Note

Geraldine Felling Walsh: "The 26 hour shoeless walk in 1844 from Parish Moore to Sligo for my great grandfather Thomas, his sister Catherine and the two wee boys must have been a nightmare… I continue to wonder about Catherine. Why was Catherine still in Ireland if her parents went much earlier to Canada? Why would Catherine, one of the younger members (and a female) not travel with her parents? Possible reasons: "She was ill; she was in love with a local man and didn't want to go; she was the babysitter for Thomas' children. Perhaps Thomas' wife was sickly and they needed Catherine. To further add to the mystery, my genealogical record shows Catherine being born in County Clare!!! AND IT SHOWS HER DYING IN Cranbrook, B.C. Now I know Thomas' sister Catherine is buried in the Padua Cemetery so something is definitely wrong with this family record."

David Gaffaney: The children of Catherine and Patrick Killeen were born in Canada, except for Michael, who was born in New York, and Lizzie, who was born in Minnesota. The family apparently went back to Canada after having lived in New York and then re-entered the U.S. and settled in Minnesota. In her last years, Catherine lived with her daughter Lizzie (Mrs. Thomas C.) Armstrong in Fort Steele, British Columbia where she died at the age of 74 and Lizzie took her body back to Minnesota for burial in 1901. [In the 1880 census of Raymond Township, Stearns County, Minnesota, Catherine and her husband are both listed as the same age, and we have his birth year as 1826. She died in January at the age of 74, and it's most likely that her 75th birthday would have occurred some time later in the year, confirming that her birth year was 1826. Also, I don't know where the County Clare birth comes from. Seems more likely to have been Galway or Roscommon.] Cause of death was heart failure caused by the severeness of an attack of la grippe. Fort Steele and Cranbrook, B.C. are within a few miles of each other, along a road going northeast out of Idaho.

Fourth cousin Jill DaSilva (jfham1@gmail.com), Calgary, Alberta, Canada, 2/10/2016: Patrick Bunam KILLEEN and Catherine ROONEY were my 2nd great grandparents. Their youngest daughter, Bridget Elizabeth KILLEEN or (Elizabeth Bridget depending on what record you find) was my great grandmother. She married Thomas Charles ARMSTRONG, a tinsmith, who had been born in Ontario. They met in Minnesota, then moved to Montana and then to Fort Steele, British Columbia, then Cranbrook, British Columbia. Catherine (Rooney) KILLEEN, died of influenza in Cranbrook, British Columbia, and Thomas, who adored her, built a tin-lined coffin and shipped her body back to Padua, Minnesota so she could be buried there. There is a facsimile of Thomas's tinsmith shop built at Fort Steele, which is a historic town. My sisters and I, as kids, used to play in the buildings when it was just a ghost town. The shop contains a few items that he built, and there are some remnants of his work in nearby churches and towns. http://fortsteele.ca/attractions/trades/
