I am looking for information on my great-grandfather, Patrick McPhillips. Here is the information I have.
Michael McPhillips was born in 1824 in Clones Parish, County Fermanagh, the son of Patrick McPhillips. He was a farmer. He married Mary Smith or Smyth. Their children were born in Corravilla Township, Aghabog Parish County Monaghan
My ggfather and his siblings:
Three McPhillips children (names unknown) died in Ireland. Five McPhillips children immigrated with their parents to Quebec departing Liverpool in May 1868 on the “Nestorian” and from there to Wisconsin USA. The children were Patrick b. 14 Feb 1855, Susan 2 September 1857, John 14 September 1859, Mary in 1862, and Owen 12 November 1868. Perhaps the 3 children who died were born prior to 1855 or between 1862-68, given the gaps in birthyears of the siblings.
