I came across this and though you might find this interesting:

From Landmarks of Monroe County, NY
by William F. Peck (1895)
Part III, p. 75
Killip, Patrick, who for many years lived in Rochester and was identified with the early history of the place, was a native of the Isle of Man, born December 25, 1801. At the age of twenty-two he became captain of a small coasting schooner, and followed the sea several years. In his native place he married Jane Morrison and they had one child, who died in England. In 1828 Mr. Killip came to Rochester, and located on Andrews street, where the convent now stands. He was a tanner, and also a farmer as well as a successful business man, and the owner of a number of houses. He was in business several years prior to 1840, and during that time was a prominent member of the old volunteer fire department. He had three certificates, each showing seven years' service in the department, and was justly proud of his association with the early events of the locality. His funeral was attended by a delegation of the Exempt Firemen's Association, in which body he was much es- teemed, and was its oldest member. In 1858 he removed to Ogden, where he purchased the Hodges farm, and here he died in 1889. His children were Margaret, who married James Balfe and lives in Toledo, O.; Eliza, wife of William Killip; Sarah and Susan, twins, both of whom died in Ogden: John C., and Maria, both of Ogden; Thomas, who died in childhood; and Mary, of Ogden.
