    Dear June Ferguson,

    I was excited to find the following information that you have posted on www.my-ged.com.

    Maria Dionisia Owens y O' LAWLOR
    · BORN: 24 JUN 1876,
    · DIED: ,
    · BURIED: ,
    · MARRIED: · Nicolas, Marques de MONTALVO, 11 NOV 1876,
    Pedro de Alcántara, Marques de MONTALVO
    Angel de MONTALVO
    Nicolas de MONTALVO
    Maria de la Encarnacion Fernandes de CÓRDOBA

    I can tell you more about Maria's parents and family. The information you have here about her children is new to me.

    In the late 1700s two young brothers, Joseph and James O'Lawlor, were orphaned and the possessions of their noble Irish family were dispersed by a British persecution. The brothers left Ireland and entered military training in Spain. They went on to fight in the war against Napoleon (1808-1814 in Spain). James died early in the war but I am pretty sure he left posterity. Joseph rose to the rank of field marshal in the war. After the war, in 1817, he married Dionisia Caballero Crooke of Malaga, Spain. Their children included

    Dionisia, Fernando, Maria del Carmen, Elena, Maria de la Encarnacion, Jose, Juan, and Maria de la Concepcion.

    Dionisia, the oldest, was born in Granada, Spain, on June 14, 1819. She married Tomas Owens O'Shea, who held the title "Gran Cruz de Carlos III," on December 9, 1838. They had at least two children: Dionisia Owens O'Lawlor, born January 24, 1846, and Jose Owens O'Lawlor, married 1879. The daughter, Dionisia, married Nicolas Fernandez de Cordoba Alvarez, 9th Marques de Montalvo, on November 11, 1876.

    So this last Dionisia is the one you have listed; note the correction in her birthdate.
    I would be very interested to know what your connection is with this family. I can also tell you more about the O'Lawlor family if you are interested, including the source of my information, which came from a living descendant of Joseph.

    Warm regards,
    Gary Lawlor
