List of Passengers on board the British Barque John Stamp Londonderry, Ireland to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 23 June 1832 http://www.immigrantships.net/v10/1800v10/johnstamp18320623.htmlhttp://www.immigrantships.net/v10/1800v10/johnstamp18320623.html Duffy’s Cut What this seems to point to is that a significant portion of these boys – the passenger list of the John Stamp is very peculiar in consisting mainly of young single males. These ‘expendable’ Irish went forgotten for over a hundred and fifty years before someone started to wonder what happened to them but did their families back in Derry, Donegal and Tyrone wonder, too? There does not seem to have been any inquiries into missing family members. Did the RR company answer all inquiries with a standard ‘whereabouts unknown’?A sad tale of deceit and coverup of deaths of those thought to be unimportant to the world.

These rarer specimens, according to Griffiths Evaluation, are William Devine, Robert Ewing, John Doak, David and William Patchell (all from County Donegal); all from the John Stamp.
