  • Notes 
    • County Sligo is located in the province of Connacht, on the West Coast of Ireland. Sligo has a fine variety of mountains, lakes, and beaches. The Ox mountains to the West form a background to the coastal plain, while to the North, the landscape is dominated by steep-sided and flat topped limestone hills.

      There was also a Nancy Ann Doherty, also from County Sligo, Connaught, Ireland, born abt. 1818, and died March 10, 1888, Mara. She was the wife of Marcus James Healy, born about 1820 also in Sligo. Nancy and Marcus also arrived in Whitby, with a daughter Mary, born about 1840 in Sligo. They had six more children in the next few years. I believe that Michael and Nancy were siblings.

      There is also a Jane Doherty, married to Patrick McCorkell, Mara, their son John, married Mary Jane McDermott, d/o Patrick McDermott and Mary Hobson. Jane, born circa 1830.

      Before 1848, Michael & daughter Mary immigrate to Canada from County Sligo, Ireland. They settled in Darlington Twp, near Whitby.
      Early settlers naturally settled close to lakes and rivers. As the lots filled up, especially because of large families, people settled further inland. Whitby township was one of these areas.

      Michael then married Ellen Ann
      O' Boyle.
      Record at St. Gregory the Great Church, Oshawa, Ontario
      :On the 7th of January 1849....were married Michel Doherty, the widow of Nancy Cooper, and Ann O' Boyle, widow of William Connelly; witnesses: Thomas Ewart, Sarah Doherty; by J. B. Proulx."

      Michael & Ann then had seven more children from 1850 to 1862, Ellen, Mic, Patrick, William, Margaret, James, and John.
