It appears your Christie Quinn may not the same as the "Christi" Quinn living in Natrona Co., Wyoming, in 1910, particularly since your Christie (Christopher) was still "at home" in 1910.

Your man was born in Ireland about 1883 and was brought to the States a year or two later - in time for the birth of his younger sister, Bridget in 1885.

According to the census, the "Christi" Quinn in Wyoming was born about 1880 in Ireland and immigrated in 1905. He may be the same as Christy Quinn, also born about 1880 in Ireland, who sailed on the S. S. "Ivernia" from Liverpool and arrived in Boston on 16 April 1908, not 1905. His destination and that of John Quinn on the same vessel was Denver, Colorado. John Quinn was born about 1884 in Ireland and was probably this Christie's younger brother, whereas your Christie's brother John was older, being born around 1877.

Perhaps there is a relationship between these individuals and your Christie Quinn which may be discovered later.

The following census records appear to relate to your specific Quinn family:

I have been unable to locate them in later census years. I would be happy to look further if you have any clues to help me along.

Kind regards,

Vern Paul
