I am looking for information on Patrick Cashel born 1838 in Ireland. He came to the US in 1848. He sailed with a Jas. Cashel (age 30), Ann (age 8), and Edwin (age 12).
I find Patrick (age 11) on the 1850 US Census living with the Titus family in New Jersey, but can not find James, Ann, or Edwin.
Patrick married Bridget Coleman (born 1840 in Ireland and came to the US sometime between 1850 and 1860).
They had children: John, Thomas, William, Daniel and Margaret. John died before 1900, Margaret died as a young girl. Thomas settled in Mercer County, New Jersey,William settled in Brooklyn, Kings County, New York, and Daniel settled in New Jersey and never married.
I am looking for any information on these family members. I would love to know where in Ireland they came from, what happen to James, Ann, and Edwin - and if they were siblings or cousins. Who Patrick's father was and anything on Bridget Coleman. These have been my brick wall for years now. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
