Earliest known ancestor James Driscoll (b. Mar 1814/Mar 1816).

James Driscoll (B March 1814/1816?) He immigrated to NY via Canada in the late 1840's. According to a family letter, his wife died at sea. He had 5 brothers {Jeremiah (tailor) and Dennis - possibly his twin} and a sister Mary. James died Jan 18th, 1901 in Brooklyn, NY; the death cert lists James as father and unknown as mother.

Beginning in 1850, the James Driscoll who immigrated is listed in census records as a tailor married to Ann. The family lived on Montgomery St, NY, NY. One of their children Jeremiah (B Feb 1852) was my great grandfather. Jeremiah and Mary Agnes O'Brien had a son James J (B June 6th, 1876) - my grandfather. He and Caroline Schildknecht had 4 children

A family letter states that our Driscolls came from the Bantry Bay area. However, oral history indicates that the family lived in Skibbereen or Baltimore, County Cork.
