FEARON Family History

This unusual and interesting name is of Old French origin, introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066. It is an occupational surname for a worker in iron, a blacksmith, and derives from the Old French term "ferron, feron", ironmonger, smith, from the Latin "ferro", a derivative of "ferrum", iron. The English surname from this source has two forms, Fearon and Feron, while the cognate French forms range from Ferron, Ferronier and Fernier to the diminutives Fer(r)onet, Fernez, and Fer(ro)nel.

I'm looking for the parents of Daniel H Fearon. He was born in (I believe) Northern Ireland in 1849. He died in 1910 in Minnesota.
