born in Cork,Ireland,1873/1874? such as parents,brothers,sisters,etc.?
I have been told all of my life that my great-grandfather,Patrick Henry Waters,was a stow-a-way on a ship bound for the U.S.A. from Co.Cork,Ireland.All I know is that he was born in 1873 or 1874 and he was approximately 12 yrs. of age at that time of his grand adventure to a new country.He died in 1944 or 1945 in Los Angeles,California.He was in New York city for a little while after getting off the ship (how long no one knows) earning money the best way he could-street fighting was a unusually popular method for accomplishing this.At some point,he left for New Mexico.No one knows why he did this-either to go off searching for gold,or;trying to outrun the law. Help!!!!
