Bridget was a Irish girl about ten years old who was swept overboard at sea and perished. I don't know the name of her parents, or even the year of her demise. I estimate that she was one of the Irish immigrants during the 1840's, so approximate date of birth would be the 1830's, but it could be earlier, or even later. I know that the ships passenger lists would have to account for those that died at sea, but since I don't know the name of the ship or the exact year, this would be quite difficult. Does anyone have any suggestions? She was a child that I have been wanting to find information on for a long time, but don't know how to go about it.

Admin note:

It might be easier for someone to help if you'll say what evidence you have that the child was swept overboard and died.
