Looking for any connection to the following:

James Overn, born 1798
Ann Granger Overn, born 1871
John Overn, born 1822
Margaret Overn, born 1827
Ann Overn, born 1828
James Overn, born 1830
Catherine Overn, born Aug. 23, 1833, died June 26, 1913
(Catherine later married James Quinn in America)

Our family says they were from County Fermanagh, Ireland. However, I have a ship passenger list that shows them coming from St. John, NB, sailing on August 21, 1835, on the Schooner Congress, bound for Boston, MA

We cannot find this particular voyage listed in any of the ship lists, and cannot find where the Overn family is actually from. Can you help?
