    I do not think that Fr. Monnelly was transported in 1798.
    In my family story he was working on the Eastren shore of Maryland in 1803. Regards, John C. Munnelly

    Thanks for the opportunity to comment. I live in Kalamazoo, MI, served in the U.S. Army for 33-years retiring as Colonel in 1980. I look forward to hearing from other Munnelly’s or derivitives of the name.Respectfully, John Munnelly
