I have been waiting all day to get home and reply to this message! It was such a delight to see this obituary posted to my query! I have been looking for more information regarding Patrick for some time.
I had found census reports and mentions online from the cemetery which he is buried at. I found a note about his marriage to Ellen. I had found information about Johannah a while back too including her obituary, death cert and image of her grave stone.
I always suspected the two were related as they were both residing in Salisbury for a time and both shared the same surname and the same spelling of it which I believe ended up being unique to the family members descending from Patrick of Connecticut.
Now the obit you provided mentioning Daniel! I am totally convinced this was his nephew and that Johannah and Patrick were siblings. It is unfortunate that there is no mention of surviving siblings of Patrick or preceding in death siblings in Johannahs obituaries. I feel i am on the hunt again all thanks to you! What was the source of this obit? I was told that death certs were not required until a few years after Patrick's death so I am not sure ill have luck finding one! I recall trying both the Canaan and North Canaan town clerks with no success.
Hopefully i can use Johannahs death cert to continue the hunt! Thanks so much for the help!
