The Dempsey Family: County Wexford to Lee County, Illinois

Updated May 8, 2004

Thomas Leo Dempsey

The Dempsey Family of Lee County is descended from County Wexford, Ireland. The best information we have is that Lawrence Dempsey arrived at the Port of Philadelphia on 12 April 1850 aboard the Ship Monongahela. His parents, Edward and Catherine Dempsey lived at Ballinamona, The Ballagh, in County Wexford. Lawrence later married Margaret Campbell in Allegheny City, Pennsylvania, and moved to Amboy, Illinois where they eventually acquired a farm of over 200 acres. Jack Dempsey still resides on part of that farm today.

May your joys be as deep as the
ocean and your sorrows as light as
its foam.
