Patrick (b Jun 22 1842, Pallasgreen) son of Thomas (b 1811) and Mary Grady (b 1816). 

In 1828, 1834 and 1853  he lived in Killeennagalive, Templebredon, Clanwilliam. 

He and brothers John and Jeremiah emigrated to the US in 1865,1867 1nd 1881. 

They settled in Eldred PA with business interests in Buffalo NY.  The family were tailors but for a time Patrick was a blacksmith to pay for college at Canisius in Buffalo NY. The Eldred Ivers from Killeenagallive and the Buffalo Ivers from Cork were connected in some way.  

One of Patrick's daughters, Kathryn, was interviewed on her 90th birthday and said that her mother, Ellen Flahive,  was from Tralee (correct) and her father (Patrick)  was from Cork.  Since we know that he was baptized in Pallasgreen, we have to assume that she assumed he was from Cork because his many trips to Ireland during her childhood (from 1880-1905)  were to Cork.

The family in the Cloyne/Midleton area of Cork share the same names and one branch of that family emigrated to the US and were the Ivers family visited by the Eldred Ivers in Buffalo NY in the 1880s-1890s.   So it is possible that the Killeengallive Ivers joined the Cloyne area Ivers after John, Patrick and Jeremiah went to the US.  Members of this Killeengallive family who apparently did not emigrate are: Mary Kelly Ivers born 1789,  Mary Grady Ivers born 1816, Margaret born 1814, Patrick 1817, Mary 1821 and Thomas 1845.  Are thre any descendants of these Ivers still in Ireland?
