His wife was Mary Curtin; his children were Jeremiah, b.Ireland – 1849(my grt-grt grandfather); Ellen, b. Ireland – c. 1855; John, b. Ireland – c. 1857; Elizabeth, b. U.S.A. – c. 1866.
Also perhaps, Patrick, Bridget, and Johanna, Birthdays unknown.
The 1879 U.S. census places the Richard, Ellen, John and Elizabeth in Rolla, Missouri. Family lore says they immigrated through New Orleans.
Any solid information would helpful.
