Gartland Fox Families - Part 2

Back on October 14, 2010, I posted information about the Gartland-McLaughlin marriages in Newport, New York, at the Irish Settlement.  That information has good solid sourcing as does the fact that James Gartland was still living in Newport, New York, in 1870 at the age of 93.  He was living with his daughter, Mary Ellen Gartland McLaughlin, and son-in-law, James McLaughlin, with some of their children.  My great-great grandfather, Thomas Michael McLaughlin  and his brother James were already out of the household by then.  In fact, Thomas was already in or headed to Nevada by then. 

My McLaughlin information is so easy to find and track because another researcher already pieced all of the information together.  Since I know where to look, I can find the McLaughlin's easily in U.S. Census data.  What about my Gartland's and Fox's?  I guess I am going to give it a try and piece the information together.  Let's see how far I get.  It could take a while.

When I search Ireland for Gartlan's or Gartland's, I find them in County Monaghan.  I specifically find references to Gartlan's in Carrickmacross.  There is no doubt that a Google Search places that name in that location even today.

What's more interesting is what I found next:

Graveyard / Cemetery / Burial Ground / Kabristan

Fox Margaret Aghnamullen Church of Ireland County Monaghan
Fox Margaret J Aghnamullen Church of Ireland County Monaghan
Fox Mary Latton RC Chapel County Monaghan
Fox Michael Lisiniksy RC Chapel County Monaghan
Fox Owen Lisiniksy RC Chapel County Monaghan
Fox Patrick Latton RC Chapel County Monaghan
Fox Patrick Latton RC Chapel County Monaghan
Fox Peter Latton RC Chapel County Monaghan
Fox Stella Lisiniksy RC Chapel County Monaghan
Fox Susan Latton RC Chapel County Monaghan
Gartlan Alice Donaghmoyne Church County Monaghan
Gartlan Bryan Donaghmoyne Church County Monaghan
Gartlan Daniel Donaghmoyne Church County Monaghan
Gartlan James Donaghmoyne Church County Monaghan
Gartlan James Donaghmoyne Church County Monaghan
Gartlan John Killahear Graveyard County Monaghan
Gartlan Owen Donaghmoyne Church County Monaghan
Gartlan Patrick Donaghmoyne Church County Monaghan
Gartlan Sylvester Donaghmoyne Church County Monaghan

So this is not the only site I found that has Gartlan and Fox information.  The information online is almost overwhelming and difficult to work through.  Are any of these Fox's and Gartlan's my ancestors?  I have no idea.  They all come up on the same page though.  That's a coincidence for sure.... or is it?  The Gartlan's/Gartland's and Fox's are sure to have known each other in Ireland. 

What happens next?  I need to carve out some time to look through what is available online and see if I can find someone who knows the connection that the Gartlan's/Gartland's and Fox's have from Ireland to Newport, New York.  In this case, I think records still exist just based on the sheer volume that you can find online.
