    I am looking for more information: Michael and Bridget’s parents. I think Bridget’s parents are Michael Carew and Ann Hogan. Do you have any info on them. I would certainly appreciate it. Thank you very Much Marilyn (MacDonald) Snedden 780-986-3081 Leduc AB


    1. If you look at the 2 posts previous to this one, I have information about them. I have seen that Ann’s last name is Hogan but haven’t been able to verify this. If you can confirm this I would appreciate it if you would share with me. I have found the doctor’s notes from the trip over in which Ann gave birth on the ship. It is in the book- Medical Journal of the Emigrant Ship Fortitude, by Francis Conin, R.N. Thank you for reading this post.
