Below is the info I have. Where is Elsin Borough? Where was the orignial Irish colonoy in NJ located?
Patrick Fagin was in the original Irish colony in New Jersey. He was a schoolmaster in Elsin Borough, Salem County, New Jersey, around 1759. Sometime prior to 1766, he moved to New Hanover Township, Burlington County, New Jersey. Although a record of his wifes name is yet to surface, while in Burlington County, New Jersey, Patricks children were born.
Patrick Fagin, and his family, left New Jersey before 1790. They crossed the Alleghenies by wagon trail. The Fagins settled in western Pennsylvania, Fayette County, Menallen Township, on the Monongahela River, near Brownsville. There they were recorded in the first US census of 1790.
More Fagins and also Wells and Grogan's can be found on my web site at:http://www.angelfire.com/wi/grogan/genealogy.html
