Not sure if this helps but this was originally posted by my mother, Janet Goldrick Friend in 2002 on a different website. She has since passed away but she did extensive research on Goldrick's in Ireland. Not sure if there is a link to your family but the location and another Patrick Goldrick in the family make it a possibility.
Miles Goldrick was born in Virginia, Co. Cavan in August, 1833. His parents
were Philip Goldrick (born about 1795) and Nancy Fitzsimons, also of Co.
Cavan. His grandfather was Owen (Mc)Goldrick -- Owen was originally a
McGoldrick, but when he and his 3 brothers encountered problems with the
English authorities, they dropped the "Mc" from their name.
Philip Goldrick married Nancy Fitzsimons of Virginia, Co. Cavan. He was
born abt. 1795 (based on age in the 1850 census) He emigrated to
Philadelphia in 1848 with Miles, Peter and John Goldrick. He is recorded in
Cumberland Co., NJ in the 1850 census. Nothing more about him has been
Several of Miles brothers also emigrated -- Patrick Goldrick (b. abt. 1823)
was married in Co.Cavan to Ann Sheridan (b. abt. 1822; died in Cleveland in
1901) Children born in Cavan were Philip, Bridget and Mary. Philip
emigrated before 1850 and died outside Philadelphia before 1860. Ann and
the 3 children emigrated in 1851. A fourth child, Kate, was born in the
Philadelphia area in 1857. After Patrick's death, Ann and the children
relocated from Philadelphia to Cleveland, Ohio.
Owen Goldrick (b. 1824) probably arrived in Philadelphia before 1850. He is
recorded in the 1850 census in southern NJ outside Philadelphia. He married
Margaret Cooney in Cleveland, Ohio in 1851.
Peter Goldrick (b. 1825) was born in the parish of Mullagh, Virginia, Co.
Cavan and emigrated with his father, Philip, and brothers Miles and John.
He married Ann McNally in Cape May, NJ and moved to Cleveland where he
served 2 terms on the Cleveland City Council in the 1860s and 1870s.
John Goldrick emigrated with Peter, Miles and Philip but nothing more is
known of him.
A woman named Margaret Clark also emigrated with Peter, Miles and Philip.
It is thought that she might have been a married sister.
