I am doing some research for a friend, we really have a limted amount of knowledge on his family but here is what I have been able to put together.I really hope that somewhere there is some more info and additional family info.
John (A.?) Kerin (lived around Dane County Wisconsin) belived to been born about 1911.His father was Michael O'kerin belived to be from Dublin Ireland.Michael surname was changed to Kerin when he came to America.Michael was sponsered by a cousin in Cooksville Wisconsin.Now we are not for sure if the following were siblings to John or his father Michael:sister: Margaret lived around Oconomowoc Wisconsin.brother: Michael who married Mary Coleman of Boscobel Wisconsin, they lived around Chicago.The siblings that we know of for John are as follows. John was the oldest followed by James, Loretta and Bob)
Now I have check Ellis Island and have found three Michael's.I am not up to date on Ireland locations,(will be reviewing this tonight) but I have found three Michaels. 1. (I feel this is the most likely Michael based on age) Michael Kerin, from Ballyvaughan, arrived July 27 1906 at 27 years old. Port of departure Queenstown, Cork, Munster, ireland. 2. (this would be my second guess) Michael Kerin from Ennistymon Ireland, arrived March 12, 1914 at 19 years old, port of departure, Queenstown, Cork, Munster, Ireland 3. (this would be the least likely, but still possable)Michael Kerin, from Queenstown, arrived September 11 1901 at 39 years old, port of departure, Queenstown, Cork, Munster ireland.
