I have read your forum contribution of several years ago and hope this still manages to connect with you!
I am trying to locate any information I can about Patrick Glispin and Catherine Whelan who took their family from Kilkenny (via Leeds in Yorkshire) to Massachusetts in 1840.
I have very little information concerning their own particular families in Ireland and wonder if you might have any information you might care to share.
I suspect Patrick's parents were Thomas Glispin and Mary Conelly (spelling ?). And I read somewhere that Catherine's mother was a Glispin, also.
Hoping you might be able to fill some blanks for me.
Many thanks and kind regards
