The following is the known story for Patrick Prior, born in Ireland, but the specific location is unknown. Griffiths Eval indicates either Leitrum or Cavan is most likely. The only verifiable info I have on him is from US records. He married 1858 in Bloomfield, Essex, NJ, USA, so immigration was before that.
Any help that could pin down Pat would be of emence help. I've been looking for this family for an awfully long time.
