Dear Patti , Unhappily this is not her. I have already used Family Search and cannot find her. I am new at this and
looked at the ships that came into New York Harbor but they only show stating in 1846. She was born from what I have seen in 1831 in
married at the age of 17 Patrick Welch ( Welsh,Walsh ) in NYC in 1848 St Columba Church in Manhatten . A
witness to her marriage was her sister BRIDGET CORRIGAN. I have a copy of her obituary in the Brooklyn
newspaper calledTHE BROOKLYN EAGLE . She died in Brookly on April 12th 1897. A lot of my family lived
in HYDE PARK ,Massachusettes. Her son JOHN J WELCH had a horse stable for zabout 25 years in Hyde Park
and came to Brookly,NYC in 1889/1890 . My father was born in Brooklyn in 1899 and myself in 1945.
Thanks for your quick answer and trying to help me out. She is buried in Holy Cross Cementary in Brooklyn,NYC.

Thank you for posting your question on History Hub!
The National Archives has passenger arrival records, sometimes called "ship passenger lists," for arrivals to the United States from foreign ports between approximately 1820 and December 1982 (with gaps). The records are arranged by port or airport of arrival. Most passenger arrival records indicate the port of arrival, the port of departure, and the name of the ship, along with other information. Please see our Passenger Arrival Records page for additional details.
If you do not know her port of entry, you might start by searching the passenger arrival records for ports near where she settled. Again, please see our Browse by Port of Entry page for a list of arrival records by port. Please see Passenger Arrival List Research Tips for additional tips.
We hope this assists you with your research!

I found you GG grandmothers obit in The Brooklyn Eagle Apr 12, 1897 on Page:7.
https://www.newspapers.com/image/50439997/ I see from your post that you already have this information but in it a mention of Native of Monasterevin, County Kildare, Ireland.
I located her death Certificate at the following link:
Question 2 Age: Answer 65 Years 10 months 21 days
Question 8 If of foreign birth how long in the US Answer 50 years
Question 9 How long a resident of the city? Answer 10 years.
So, with the above information her birth would be May 23, 1831
Immigration year 1847
Resident of the City since 1887
Monasterevin is a Catholic Parish in Co. Kildare, on Roots Ireland https://www.rootsireland.ie/
It has a list of births for this parish:
8 matches for the search criteria: Corrigan (plus variants) 1821-1841 Parish: MONASTEREVIN (RC)
There is no listing for Elizabeth or Bridget Corrigan in their records. I also accessed the parish NLI records to see if some damage may have occurred to the record or perhaps some missing pages, but everything appears to be OK. A link to the record at NLI
