Devlin - Moved from Ireland to PA
Posted by: Steven Devlin (ID *****3362) Date: March 25, 2003 at 22:06:29
  of 1442

My Great-grandfather was born 1870's as Edward Devlin in PA. He married Agnes Blaney born 1880's in Scotland. They were married about 1920. Both of their fathers were born in the Irish Free State. Edward's Mother was born in PA. Agnes's mother was born in Irish free state. They had five kids - Margaret, Edward, Julia, Teresa, Joseph(my-grandfather).

What I need help with is locating their parents. I believe Edward's father came here at the age of 9 in 1850 leaving from Liverpool on the Philadelphia(ship) arriving in New York. If I am right his name was also Edward(my great-great-grandfather) but that is all I know. Please help fill the gaps.

Who did that little boy marry? How many kids did they have? When did Agnes get here? Who are her parents? I know she had a sister named Margaret(about 14 years older) that married William Haggerby/Haggerty and had four kids - Katherine, margaret, sarah, thomas.
