I have a Patrick James Campbell whom family legends tell was born in Carrickmacross Ireland. His birthdate is given as 23 Dec 1840 He was be my Great Great Grandfather.
Oral history says he and his younger sister came to Canada in 1858.The name of that sister is lost to time. He and the sister had fought over who would hold the address of a "rich uncle" in New York.However they lost the address, and somehow ended up in Cobourg Ontario.
If anyone had information on this family, i'd love to hear from them.
