My great great grandfather, Patrick Melvin, lived in Troy on 136 Fourth Street. He worked as a shoemaker. He was born in Ireland and passed away on September 14th 1862 at 59 years of age in Troy.
I am going to Ireland in March of 2007 and am trying desperately to find out where Patrick was from in Ireland, so that I can see/visit where I came from, where my roots are.
The Troy Librarian, Larry Kammerer helped with with some info, with exact street adresses and assumed as I had given him the natualization numbers that I had viewed them and had all info from it. I just had numbers from a very distant relative from contact on the internet. She never saw them either. I sent Larry an email asking to refer any info from the Naturalization records that could help me.
Don't know if you would be able to help me further. But would appreciate anything you could do. I have census references from 1850 Census. Wife Ellen was born in Ireland in approximately 1815, children were born in Troy, John 1834, Ann 1837, Frances 1838, Thomas in 1840, Henry in 1842, Joseph in 1844 and Marie Lillian in 1846. I have Patrick buried in St. Mary's Cemetary in Troy. I have info on both Frances and Thomas being in the Union Army, sadly it's recorded that they both deserted one at Fort Sumpter and the other a few months later after fighting in PA. I found most of the kids living in Brooklyn, NY with their families in the 1880 Census.
anything you could help me with with either Patrick or my great great grandmother Ellen would be appreciated.
