That would be one of my Quinns. The parents names for my Quinns were John Patrick Quinn and Bridget Nancy Murphy. Here in the US, when the children listed their names on any important paperwork, they were listed as John and Bridget. But in Ireland they were known as Patrick and Nancy. Nancy was born in Leghowney. Patrick, we are not sure where he was born, but it was somewhere in the area of Leghowney, Laghey, Ballintra.
Patrick and Nancy seem to have had 2 "batches" of children. My gr-grandfather James was born in 1828. But we have found children that were born as late as 1855.
Your Joseph would either be one of their children or their grandchildren.
Hope to hear from you!
