Patrick Cody was born in Ireland (probably in County Kilkenny or County Cork) on July 17, 1825. The birth date was taken from his death certificate. According to census records, he arrived in North America in 1846, most likely because of the terrible famine. Patrick, was married in The Church of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Lindsay, Ops Township, Victoria County, Ontario on March 6, 1848 to Bridget Quillan. She was born in Ireland in 1827, probably in the same area as Patrick. He was 23 years old when he got married and Bridget 21. He and Bridget were related as second cousins once removed or third cousins. They had to get the bishop's permission before they got married.
