My GGGrandfather, James M. Getty, a cooper (barrelmaker) by trade, born c. 1809 in Ireland, emigrated to America sometime1834-1839. In that year, in Philadelphia, he applied to become a U.S. citizen, stating that he had been born in Ireland and had recently "resided in Pennsylvania and Delaware".

He then settled in Robinson Twp., Allegheny Co. PA, outside of Pittsburgh.

Wife Sarah (Patton), was born in 1815 in Ireland. Their children (all born in Pennsylvania) were : James (born 1837), Mary Jane (born 1839), John (born 1840, Archibald P. (born 1842), Elizabeth (born 1844), Martha (born 1846), William P. (born 1849), Sarah M. (born 1852), and Sam (born c.1854).

Any information about his ancestors or descendants would be welcome.
