Leitrim Costellos to PA USA circa 1850

Looking for any information on Costellos from Leitrim who emigrated to Pennsylvania in around 1850. I believe that parents William and Catherine remained in Ireland, but that sons Owen, and possibly Michael, William, Thomas, James and/or Joseph (sons born 1830's - 1840's) all went to PA in the US. They went to the Hazleton area and worked in coal mines.

I was told that some of these PA Costellos made a trip back home in the early 1900's, but that all of the Costellos in their area (do not know what parish or townland) had died or emigrated and that there were no more Costellos there.

Any information would be appreciated.
