Michael Crain, born about 1835 in Co. Sligo, IRL, immigrated with his widowed mother Atty and 8 siblings. The family settled in Leominster, where Atty ran a boarding house -- we've seen them listed on the 1850 census. In about 1855, Atty moved west to Wisconsin with most of the kids, but Michael stayed behind with his little brother James, b. 1846. Sound familiar? Descendants of Atty's other sons have gotten together, and we'd love to hear from Mike's people or Jim's people.
