|Genealogy of the
John & Margaret (Rohan) Dunn Family
Introduction to the family of John & Margaret (Rohan) Dunn
John & Margaret (Rohan) Dunn were born in Queens County (County Laois), Ireland and
emigrated to The United States in the 1830s. By about 1835, they were residents of Middletown,
CT, and appear in the 1840 US Census for Middletown. To date, we have not found ship
records indicating when they left Ireland, and only have cursory information on their ancestors.
According to John Dunn's death certificate, his parents were Patrick and Mary Dunn, and
Margaret's death certificate indicates that her father was John Rohan. Their Tombstone in St.
John's Old Cemetery in Middletown, CT indicates that they were natives of Maryborough,
Queens County, Ireland.
One of their children, Mark Francis Dunn, married Mary F. Greene, a descendant of Edward &
Esther (Lalor) Greene. Another child, Catherine Dunn, married John Scully, a son of Martin &
Jane (Cavanaugh) Scully.
The Scully-Greene-Dunn Family Association is currently completing a book entitled The
Descendants of John & Margaret (Rohan) Dunn of Maryborough, Queens County, Ireland and
Middletown, CT. We hope to publish the book in 2007. Anyone with information on the family,
including family stories and traditions, photographs, or possible updates to the genealogy is
encouraged to contact Thomas P. Langdon. More information about this publication will be
