A new result has appeared in the Sorenson database for an anonymous
DNA donor whose ancestor is Daniel P Driscoll b. Dec 1873, England. He
falls within I-M284 - Isles A.

I found the family in the 1900 census of Providence, Rhode Island:
Dennis Driscol Head Oct 1839, 60, Widower, England, Ireland, Ireland,
1895, Sheet Iron Worker
Daniel P Driscol Son Dec 1873, 26, Single, England, England, Ireland,
1893, Silversmith
Elizabeth Driscol Dau Feb 1877, 23, Single, England, England, Ireland, 1895
Richard J Driscol Son Jul 1879, 20, Single, England, England, Ireland,
1895, Silversmith
Charles O Driscol Son Jan 1883, 17, Single, England, England, Ireland,
1895, Enameler (bicycle)
In the 1910 and 1930 census of Rhode Island, Daniel's parents are both
said to be born in Ireland.

In 1891 Daniel, age 18, is a Militiaman at Whittington Heath in
Birmingham, Warwickshire. His the family is also in Birmingham:

Edward Driscoll Son 15 Brass Polisher, Warwick, Birmingham

In 1881 and 1871 the family resides in Birmingham and Dennis is said
to be born in Ireland (1881 Ancestry.com transcribed Driscoll as
"Dincott").

In 1861 Dennis Driscoll resides in Birmingham with his mother.
