The above marriage record comes from Quebec, Vital and Church Records (Droulin Collection), 1621-1967 as it appears on the Ancestry.com web site.  It is the record of the marriage of Edward Thomas Dunn to Mary Frances Connally in Quebec on 8 Aug 1863 and lists her parents as Thomas John Connolly and Anne Garrity.

No record has been found of Anne Garrity being in Pensacola FL, but John Connolly, name appears in the burial list of St. Michael's Cemetery and his name appears on the wall inside the below burial crypt for the Dunn family in that cemetery.


Two of Mary Francis Connally's sisters came to Pensacola with their father:

Josephine B. Connolly, born Feb 1864  with death unknown, married John Joseph Pereira, born Dec 1859 in New York and died before 1910 in Mobile AL, in 1883.  They lived in Mobile AL where her husband worked as a marine engineer. They had four children, two boys and two girls.

McGuire, born 1842 in Florida and died 28 Feb 1887 in Pensacola FL, on 14 Apr 1873 in Pensacola FL.  They lived in Pensacola FL where her husband worked as a marine engineer.  I believe they had six children, three boys and three girls.
