My ancestor Johanna DRAKE, born circa 1816 in Ireland, married Patrick MARR of Ireland, born circa 1813. Gravestone evidence indicates that Johanna may have been from the Parish of Knocklong, County Limerick, Ireland. Johanna and Patrick had 1 son, John, born circa 1840 in Massachusetts, USA and 1 daughter, Catherine, born circa 1844 in New Jersey, USA. Patrick died at Montreal, Canada in 1848. Johanna and her children came to Troy, New York, USA no later than 1857 and lived out their lives there.
Seek any information on Johanna's family in Ireland.
