BURNELL posted by Jim Burnell on Tuesday, April 14, 1998

Looking for clues to Henry BURNELL, my g-grandfather. He allegedly came from Ireland with his two brothers (stowed away) and worked in the logging camps of Northern Tier with one of the brothers (The third brother headed toward Lake Erie.) I'm not even sure of the year. My grandfather - Roy Wheeler BURNELL, born 1894 - claimed Potter County as an origin. The family "legend" is that Henry and his brothers were fleeing the law when they came to the States. If that is true, I suppose it's possible that he even changed his name. So I am interested in finding anyone who might have a similar story in their background. This may be my toughest line to crack and an important one, since it's my own surname! Help greatly appreciated.
