James stopped in Dunkirk, NY on his way to Marshall MI, had two children Mary 1854 and John 1856 .
John went right to Marshall as far as I know. John had Mary b 1842 Ireland, Catherine b Quebec 1848,Bridget 1852 in Marshall, Margaret 1854 Marshall.
Siblings John, James, Bridget and Ellen-Eliz are all on the 1860 census for Marshall. I dont have spouses names, they seemed to be both widowed by 1860.
Ellen-Eliz or "Betsey" married a William Thomas who also stopped in NY on the way to Marshall, Mi. They had a daughter Mary b 1849 Ireland d 1879 Marshall.
Bridget b 1814 hadnt married d 1877 in Marshall. I dont know what happened to Margaret.
Parents of the siblings: James Martin, Catherine Moriarty all of Garrane, Co Kerry, west of Mt Brandon on the Dingle Peninsula.
Would love to hear from anyone with connections to this family.
