1.6 Edward, 1.7 Robert, 1.8 Daniel, 1.9 Francis

No known current descendants. All their details are on this page.

There were nine children, one daughter first, followed by 8 sons. Of those, Edward (6th child) and Robert McEvoy (7th child), did not marry. Daniel McEvoy (8th child) had 5 children but there seem to be no descendants from that family-2 children died young and 3 daughters appear not to have married. Francis (9th child) had 4 children, one of whom, Harrold, died at Gallipoli but the other children also appear to have had no issue. This means that of Dennis and Ann Jane Carson's 9 children, only the first 5, Catherine, John, William, Joseph and Dennis (twins) have current descendants.

    Louisa's sister, Mary Cormack, born in Banff Scotland in 1857, married Martin Dobeli, a Swiss immigrant who came to Australia on the Northern Monarch. They had children in South Australia and later moved to Melbourne, Victoria. Mary died in Melbourne in March, 1927 but there are many Cormacks in Victoria. Other Cormacks in Canada are also researching the family.

    Many thanks to John Kilmartin (sadly missed, died October, 2009) for researching most of the family information. I have also added details from 'A Wee Deoch and Doris, The Family of Doris Amy Munro nee McEvoy' by Robert J. Munro (with thanks), some from the internet taken on trust and from a sheet of information I have which was written in 1976 by Allan McEvoy, born 1902. Please email me with details of any mistakes you find.
