Re: Durnin's in Dover New Hampshire

When Patrick originally arrived in the U.S. in July of 1855 through the port
of Boston. He went first to the Dover area, where he met his wife, Sarah
Morgan. They were most likely both working in the textile mill at the time.
They married on April 20, 1857. They were in Lewiston, ME, by the time the 1860
census was taken.

I suspect Annie was sent over later. She does appear in the 1870 census for
Portland, ME:

Patrick Durnin 40
Sarah 32
John 12
Edward 10
James 17 days
Frank 6
Peter Henry 5
Charles P. 2
Annie 22

This is from my gr aunt's notes. I need to get a copy of the actual census
to see addresses, etc. Annie was probably a niece.

Patrick was back in Dover by 1875 according to his naturalization paperwork,
issued in NH. There is some connection with the Devine family of Maine. We
don't know in what way.
