QUINN of Donegal; OVERN of Down and Fermanagh
I am descended from James Patrick QUINN, born 1828 in Ballintra, Donegal. James came to America in 1848, arriving in the Boston Harbor.
He married Catherine Anne OVERN, who was born in Enniskillen, Fermanagh in 1833, and came to America in 1835. Catherine's parents were both born in Cloughenramer, Newry, Down.
James and Catherine migrated from Boston/Charlestown to the small settlement of Erin, Rice County, MN in 1857.
I'll get more into stories regarding the family later on. For now, these are the bare facts to begin with.
