Did you realize that the whole bunch lived in Alton Il in 1880? Check Family Search and you will find them. Thier was the Illinois Glass Company that opened in 1880. Patrick Glynn was a glass blower. I was always under the assumption that they went from NY to Detroit but they may have gone from NY to IL them to MI. The McQuades and the Bitzers were with them. I am going to check the city directories to find the dates that they were there. Anna Dalton Glynn the wife of Patrick's son Thomas may also have been from Missouri which is right across the river and a little south of Alton which is in southern Illinois. Have you found any new info lately,
