Micheal Rooney and his wife Catherine Caulfield, sailed from Ireland around 1837, with their children. They were bound for New York, but their ship sprung a leak and they were rescued by a passing ship, just as their ship was sinking. They were taken to Quebec instead and settled in Farrellton, Wakefield Township, Ottawa, Quebec, Canada. Three of their children married Tracy siblings and farmed in Farrellton for 30 years. Micheal died in Quebec and the rest of the clan moved to Stearns County, Minnesota in 1867.
