My grandfather was John Patrick Feerick. He lived with his family in County Mayo Ireland. He lived on a small farm between Conn and Ballinrobe. He has two brothers Mike Feerick and Patrick Feerick. He came to America before the first world war with his brother Mike Feerick. Patrick stayed in Ireland to tend to the farm. Mike and my grandfather were processed at Ellis Island in NY. My grandfather married Agnes Hughes from County Mayo. They lived in Sunnyside, Queens. They raised five children, John, Patrick, Eugene, Thomas, and Maureen. I am the son of Eugene.
