 persons (one-quarter of the total population) between 1841 and 1851. Of these, 150,000 died and 50,000 emigrated. Cork is where he and all children except Mary Ann, were born, migrating in late 1844 or early 1845. Ireland was part of England until the 1800 "Act of Union".
He, a farmer, is found on Canadian census 1851, 1861, widowed on 1871 census, page 550 Schedule C- Deaths, Greenville County, Augusta and Prescott newspaper notice of death and funeral. (daughter "Jennie's" 1880 U.S. census gives parents born in England and her 1914 obituary says she's oldest of ten, migrated when twelve, married in her twenties.
