This blog is focused on the descendants of John O'Neill and Esther Ashmore of County Carlow, Ireland.
The majority of the descendants will be from Hugh O'Neill and Deborah Joyce, who left Ireland, ca 1805, and settled in what is now Noble County, Ohio.

5. The Methodist O'Neills
OK, let's get this out of the way. The Hugh O'Neill family were Methodists in Ireland and Methodists in the U. S. None of my family in any direction were Catholics as far as I can find, so don't look for any rosaries or St. Paddy's celebrations on this site. This photo is of the Methodist Church in Summerfield, Ohio, Noble County. The building burned a few years ago and only the cemetery survives. John O'Neill is buried there and a few other family members.
