I am hoping my family fragment will look familiar to someone. My family that came to Hazleton, PA in the 1860's was composed of Cornelius Boyle (b. abt. 1813), his wife Bridget (b. 1813) and some of their children: Mary (b.4/ 1846), John W. (b. 1848), Bridget (b. 1858) and Bernard (b. 8/8/1860). Bridget, Mary,Bernard and Bridget arrived in 1863. John and probably Cornelius arrived in 1862. Mary married Patrick Higgins Brice (shortened form of Brislin?) who was born in Ireland in 3/1842. They lived in Hazle, PA and later in Oneida, PA. John married Mary (possibly Kernan)and lived in Hazleton, PA until his death sometime after 1930. Bridget married Michael McHugh (b. 10/1856 Ireland, arrived 1873)in 1874 and lived in Eckley, PA. She died in 1919 at her son James house in Wilks Barre, PA. Bernard married Ellen Jane Timney (b. 3/11/1864 Buck Mountain, PA)and lived in Drifton before moving to Freeland, PA. Bridget and Mary each gave birth to 12 children, so I'm sure their mother had more than 4. Possibly some of the older ones remained in Ireland. Her grandchildren's names included Rose, Patrick, John, Cornelius/Neale, Charles, James, Anne, Mary, Bridget, Michael, Alice, Agnes, Thomas, Bernard, Robert, William, Elizabeth, and Joseph. I would love to know what townland they came from and if there are other family members. I am grateful for any help you can give.
