     Patrick Murnane was born on 27 July 1830 in Dromcomogue Townland, County Limerick, Ireland; Patrick's godparents were Thomas and Mary Morgan.1
     He immigrated with Patrick Murnane on 18 December 1849 to New York, New York, United States; Also listed in the record traveling with Patrick's family was a Widow Murnane (aged 54), her son Patrick (aged 20), and Margaret (aged 14). This is Nora Keaffe, widow of James Murnane. We assume that Patrick's other sons, John, Patrick and James, had died before 1849. His daughters, Mary, Ann and Elizabeth, may have died or may have married before 1849. Also listed is Michael Murnane: this person is not the son of Patrick and Ann, but rather the son of Michael and Julia English Murnane, Patrick's nephew.2 Patrick Murnane appeared on the census of 7 August 1850 in Danube Township, Herkimer County, New York, United States; Patrick is living in the household of Isaac Hart. Nora Murnane and her two children, Patrick and Margaret, are all living separately in Danube Township, just a few miles from where Darby and Johanna Day live.3
