History of the Ancestors, Families, and Descendants of Paris Patrick Comisford


Over 170 years ago, a new era began in the history of the Comisford family with the marriage of Paris Patrick Comisford to Rosette Helene Gaffney. The day following their wedding they boarded a ship for a long voyage across the Atlantic Ocean from Ireland to the new Americas—quite an adventure for a couple of newly-weds. Their first child was born shortly after arriving in New York City. The young family headed west and eventually acquired farmland in Hebron, Ohio, where they settled down to raise their growing family. Many of their descendants still call central Ohio home. This family history and genealogy offers a detailed account of the ancestors, families, and descendants of Paris Patrick Comisford. It traces the lineage of the Comisford family back to the American Colonies and examines their contribution to American history. As proud Americans, ancestors of the Comisford family have helped to blaze the way into the frontier and have helped preserve the American way of life through their participation in the many skirmishes, battles, and wars waged by this nation. The Comisford family has ties to eight United States Presidents, Lewis Wetzel, Daniel Boone, Clara Barton, Wyatt Earp, Benedict Arnold, the King of England, and countless other notable individuals. A wealth of photos, illustrations and charts, and a full name index add to the value of this work.
