ebook  History of Watertown, Wisconsin


Daly, Reynolds


My great-great-grandparents, Barnaby Reynolds and Monica Brown Reynolds settled in Watertown in 1846, coming from Illinois, with their daughter Martha and (probably) their son John Reynolds.  Barnaby and John ran a nursery in Watertown for many years.


Meanwhile, my great-grandfather-to-be, Timothy Daly, from County Kerry, IRELAND, by way of Smethport PA, arrived at about the same time, probably traveling with his parents James Daly and Mary MacGillycuddy Daly, who had just sold their land in Smethport (all are in the 1850 census of Watertown).


Timothy and Martha were married in St. Bernard's Catholic Church in June, 1847.  Barnaby and Monica are buried just inside the gate to St. Bernard's Cemetery.  She lived until nearly 100.  Both she and her husband were born in Maryland in the 18th century.  They were married in Bardstown KY in 1813.  Barnaby fought in the War of 1812, at the Battle of New Orleans.


Additionally, my Bohan family arrived in 1846 from Tipperary, settling to the east of Watertown, in Hartford.  My grandfather Edmond Bohan married the daughter of Tim Daly and Martha Reynolds: Emma.
