Famine Immigrants Book

I am unable to get ahold of a copy of Ira Glaziers "The Famine Immigrant Vol 4:April 1849-Sept 1849, so I am wondering if anybody has a copy of it to look up a Peter Leyden, embarked from Limerick on the Bryan Abbs and arrived in New York City on July 5, 1849. If you could pass along all information in regards to the above including ship captain, when it left, etc. Thank you in advance

Jim. It appears that he took the Bryan Abbs to Southampton where he and his family boarded the USM Steamship Washington to New York, arriving 5 Jul 1849. The record is available on ancestry.com. If you do not have access, give me your e-mail address and I will forward a copy to you. Don

Don, you might want to re-check

The Ancestry film covers dozens of arrivals in the 102 pages that come up when one searches for Peter Leyden. Most of these immigrant voyages were on brigs, much like the Bryan Abbs. They carried about 120 passengers and their passengers were contained on only 3 or 4 pages. The entire manifest for Bryan Abss is on image 98 through 100 of 102.

It would appear that the ship did, indeed, depart from Limerick under the command of John Hemsworth, master, and more than likely arrived in New York on 5 July. This date is on the heading page and can only be confirmed to be the date on which Hemsworth swore to the accuracy of the manifest. It could have been any date between the departure from Limerick and the arrival in New York, but that date is usually the arrival date.

What is interesting is that on the 3rd page, Hemsworth also attests to one missing passenger and that is dated 18 (or 13) July.

Jim. I sent 2 pages from the manifest. The first is the page listing the ships names, captain, etc. The second is the page listing Peter Leyden and his family. Thanks to BobNY, he saved me some time. These messages will not come from me but from ancestry.com and say that I found an interesting document I am sharing with you. Let me know if you do not receive them. Don

Bob. Thanks, you saved me some time. I was going to back track thru the manifest as I was wondering why they were listed on the Washington. Don
