    Seeking information on Irish immigrants arriving in the colonies 1780-1783

    Patti Nelson Newbie

      I am trying to find information on ancestor that traveled to Pennsylvania from Ireland in at some point between 1781 and 1783. She was born in Ireland in 1765, baptized in Northern Ireland in 1770 and was married in Pennsylvania in 1784.The family story is she sailed to the colonies at the age of 17 as an orphan, with her little brother. We have no information on how that happened or where she ended up after arriving. Another family story is she and the brother ended up being raised by different families, so possibly they were indentured? How would I find information on what ship she may have left Ireland on and/or where she may have landed after that?
