Maison O’Neill the scene of a family reunion Saturday

The history of the O'Neill family in Québec City dates back to the 18th century with the arrival of John O'Neill.

O'Neill, who was married to Julia Duffy O'Neill, received a grant of 180 acres, that was "all wood and brush," according to Dan Michaud, a current member of the O'Neill clan in Quebec by marriage.
