Hi. I am descended from Merrigans who came to Massachusetts via Canada, and Patrick is a recurring first name. Do you know where in Ireland Patrick Merrigan hailed from???
My ancestor was Martin Merrigan, from Clonmacnoise in County Offaly -- though I don't know if he was born there. He came to Canada with wife Brigid Madden, and two sons: Michael and Patrick. At least one daughter was born somewhere in Canada, and they were in Hardwick (central) Massachusetts by 1850. There is a story that this Martin Merrigan bought the Massachusetts farm from a brother already in the US.... does this ring any bells for you?
