In doing genealogy research I have come across these names on some ships lists.
Ship name: Bark Hannah Thornton, arrival 6/11/1850, PA.
Found: Wm. Reid age 40 male
Found: Mary Reid age 20 female
occupations listed overall as farmers, weavers, laborers, and spinsters. Country from listed as Ireland.
I am looking for some of my names from Ireland as well. I am not having any luck with ship lists. 1850 census show them listed at the end of Sept 1850. My ggggrandfather was born during the voyage 1 may 1850 and they are in the census 29 sept 1850 in Virginia and they are listed as being born in Ireland. So I only have a 4 or 5 month duration in 1850 to look at. I think they might have landed in Virginia because of that 4 or 5 month duration. Maybe PA. What ship lists should one look at during 1850 for names coming from Ireland. Look for name of Hayes or Haze, Edward, Catherine, Mary, or Cornelius. Also looking for Cronin/Cronan on same ship possibly. How do I find the ship Bark Hannah Thornton. That might be the ship I need.
