John Edmund Curtin : Rockchapel, Ireland to Haverhill, Ma. Updated December 1, 2009
About Our Family Research
John Edmund Curtin arrived in Boston May 10, 1897 from Rockchapel, Cork, Ireland at age 22. One of fourteen children, he left his parents, siblings and family farm to come to America.
Since there were many Curtin families in Rockchapel all families had nicknames to differentiate them from each other.
This Curtin line was known as "The Gods" very holy (devout) people ....a name given to a g/father for example, would still be used by locals when talking about a grandson----- like The Gods John Edmund Curtin !!
With much gratitude to Margaret Curtain of Australia for all her help, patients and time. This is my Grandfather's lineage.
