Troys - Westmoreland County, PA
I'm looking for information on Michael Troy born around 1814 in Ireland.He married Elizabeth Allen in 1851.
Michael and Elizabeth Troy came to the US in 1856. Michael arrived in April 1856, traveling from Liverpool on the Benjamin Adams, arriving in New York. Elizabeth followed later that year, arriving in September and traveling with their
two young children, Patrick (age 3) and Mary Ann (age 2) from Liverpool on the Isaac Bell.
They are on the 1860 US Census as living in Unity Township, Westmoreland County, PA
I do not know where in Ireland they came from and I am running up against a brick wall trying to find Michael's parents. Someone said he was from County Cork, but there seems to be some problems with the birth date.I believe they lived in Wales shortly after marriage as their two first children were born in wales.They had several other children in the US.
If anyone has any information, please respond or email be at [email protected]
