Hi John Kerrigan,
I am trying to trace another John Kerrigan. He was born in Ireland about 1827 and died in England about 1887. His father may have been a Patrick. He married a Catherine Jennings (in Ireland) and they moved to Kingswinford, UK. They had two daughters (maybe more but all I found) Bridget b abt 1859 in Stourbridge, UK and Katherine b abt 1861. He had a sister Ann (abt 1831/5-1902). She married into the Scally Family.
His daughter Bridget married James J. Hunt (born 1857) and they went to the US around 1885. They had three children. Katherine born 1/8/1995 in Kidderminster UK and then the other two Margaret (1895) and James Francis (1890) in Massachusetts.
Does any of this sound familiar?
