MaryAnn Johansen My father George Jeremiah Courtney, sailed from Liverpool, England, on July 14,1887. His brother David Courtney was with him. George was 14 and David was 13 yrs old. They were a part of a group of hundreds of children escaping the famine in Ireland and sailed to Canada on the S.S.Sarmation under the care of R.C. Cardinal Manning and landed in Quebec. They arrived on July 24, 1887. From there they were dispersed to families in Canada to hopefully go to school and also to labor on the farms. George was sent to stay with Mr. & Mrs. Pat Manion in Osceola, in the Ottawa valley area. David was sent to another home and the boys lost touch with each other for many years.

George, David, their mother, and perhaps other children were living in a 'poor house' in Liverpool. They had moved from Ireland to England to try to find relief from poverty. We have tentatively traced them back that far but cannot find any records of birth in Ireland. We have been unable to find records back to 1873. George's story of his life did not agree with Davids. George said he was born in Tipperrary Ireland but we can't confirm that. David said he was born in England.
Both George and David, after some terrible years as children, married and had children and led reasonably happy lives. David had one daughter Mae and George had three,Anthony Gale, Jeremiah and Mary Ann,[thats me].
