I am looking to make a connection with either the Devlin or McManus families (descendants) from Roscrea, Co. Tipperary, Ireland.
Peter Devlin and Bridget Burk had at least three children in Roscrea, Co. Tipperary: Mary in 1854, Francis (Frank) in 1855-57, and John in 1857-58.
The family lived at Birchgrove Estate (just outside of Roscrea) and worked in the flax industry.Peter was brought down from Northern Ireland (either Antrim or Down) to convert the former whiskey distillery into a flax scutching mill (circa 1850s).
The family started a chain immigration to the U.S. (via Leeds, UK).
Mary Devlin married Thomas Hurst in 1882 at Birchgrove eventually settling in Union County, NJ.
Frank Devlin married Mary McManus (Roscrea native) in 1878 (in Leeds, UK) eventually settling in Philadelphia (Kensington & Port Richmond)
John Devlin married Annie Short in 1881 at Birchgrove.Annie diedin 1884 during childbirth in Philadelphia; John remarried Sarah Ryan (a Roscrea native) in 1892 and remained in Philadelphia.
Bridget Devlin died in 1893 at the age of 60 in Roscrea.Peter immigrated in 1894 with two of his grandchildren (John Bernard Devlin and Mary Hurst).He first lived with his daughter in New Jersey.The last documentation of Peter Devlin come from the 1910 U.S. Census in which he was living with his son and daughter-in-law John and Sarah Devlin in Philadelphia.
I have accumulated a great deal of information pertaining to these individuals.
I am trying to track down the graves of Peter, John, and Sarah Devlin.Any help would be most welcomed.
