Hi Bethan. I am descended from a Patrick KERR who was probably from Sligo. He was born in Ireland in 1797. He married Elizabeth ____, possibly in Sligo.
He was one of four siblings who traveled to Canada in 1825. Many researchers have searched for many years to find out which KERR or CARR family they came from.
Patrick's sister, Mary KERR, married in Sligo. She married William HENDERSON, and they had a few children there before they migrated to Canada.
The other two siblings were Elizabeth KERR who was single when they went to Canada.
And, John KERR had married an Ann HENDERSON, possibly in Sligo.
I was wondering if you thought there was a connection between your Patrick CARR and my Patrick KERR.
