Just this week I started helping my niece who has Pyne ancestors from Massachusetts.Her first ancestor we know about from census records was William born 1822 in Ireland.He married a Margaret Unknown and his first son and child on census was William J. Pyne born about 1854 in Massachusetts.The 1860 census showed the family in Milford, Worcester Co., Massachusetts. Do you think my niece's William might be the William in your line born 1824?Of course, if naming patterns were observed the father wouldn't be John but William unless they named him for the wife's father.Any help appreciated.
