My great grandfathers name is Patrick Joseph McConnon he was born in 1862 we do know that his stated birth place according to his naturalization papers is Carrickmacross County Monaghan Ireland. He left Ireland in 1882 and landed in the port of Boston in May of that same year. His Mothers name was Mary Duffy his fathers name is Thomas McConnon in a few weeks I will have a complete list of his siblings so far the names I have are Peter,Michael,Mary and according to a relative three more which I should have the names in a few weeks as she is looking through the family papers. Only 2 siblings came to the USA.
One more note I have a document that states that my grandfather was indentured to a Patrick Brennan and Martin Brennan in 1877 for 3-1/2 years as an apprentice. Being that his lifetime employment was as a Shoemaker it would suggest that he was apprenticed in Shoemaking.
