Arrived in New York Aug. 7, 1837 aboard the ship Spring along with Johanna b. abt. 1797 (mother?) Johanna b. abt. 1819 and James b. abt.1816 (siblings?) Of his possible mother and siblings, I have no trace, but John married Catharine M. Ryan b. abt. 1833 in Ireland after they arrived here, probably in 1852 by the age of their eldest. Catherine immigrated about 1842. All events happened in Brooklyn, NY John, a sail maker by trade, became the Keeper of the Kings County Nursery from 1865-1875.
