Thanks a lot for this information. I had known about these two women but do not know which families they came from or what happened when they got to America. I had in fact thought that the 'Dromahair' was bound for Boston - so it's useful to know that they arrived in New York.
Please confirm that the spelling 'Whitehead' in your message is a typo for 'Whiteside'.
I would welcome any information about these two women and their lives in America.
