Looking for G.G.G.Grandmother.

My earliest known grandmother was named Sarah Kelly.She came to America in the late 1820's. I don't know if she was sent for by her husband to be, Patrick O'Neil,or he meant her once she arrived in Pennsylvania. They were married in the early 1830's, in St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Pottsville Pennsylvania. I found one Sarah Kelly on a passenger list. Patrick O'Neil was reportedly from County Carlow and came to America with a relative of the same name, possibly a father. They were coal miners. Sarah and Patrick had a son Peter Patrick O'Neil. She may have died in childbirth or soon afterward. I know O'Neil and Kelly makes for hard research. But I will start in County Carlow and go from there. Any help getting started will certainly help this old Yank. Thanks.
