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.

38. Descendant of Deborah O'Neill
Hugh O'Neill's daughter Deborah married John Dearden in Zanesville, Ohio, on May 25, 1833, and the Deardens had only a daughter, so far as we know, Deborah Dearden, born Nov. 23, 1840. [Notice there are lots of Deborahs?]
Deborah Dearden married Ambrose Middleton, had several children, and ended up in Lancaster, Ohio. Here is her headstone, the only child of Deborah O'Neill.
