1860 & 1870 Census

The John McCormack family mentioned in the notes above have been reviewed ..and they and others will be, a not enormous project which I can handle, of McCormack transcriptions in the short future.

Meanwhile it is, however, one profile of a family joined with a Bernard or Brendan McCormack who is Ireland born, and has a family of five or so... Hence this Daniel McCormack is a 10 year old New York born boy attending school [in 1860], and not DanielJMcCormack of PEI who'd have been 18 in 1860 & still in PEI; also a brother named John, a wife and sisters.
See passenger lists this site
These are some of the Irish McCormacks with which Scottish-Irish or Scotch-Irish people of that name relate. It also indicates a rather common transit then, of an Irishman in 1860 who is Irish born, but moved to Boston from the New York - where his children were born.

Daniel McCormack & family, maybe intending farming in West Roxbury or otherwise settled [likely entered as a 'seaman' from PEI in 1868] and settled in the Ward 15 area for the 1870 or missed it .. in 1880 and, possibly the 1870 census he is in the larger and newer wards in West Roxbury (outer Dorchester) which were infeasible for even 'truck farming' but ideal for 'homesites' and joined Olmstead & Boston's development plans. His [Daniel F McCormack 's] people will appear in Wards 23, 24 in outer Dochester to mattapan. The early census for those are broad enumeration schedules without the dense door to door populations ..as if in a neighborhood readying to urbanize.
