    1: Brian, My maternal grandmother was Anna Donohoe. Her father came to the U.S. from Ireland and she was born in 1886. She was married to W. J. Baer. She died in 1971.

    This is from information from the letter and what I know. She could not go any further than Michael Donohoe. She also said in the letter that Michael Dowling's son Daniel had one son
    whose name was Thomas Henry Dowling. He came to the U.S. and purchase Goat Island (Yerba Buena) in San Francisco Bay. the government seized it. He went to Washington, D.C. to seek redress. While he was there he died. His family had no idea where he was buried. That island sets right next to the Golden Gate Bridge. So if this is of any help I have a bit more, but not much. Let me know.

Narrative

The original Fr. Pat stayed with her in the summer of 1928 (circa) that's when the picture was taken. Her husband died when I was four (1947) and my dad's parents (mother 1916, father 1936) before I was born (1943). She was the only grandparent I knew ---- all I can say is that she was a wonderful and
beautiful person. Nothing ever fazed her. The only thing that bothered her was electrical storms.

    Citation Text: Collated by Brian Thomas Dowling (1955-) 25 Aug-2004:- Brian, Thought your page was excellent but I am also looking a Dowling side of my Family tree that started off in Mounthrath.I am not sure of this particular Dowlings first name but he was born in 1727 in Mounthrath and died in 1802.He had I think four childern,Mary,Daniel,John and Judilla.Mary married into the Donoghues of Maryborough where she had a son called Timothy Donoghue.
    The interesting part about this story is that one of her brothers Daniel or John moved to America where I think he settled in Philadelphia.I am not sure whether he married in America or in Ireland before he left but he had a son called Thomas Henry Dowling who was born in 1794 in Philadelphia.Thomas moved to San Francisco later on and in 1853 moved to an Island off the coast called "Yerba Buena" island or "Goat Island".He then moved his family there later on from Philadelphia.The American government then took it over and used it as a navel base.
    Two generations after Mary Dowling the Donoghue family received compensation from the American government for taking possession of the Island from Thomas Henry Dowling unlawfully.
    If you can add to the above or need to know more please do not hesitate to contact me. Regards, John Brown.
    A letter from Irish cousin Nellie Whelan ca.1949
    According to this letter from Irish cousin Nellie Whelan, Thomas was born about 1804 in Philadelphia. His father, Daniel Dowling of Trumera, Mountrath, Queen County, Ireland, (and his mother), took him back to his ancestral home when he was about four years old. At some point, the family moved to Rothdale, Lancashire, England where the parents remained until their deaths, and Thomas married Margaret Victoria Singleton. Thomas joined others in 1845 in an Irish revolt against England and was in the battle at Ballingary. After the rebellion, he hid with relatives at Mountrath until he could make his way to America.

    Thomas went to America about 1849 and his family joined him later about 1853. He bought a "rather dubious title" to Yerba Buena Island in San Francisco Bay from a Mr. Nye. He lived there with his family until the U.S. government ousted him about 1868. He died a few years later in New York.

Narrative

This possible child of Thomas Henry Dowling is not verified and may well have been confused with the child I have listed as John Benedict Dowling.

This story comes from; "The Legend of Yerba Buena Island," written by Marcia Edwards Boyes, printed by The Professional Press, Berkeley, California, copyright 1936, pps. 15 and 16. https://www.sfgenealogy.org/sf/history/hbybi.htm

Childhood Tragedy - Another grave labeled "D.R.A. Dowling, Died A.D. 1860" harbors a tragedy.

In the year 1853, Thomas Henry Dowling, perceiving the advantages of Yerba Buena Island, determined to establish his home there and did so. He saw a fortune in the strategic position which the island occupies and in the stone of which it is composed. Accordingly, he built a house and a dock and began the development of a quarry, residing there for many years. In the year 1860, one of the scows which were used for transporting stone to the city broke loose from its moorings in a storm. On that scow the child, who lies buried on the hill, was playing. The waves rose higher and higher in their fury. The scow was dashed against the rocks and the child swept overboard and drowned. When at last the remains were recovered they were buried where they now rest, on the hilltop.
