Irish (at least the majority) to Watertown, NY

You are now reading a query from a "case of desperation", a genealogist looking for elusive relatives, most from Co. Sligo (but could be somewhere else), who ended up in Watertown, NY. These people came to Watertown via Canada (at least the Irish portion). The first of record arrived in Watertown about 1849 and the rest followed. The first group of names are ones we have records for:

Flynn
Burns
Graham

The second group of names are associated with the above:

Finnegan
McCarthy
McCarrick
Flynn (direct line is from Mayo and Sligo)
Benson
Kinney
Haley
Ward
Mitchell
Boucher
Hilts/Hiltz?
McGrann       
Irwin
Gray

I, or my wonderful cousins, would be thrilled to answer any questions on the above people, especially if we find a match :o).
