Subject: [WORLD-OBITS] JAMES QUINN b: 1815
Date: Mon, 14 Oct 2002 20:35:54 -0700
Our QUINN is as follows:
JAMES QUINN b: Ireland 1815
ANN (wife) b: Ireland 1818 ( last name unknown)
JAMES (son) b: Ireland 1844
JOHN (son) b: Ireland 1846
JULIA (daughter) b: Ireland 1848 ( our link)
CATHERINE (daughter ) b: Ireland 1852
ELLEN (daughter) b: New Jersey US. 1856
ANN ( daughter) b: New Jersey US. 1858
Don't know where or when JAMES and ANN were married, for years had her name as MARY. It may have been MARY ANN, don't know.
There may have been other children we don't have names or birth dates for.
The family left for the US, arrived in 1855 and lived in Morris Co., New Jersey US..
Had been told they took a ship from CORK, but that person is no longer here to get more Information to see if it was the right port they left from or to find the ship's name.
In 1860 federal census, JAMES (sr). and JAMES( jr.) were working as miners in Morris Co., New Jersey.
Found one record where JAMES (sr). father was suppose to be WILLIAM QUINN and his mother was ALECIA MORRISON.
Our link to this family is JULIA QUINN, found where she was suppose to have been born in the Country of Wicklow and then found she had been born in Dublin.
JULIA QUINN had married JOHN GARR and they ended living in Livingston, Montana which is about 150 miles from here.
I have been working on the QUINN's for over 7 years and when I think I found something it is the wrong lead. Talk about a BRICK WALL, this is mine.
This Oct, one of our daughter and her friend will be in Dublin for the 26 mile race. If possible they would like to be able to get some history or be able to take some photos where the family may have been.
Thanks for any help on the family.
