Looking for info on Devins family. My grandfather Patrick b. in Carney, Co. Sligo in 1873. He moved to Scotland to work in the shipyards. He married a Mary Catherine Tighe in 1900 They had four children in Scotland. Patrick, alone came to Boston in 1909. He had an older brother, William, living in Boston and he stayed with William and his family until he could send for Mary Catherine and only one child. After three more years they could afford to send for the other three children. They lived in Boston for about five years and then came to Detroit, Michigan. Patrick died in 1944. Patricks parents were William Devins and Anne Haly, both b and d in Ireland. ANY info would be appreciated. Thanks
