Patrick Flynn Irish RootsSupport Group and 50/50 draw
IN LIKE FLYNN - MIRAMICHI 1834??
A number of mysteries surround Patrick Flynn's birth and arrival in North America. We understand -
That Patrick was born in 1806, we believed in Cork Ireland
That Patrick arrived in the Miramichi in May 1834. However, we've never been able to locate a ship's record.
That Patrick married Bridget Sullivan, who we now believe was born in New Brunswick shortly after her parents arrival in June of 1817.
Did Patrick come alone or was he accompanied (or preceded) by other relations? We now believe he was accompanied by at least two siblings, Catherine and Mary Flynn. Mary married William Sullivan, who we are pretty sure was Bridget's brother and church records record Catherine Flynn as one of the witnesses for their wedding.
Is there a picture of Patrick Flynn out there somewhere?
Where do the remains of Patrick and Bridget rest?
If these questions intrigue you, join a group dedicated to solving the mystery and linking all of us up with our Irish Roots. Join us for a cup'a coffee and a donut in St. Margaret's on the Sunday morning to discuss how best to proceed. Let's make this gift of their own history to our kids and to their kid's kid's!
If enough of us get together, we should be able to mount a serious search. We have also added Flynn DNA to an international Flynn Family data base that will provide further insight into the family's early history and with any luck may link us up with related Flynn families around the world.
Over the course of the reunion we will be selling chances on a 50/50 draw. The proceeds of the draw will go to support the search for Patrick Flynn's roots.
