I am looking for any information on Michael, John, James & Philip Spellman. The earliest i see them in the United states is in the 1870 Census However church records indicate that John Spellman was in Newburgh, New York as Early as 1858. I beleive that these 4 men are brothers. They appear in Newburgh, NY and they are from ireland. I am a Descendent of John Spellman born 1835, Michael was born appx 1831 and James 1848. The Death record for John lists parents as John Spellman and Mary Ryan. Any information would help. I have no idea where in Ireland John may have been from.
