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 complete list of his siblings names I have are Julia,Peter,Michael,Mary and Catherine as she is looking through the family papers. Only 2 came to the USA. My Great-Granfather and His sister Catherine
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.
