    3. Responding to Joanne---Thanks! The Patrick Farrington living near your Thomas Farrington is certainly a line worth examining more. Is the Father listed in the Emigrant Savings Bank listing named Dert Farrington, by any chance? We've seen a baptism for a Patt Farrington listing Dert as his father (mother I think is Mary, though it's pretty illegible). (sorry, I can't locate right now where in IRE that baptism was). I don't have access to Emigrant Savings Bank without a trip to the library. I would feel pretty confident that the marriage that Patricia found of Patrick/Mary is probably "the City Hall Place" Patrick. But, hmmm, the witnesses aren't your Thomas. Just a thought. Now, whether it's "MY" Patrick Farrington is still unclear in my mind. I've never found my Patrick in a census before 1860 Indiana, so I have no idea if he was married before Mary. My concern is that none of my Patrick/Mary's kids are named Thomas nor Bridget---even though that's not necessarily in the traditional naming pattern. The children I know, all born in Indiana, are Mary Ann, John Peter, Patrick Joseph, Julia, Eliza, Margaret and Agnes. That gives me a "to do" item to chase down the baptisms, and see who the sponsors are, even though they were hundreds of miles apart by then. Witnesses for Patrick's naturalization (in Indiana, not until 1883, so perhaps irrelevant) were Joseph Turnock and John T. Morgan. Do those names do anything for you? Thanks. We'll keep in touch. Every little lead helps!

    3. Hi Bonn The father of Patrick in the Emigrant Savings Bank record is listed as Pat, mother Julia Costelloe. The entire entry says he was living at 524Pearl St when he opened the account and was "a native of The Neal, 3 miles outside of Ballinrobe, County Mayo, Ireland. Arrived in NY 4th of April/1848 from the ship Uterp, from Liverpool. Parents dead, Fa Pat, Mo Julia Costelloe. 2 Bros and 1 sis. Is a widow, wife was Eleanor Harrington. 5 children." I also found another account for him in 1868, so if your Patrick was in Indiana by then, it's pretty obvious they are different people. My own Farringtons came from Shrule, Mayo and didn't arrive in NYC until 1850. That was the Thomas and Bridget I mentioned, my great great grandparents. Their first son was named Patrick, their first daughter was written "Judy" in the baptismal records, but her name could have actually been Julia (have you ever tried to decipher some of these Irish church records?!). The baptismal sponsors puzzle me in many cases as they sometimes do not share the last name of either the father or the mother. I do wonder at times if they just grabbed someone who was available... You might be interested to know that my Farringtons were originally Farrahers but had their name changed by some official either at embarkation in Liverpool or debarkation in NY. My now deceased aunt mentioned that her father (my grandfather) had told her that and a second cousin I have since connected with on Ancestry, who has done extensive research on the family, confirmed it. I too am going to go back and look at some Irish records again. I'll let you know if I learn anything new. Happy hunting!
