I am looking for additional information regarding Patrick Breen (DOB approx 1828 in Ireland) and his wife, Mary Hannan/Hannon Breen (DOB approx 1830 in Ireland) who resided in Williamsport in the 1850's-1870's. Patrick and his 8 children then moved to Kansas City prior to the 1880 census. Mary did not come with him ( perhaps died?)
Mary and Patrick had their first child in New York state in 1854, but all the rest were born in Williamsport between 1855 and 1873.
I do not know what county in Ireland they were from, nor do I know why the came to Williamsport, or why the moved to Missouri.
Any insight you can give would be most welcome.
Patricia Breen, g-g granddaughter of Patrick
