Not sure if this helps but this was originally posted by my mother, Janet Goldrick Friend in 2002 on a different website.She has since passed away but she did extensive research onGoldrick's in Ireland.Not sure if there is a link to your family but the location and another Patrick Goldrick in the family make it a possibility.
Miles Goldrick was born in Virginia, Co. Cavan in August, 1833. His parents were Philip Goldrick (born about 1795) and Nancy Fitzsimons, also of Co. Cavan. His grandfather was Owen (Mc)Goldrick -- Owen was originally a McGoldrick, but when he and his 3 brothers encountered problems with the English authorities, they dropped the "Mc" from their name.
Philip Goldrick married Nancy Fitzsimons of Virginia, Co. Cavan. He was born abt. 1795 (based on age in the 1850 census) He emigrated to Philadelphia in 1848 with Miles, Peter and John Goldrick. He is recorded in Cumberland Co., NJ in the 1850 census. Nothing more about him has been discovered.
Several of Miles brothers also emigrated -- Patrick Goldrick (b. abt. 1823) was married in Co.Cavan to Ann Sheridan (b. abt. 1822; died in Cleveland in 1901) Children born in Cavan were Philip, Bridget and Mary. Philip emigrated before 1850 and died outside Philadelphia before 1860. Ann and the 3 children emigrated in 1851. A fourth child, Kate, was born in the Philadelphia area in 1857. After Patrick's death, Ann and the children relocated from Philadelphia to Cleveland, Ohio.
Owen Goldrick (b. 1824) probably arrived in Philadelphia before 1850. He is recorded in the 1850 census in southern NJ outside Philadelphia. He married Margaret Cooney in Cleveland, Ohio in 1851.
Peter Goldrick (b. 1825) was born in the parish of Mullagh, Virginia, Co. Cavan and emigrated with his father, Philip, and brothers Miles and John. He married Ann McNally in Cape May, NJ and moved to Cleveland where he served 2 terms on the Cleveland City Council in the 1860s and 1870s.
John Goldrick emigrated with Peter, Miles and Philip but nothing more is known of him.
A woman named Margaret Clark also emigrated with Peter, Miles and Philip. It is thought that she might have been a married sister.
