Hello Linda,
The census info Thomas Kerwin sent to you is the correct info for this Richard Kerwin. "Dick" was my Uncle through marriage. Richard lived in Battle Creek, Calhoun Co MI through out his life, he & Patricia Harvey had five children. His folks were Francis Kerwin & Eloise Newell. Grand parents Cornelius Kerwin & Katherine Ryan. They lived near Petoskey, MI. The parents of Cornelius Kerwin were, Philip H Kirwan (b.ca1814 Ire d.1882 Niagra Co NY) & Margaret Scanlon (b.Ire d.Barker, NY). Both are buried at St Patrick Cemetery. Philip's parents were Martin Kirwan (b.ca.1790 Ire d.Tipperary, Ire) & Bridget Bourke (b.ca.1790 Ire d. Tipperary, Ire). This is basically all I know of the Kerwin family. But, maybe you will see a connection back to NY or Ireland. Patty
