I would like to find where in Ireland William Corrigan/Caragan/Kerrigan was born. His immigration date is unknown, but he may have been enumerated in Huntingdon County, PA in 1860. He was enumerated in Huston Township, Blair County, PA in 1870, with the occupation of miner. He lived with his wife Elizabeth STRAYER (named Barbara in the 1870 census) and four children. His six children (born 1864-1874) were all born in Ore Hill, in neighboring Taylor Township. He is in the 1880 Taylor Township, Blair County mortality schedule, having died in May of that year. The schedule states he had been living in Blair County for 15 years.
Looking for the Pahides family..my Aunt Jacqueline is looking for her family that she has never met. She is not out to gain anything just the connection. Just to meet her family. Her half sisters name is Rula (julie) Pahides, she believes her Fathers name was Socreates Pahides. My Aunts mothers name was Mary Minerva Bowers. She knows they resided in the Pennsylvania. Philadelphia area, United States. She was approached many years ago by an unknown woman who asked her for her name, the woman had a young girl with her who looked exactly like my Aunt. When my Aunt told the unknown woman her name the woman left and my Aunt never heard from nor saw this person ever again.Even if there were a promised marriage between my Aunts Father and someone else this should not have been a reason to never allow my Aunt access to her family. We all need to know where we come from and our familys history and maybe any genetic health issues. Rula (Julie in greek) would be about 55 today. Please if anyone knows of this family contact me as soon as possible
Thank You for your time and patience

I will be glad to share information on these lines. Check my website: pixleyblair.tribalpages. com I have also written a story on the Scots & Scots-Irish in America. From the Home Page-in upper left, go to 'People' then to 'Stories': "The Scots, Scots-Irish-and The Making of America".
