I too am seeking information about the Barnicle family. While my grandmother was a Natick Barnicle, my grandfather was a Worcester Barnicle, and we have very little information about either family. Patrick J. Barnicle of County Mayo, the oldest of about 15 surviving children, came to this country about 1890, when he was 16 years old. He worked to bring his younger brothers and sisters over. They would come, spend
some time with him and move on. It is my understanding that the family scattered across the U.S. I do know he had a brother James and a sister Nora both of whom he met for the first time when they arrived here. He did live briefly in Cherry Valley, a section of Leicester just outside of Worcester for about 8 years. Other than that brief period of time he spent the rest of his life in Worcester where my father grew up.
I would really be interested in learning what became of the rest of the family. I understand that a few either returned to Ireland or never left. I would also be interested in learning where he came from in Mayo. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
