    Seeking name of railroad & station in Pottsville

    Dorothea Brennan Wayfarer

      In roughly 1861, my Great Grandfather, Daniel E. Brennan (born Castleleiny, Co Tipperary, Ireland 1845). emigrated to the US. He paid his own passage. By 1864, when he was 19, he was honored to have his name included on a brass plaque listing him as the (construction) engineer on railroad station house in Pottsville, PA. I am trying to find the name of the railroad and the name of the station house. It was torn down sometime after 1904 when he took his then 19-year-old son, Daniel E. Brennan, Jr (born 1885 Shenandoah, PA) to see the station and plaque.
