Thought your page was excellent but I am also looking a Dowling side of my Family tree that started off in Mounthrath.I am not sure of this particular Dowlings first name but he was born in 1727 in Mounthrath and died in 1802.He had I think four childern,Mary,Daniel,John and Judilla.Mary married into the Donoghues of Maryborough where she had a son called Timothy Donoghue.
The interesting part about this story is that one of her brothers Daniel or John moved to America where I think he settled in Philadelphia.I am not sure whether he married in America or in Ireland before he left but he had a son called Thomas Henry Dowling who was born in 1794 in Philadelphia.Thomas moved to San Francisco later on and in 1853 moved to an Island off the coast called "Yerba Buena" island or "Goat Island".He then moved his family there later on from Philadelphia.The American government then took it over and used it as a navel base.
Two generations after Mary Dowling the Donoghue family received compensation from the American government for taking possession of the Island from Thomas Henry Dowling unlawfully.
If you can add to the above or need to know more please do not hesitate to contact me.
Regards
John Brown
A letter from Irish cousin Nellie Whelan ca.1949

According to this letter from Irish cousin Nellie Whelan, Thomas was born about 1804 in Philadelphia. His father, Daniel Dowling of Trumera, Mountrath, Queen County, Ireland, (and his mother), took him back to his ancestral home when he was about four years old. At some point, the family moved to Rothdale, Lancashire, England where the parents remained until their deaths, and Thomas married Margaret Victoria Singleton. Thomas joined others in 1845 in an Irish revolt against England and was in the battle at Ballingary. After the rebellion, he hid with relatives at Mountrath until he could make his way to America.

Thomas went to America about 1849 and his family joined him later about 1853. He bought a "rather dubious title" to Yerba Buena Island in San Francisco Bay from a Mr. Nye. He lived there with his family until the U.S. government ousted him about 1868. He died a few years later in New York.

Patricia Smith added this on 30 May 2009 letter to Henry and Laura Kane from Nellie Whelan.

In 1983 the family received a letter form Portlaoise. Leix, Eire addressed to the family of the late W.J. Baer. It was from a relative in Ireland.

    This is from information from the letter and what I know. She could not go any further than Michael Donohoe. She also said in the letter that Michael Dowling's son Daniel had one son
    whose name was Thomas Henry Dowling. He came to the U.S. and purchase Goat Island (Yerba Buena) in San Francisco Bay. the government seized it. He went to Washington, D.C. to seek redress. While he was there he died. His family had no idea where he was buried. That island sets right next to the Golden Gate Bridge. So if this is of any help I have a bit more, but not much. Let me know.

My grandmother certainly knew nothing of them. If she did she never said anything to us. She was very popular and all her sisters, nieces and nephews visited her. She always had several people staying with her throughout the year. She took in an aged cousin by the name of Mary Brady who was widowed from a man named Reynolds. She took care of her the last 15 years of her life. She was in her 90's when she died. Fr. Pat stayed with her in the summer of 1928 (circa) that's when the picture was taken. Her husband died when I was four (1947) and my dad's parents (mother 1916, father 1936) before I was born (1943).

She took care of her the last 15 years of her life. She was in her 90's when she died. Fr. Pat stayed with her in the summer of 1928 (circa) that's when the picture was taken. Her husband died when I was four (1947) and my dad's parents (mother 1916, father 1936) before I was born (1943). She was the only grandparent I knew ---- all I can say is that she was a wonderful and beautiful person. Nothing ever fazed her. The only thing that bothered her was electrical storms.

    1: Brian, My maternal grandmother was Anna Donohoe. Her father came to the U.S. from Ireland and she was born in 1886. She was married to W. J. Baer. She died in 1971. In 1983 the family received a letter form Portlaoise. Leix, Eire addressed to the family of the late W.J. Baer. It was from a relative in Ireland. She included a rudimentary family tree, with no dates, going back to 1725.

Donohoe married William J. Baer > Mary M. Baer married Adam E. Surkosky > Edward T. Surkosky.
    This is from information from the letter and what I know. She could not go any further than Michael Donohoe. She also said in the letter that Michael Dowling's son Daniel had one son
    whose name was Thomas Henry Dowling. He came to the U.S. and purchase Goat Island (Yerba Buena) in San Francisco Bay. the government seized it. He went to Washington, D.C. to seek redress. While he was there he died. His family had no idea where he was buried. That island sets right next to the Golden Gate Bridge. So if this is of any help I have a bit more, but not much. Let me know.

    1: Brian, My maternal grandmother was Anna Donohoe. Her father came to the U.S. from Ireland and she was born in 1886. She was married to W. J. Baer. She died in 1971. In 1983 the family received a letter form Portlaoise. Leix, Eire addressed to the family of the late W.J. Baer. It was from a relative in Ireland. She included a rudimentary family tree, with no dates, going back to 1725.

    This is from information from the letter and what I know. She could not go any further than Michael Donohoe. She also said in the letter that Michael Dowling's son Daniel had one son
    whose name was Thomas Henry Dowling. He came to the U.S. and purchase Goat Island (Yerba Buena) in San Francisco Bay. the government seized it. He went to Washington, D.C. to seek redress. While he was there he died. His family had no idea where he was buried. That island sets right next to the Golden Gate Bridge. So if this is of any help I have a bit more, but not much. Let me know.

My grandmother certainly knew nothing of them. If she did she never said anything to us. She was very popular and all her sisters, nieces and nephews visited her. She always had several people staying with her throughout the year. She took in an aged cousin by the name of Mary Brady who was widowed from a man named Reynolds. She took care of her the last 15 years of her life. She was in her 90's when she died. Fr. Pat stayed with her in the summer of 1928 (circa) that's when the picture was taken. Her husband died when I was four (1947) and my dad's parents (mother 1916, father 1936) before I was born (1943).

Narrative

Thomas came to the U.S. and purchased Goat Island (Yerba Buena) in San Francisco Bay. from a man named Nye. The government seized it and evicted him. He went to Washington, D.C. to seek redress. While he was there he died. His family had no idea where he was buried. That island sets right next to the Golden Gate Bridge.

The American government then took it over and used it as a naval base. Apparently, two generations after Mary Dowling, the Donoghue family received compensation from the American government for taking possession of the Island from Thomas Henry Dowling unlawfully.

---===oOo===---

The following story comes from; "The Legend of Yerba Buena Island," written by Marcia Edwards Boyes, printed by The Professional Press, Berkeley, California, copyright 1936, pps. 15 and 16. https://www.sfgenealogy.org/sf/history/hbybi.htm

A foot-note from "The Bay of San Francisco", vol. 1, p. 324 has the following:

"Every site suitable for defenses in the Bay of San Francisco was covered by private claims. The places chosen were Fort Point, Alcatraz, Goat Island, or Yerba Buena, and Angel Island. The Yerba Buena, or Goat Island, was claimed by one, Castro, who had placed goats to pasture there from 1841. Nathan Spear bought the island from Castro in 1847, and with Jack Fuller also kept goats on it until the early part of 1849, when Spear sold it to Edward A. King for a nominal sum. The property was later surveyed and re-surveyed and portions of it changed hands. Troops of the United States took possession of the island in 1867, disregarding the claims of Thomas J. Dowling and John C. Jennings, who alleged that they had occupied it since 1849. As late as 1878 it was made to appear that Dowling and Jennings had sold the island to Ben Brooks, E. Johnson and J. Turner, who claimed pay for it, alleging that the original title to the property had been derived in 1855 from the city of San Francisco, and an act of Congress in 1864."

In 1848, Thomas Dowling took possession of the property, with a view of becoming its owner through residence upon it. With him, a man named Jennings inhabited a small fenced-off portion, and neither infringed upon the rights of the other. Jenning's claim, however, afterward lapsed. Captain Gorham H. Nye then sold his nominal claim to Mr. Dowling and lived with him for many years. In 1855, Mr. Dowling's family came from the east to ioin him there in family residence until 1869 or 1870. His was an independent estate with a house on the northwest side, a truck garden and his own stock poultry. He "pulled across" to the mainland for grocery supplies. He was developing a stone quarry on the island, and in 1864 he leased it to John Center and Egbert Judson for the term of one year. The lease was not renewed, but the house where the quarry men boarded was taken possession of by one, J. Peltret, who claimed a right to the property. A feud arose that almost took pistols to settle.

The United States authorities, remembering their own claims, took steps to assert them. It had been specially provided in the articles of concession by the Mexican government that "all islands should become United States property and that certain sections of the territory ceded, among them Goat Island, should be exempt from the usual condition opening them to settlement." The occupants of the island were notified to vacate the premises and present their claims in the proper quarter in Washington, so 1869 saw all the settlers landed in San Francisco.

Mr. Dowling went to Washington and succeeded in selling one-quarter of his individual interest to J. Cook & Co., bankers, for about $50,000, and remained in the east where he died in 1871, without having established his claim.

The experiences of the Dowlings, when on the island, made a book of adventures. Mention has already been made of the venturesome young son of the pioneer Dowling, who was drowned while at play on one of the quarry barges that broke anchor,

Another son served as the envoy who "ferried" back and forth to the mainland for family supplies and also those of the quarry workmen.

An idea of the workmen's "grub fund" is obtained in the wage scale which paid ordinary workmen $5.00 a day, and the foreman received $5,000 a year.

RACKETEERING IS NOT NEW

Aside from the troubles the pioneer Dowling had with claim jumpers and litigation over property titles, he had at least two very close calls from desperados who infested the country. On one occasion, about the year 1850, a boat went over to the island containing two men who claimed to be castaways. Mr. Dowling had only a two-roomed house then, but being very hospitable, he readily accorded the food and shelter asked by the strangers.

After the evening meal, the men were shown to their room and the host retired to his own room adjoining, with only a thin partition separating them. Following his custom, Mr. Dowling was enjoying a long smoke, and was almost ready to knock the ashes from his pipe, when he heard a few alarming words from the next room, accompanied by the ominous clicking of pistols. Being cool headed, Mr. Dowling placed in readiness weapons, which in those days were kept handy, and awaited further happenings.

When his two guests considered he ought to be asleep, they approached his door and attempted to get in, but precaution had been taken against that. Mr. Dowling gave them warning to clear out and they ran down stairs. At the foot of the stairs they commenced firing into the house, and their one-time host followed them down stairs, returning fire until he drove them out of the house, which he barricaded and guarded all night.

Another incident of the same kind happened in broad daylight, when a man and a women called at the island, and while Mr. Dowling was conversing with the man, the woman held a pistol at his head and pulled the trigger. Luckily the cap snapped, Dowling grappled the pistol, and as the woman's companion came to her assistance, he knocked him down. Before the woman released hold on the pistol, Dowling was obliged to drag her over the beach on her back. He dashed for assistance and when he returned, the two foiled accomplices were gone.

THE BULL PATROL

Goat Island became a favorite resort for holiday-makers and at times they were a tax on the Dowlings. However, an ingenious device for keeping off intruders was adopted, by allowing a bull, with a marked antipathy for strangers to range about the island. His presence, together with his reputation had the desired effect. Finally the bull became a menace to those living on the island and a hunting party was organized to despatch him. Not finding him for a time, the party divided and one of the divisions came upon him suddenly in an open path. The situation was dangerous, but not without humor, the six sportsmen, armed to the teeth, taking refuge in the upper branches of neighboring trees. But in their haste, they dropped their weapons and these the bull trampled into uselessness. However, that evening Taurus was ingloriously noosed and executed in cold blood. A reminder of this terror of the island remains in the doggerel:

"On Goat Island's secret shore
Many's the hour we've whiled away
Listening to the breaker's roar,
Which haunts the beach, both night and day
When we landed on the isle,
Dowling met us with a smile,
And his bull gave us a roar
As we left Goat Island's shore."

THE SIGNAL TOWER

On the apex of the island there stands a signal tower and twenty-four hours of every day that signal tower is occupied by marine sentries, whose written log tells the daily observances.

It is hard to credit the island and its personnel correctly for the number of lives that have been saved by the prompt and efficient help proffered those in boat disasters. So many small craft have grounded on the shoal north of the island, by day and by night, and unfortunate experiences have been no more than that, when, lacking the prompt help, they would have been tragedies. Pioneer Dowling remembered that he had saved no less than thirty-nine lives during his residence on the island.

Its strategic position in the Bay center with the increasing traffic in water craft of all sorts, makes this feature alone, an important one of island service.

From the top of this above-mentioned signal tower, there is a panoramic view that is awe inspiring because of its beauty. For unreality and an impression of fairy land - that is this lookout view on a moonlight night when the wind is blowing. It is cold and clear, with star dust above and diamond dust scattered below on the sloping hills that irregularly sketch their luminous outline around the far reaches of the bay. Ferry boats, like glow worms on mirrors, creep between the shores. Far down to the south, a straight line of wee fairy lanterns tells us that in truth we see the seven-mile-long San Mateo Bridge across the lower San Francisco Bay. Now the picture is enriched by the tracery of steel in silhouette with rosettes of light, proclaiming that Yerba Buena is no longer a thing apart. The shuttling trains and motor traffic will soon become an accepted thing.

In 1983 the family received a letter form Portlaoise. Leix, Eire addressed to the family of the late W.J. Baer. It was from a relative in Ireland.

    This is from information from the letter and what I know. She could not go any further than Michael Donohoe. She also said in the letter that Michael Dowling's son Daniel had one son

Vertical lines were drawn and names inserted under name titles. Judith was my error, it should read Judilli. As far as the Dowlings go -- this was the first time we ever heard of them. My grandmother certainly knew nothing of them. If she did she never said anything to us. She was very popular and all her sisters, nieces and nephews visited her. She always had several people staying with her throughout the year. She took in an aged cousin by the name of Mary Brady who was widowed from a man named Reynolds. She took care of her the last 15 years of her life. She was in her 90's when she died. Fr. Pat stayed with her in the summer of 1928 (circa) that's when the picture was taken. Her husband died when I was four (1947) and my dad's parents (mother 1916, father 1936) before I was born (1943). She was the only grandparent I knew ---- all I can say is that she was a wonderful and beautiful person. Nothing ever fazed her. The only thing that bothered her was electrical storms.

    4. Brian, My mother's cousin's daughter went over several times after we received the letter. They brought back the following:
    Michael Dowling 1727-1802, wife's name unknown. Born Trumera Mauntrath; buried Clondairig Cemetery and his headstone can still be seen. Children: Thomas Henry Dowling (an only son) fought with Wm. Smith O'Brien and the United Irishmen at Ballingary. Fled to America and California. Bought an island in San Francisco Bay from a man named Nye, about 1853 (Yerba Buena - Goat Island). He quarried stone until evicted in 1867. He left his family and traveled to Washington to seek compensation. Died about 1870 in east coast area. Grave never found. Mrs. Twena V. M.

    1: Brian, My maternal grandmother was Anna Donohoe. Her father came to the U.S. from Ireland and she was born in 1886. She was married to W. J. Baer. She died in 1971. In 1983 the family received a letter form Portlaoise. Leix, Eire addressed to the family of the late W.J. Baer. It was from a relative in Ireland. She included a rudimentary family tree, with no dates, going back to 1725.

Donohoe married William J. Baer > Mary M. Baer married Adam E. Surkosky > Edward T. Surkosky.
    This is from information from the letter and what I know. She could not go any further than Michael Donohoe. She also said in the letter that Michael Dowling's son Daniel had one son
    whose name was Thomas Henry Dowling. He came to the U.S. and purchase Goat Island (Yerba Buena) in San Francisco Bay. the government seized it. He went to Washington, D.C. to seek redress. While he was there he died. His family had no idea where he was buried. That island sets right next to the Golden Gate Bridge. So if this is of any help I have a bit more, but not much. Let me know.

Daniel, grandfather of Mrs. T. V. W. Day. Elsie or Jennie, Thomas Henry and another boy born on Goat Island but was drowned in the bay. This is the Goat Island branch.

Vertical lines were drawn and names inserted under name titles. Judith was my error, it should read Judilli. As far as the Dowlings go -- this was the first time we ever heard of them. My grandmother certainly knew nothing of them. If she did she never said anything to us. She was very popular and all her sisters, nieces and nephews visited her. She always had several people staying with her throughout the year. She took in an aged cousin by the name of Mary Brady who was widowed from a man named Reynolds. She took care of her the last 15 years of her life. She was in her 90's when she died. Fr. Pat stayed with her in the summer of 1928 (circa) that's when the picture was taken. Her husband died when I was four (1947) and my dad's parents (mother 1916, father 1936) before I was born (1943). She was the only grandparent I knew ---- all I can say is that she was a wonderful and beautiful person. Nothing ever fazed her. The only thing that bothered her was electrical storms.

    4. Brian, My mother's cousin's daughter went over several times after we received the letter. They brought back the following:
    Michael Dowling 1727-1802, wife's name unknown. Born Trumera Mauntrath; buried Clondairig Cemetery and his headstone can still be seen. Children: Thomas Henry Dowling (an only son) fought with Wm. Smith O'Brien and the United Irishmen at Ballingary. Fled to America and California. Bought an island in San Francisco Bay from a man named Nye, about 1853 (Yerba Buena - Goat Island). He quarried stone until evicted in 1867. He left his family and traveled to Washington to seek compensation. Died about 1870 in east coast area. Grave never found. Mrs. Twena V. M.
