My Devlin ancestors came from Ireland (don’t know where) to Canada (don’t know where!) to Jenkins Twp., Luzerne Co., Pennsylvania. I am trying to find out where in Ireland these Devlins were from. Also, I only know descendants of Thomas 3 (9below) – my line. We do not have any information on any of the others! I am hoping to find some connections and recover this lost family. This information is from the PA censuses, which confirms some of my father’s recollections.
