I am wondering if there could be a connection to our family. My g-g-grandmother was Kate Flood. According to her marriage license for her second marriage in 1878 in New York City, her parents were John Flood and Bridget McGovern. On the 1880 census she says her parents were both from Ireland. She had married once before, in 1868. I have found several ship manifests with Kate Floods, but none with John and Bridget, so I suspect she immigrated alone, but have no proof. I have no info about where the family originated in Ireland.
