I am researching the O'Boyle or Boyle family of San Patricio County, Texas. According to the Handbook of Texas Online, Andrew Michael Boyle (1818-1871) was the son of Hugh and Maria (Kelly) O'Boyle of County Mayo, Ireland. After his mother's death, his father deserted the family and he and his siblights immigrated to New York in 1832 and in 1834 came to Texas. He was spared from the Goliad Massacre.
The reason for my interest is that I descend from John Hart, original pioneer of San Patricio County, who had a Mexican landgrant. One branch of the family state that his wife was Bridget McCauley while another branch states that his wife was Bridget O'Boyle. Bridget was born in 1800 in Ireland and died on 12 January 1879, supposedly in San Patricio, San Patricio County, and is buried at the Papalote Catholic Cemetery in Papalote, Bee County, Texas.
Bridget married secondly a Mr. Smith and they had a son, Thomas Smith, who died young by gunshot. Mr. Smith deserted his wife. Need name of Mr. Smith and date/place of their marriage.
