Michael Stapleton is said to have been in Ottawa County in the early 1850's. At this point we do not know where he came from in Ireland. Below listed are some Stapleton's who are buried in the St.Mary's Cemetery in Berlin/Marne.

of research on the Stapleton name.
Michael Patrick Joseph Stapleton
I see on your website that you would like to hear from anyone researching Stapleton in County Tipperary.
My g.g.g.grandfather David Stapleton married (3 Sep 1795) in Templemore,
Co. Tipperary according to his army record. He was born in about 1769 and
his wife's name was Lucinda and/or possibly Paulina Carlotta.
His children were:-
1. Richard Kyffin Carden b.1796 Portsmouth, Hampshire
2. Sarah b. 1798 Co.Tipperary
3. Paul b. 1800
4. John b. 1803
5. David b. 1807 (my g.g.grandfather)
6. William b. 1809 Dublin
7. Mary Ann b. 1814 Cadiz, Spain
8. Lucy b. 1816 at sea off Portsmouth, Hampshire
David Senior and all his sons served in either the Army, Navy or Coastguard.
I'd very interested in hearing from anyone else with Stapletons from Templemore
