looking for Patrick Boyle and Maria/Mary Lynch Boyle of Ireland

My ggf Patrick Boyle immigrated from Ireland to Friendsville,PA.Arrived Friendsville Oct or Nov 1847.He was indentured to a Terrill family who had a large farm.He worked there until he paid off his fare.Sometime in the early 1850's he returned to Ireland and married Maria or Mary Lynch and returned to Friendsville,PA.I don't know the dates or where any of this occured.He is in the 1850 census and he and his wife and family are listed in the 1860 census.They moved around northern PA working.Patrick was a laborer and illiterate.He worked D&H Erie Canal and later D&H railroad.In 1875 he moved with his family to Westport NY and work for D&H railroad the rest of his life.He and Maria/Mary had 15 children.I think most of his son's worked or started work on D&H railroad.They mostly were Track men although some became engineers and other trades.They were catholic and attended ST Philip Neri church in Westport NY.They are buried in the cemetery there.A large stained glass window in the church was furnished by my ggf his name is on it.Patrick and Marie/Mary rented and then bought the home they lived in close to the church.The house was deeded to their oldest son and remained in the family until the 199Os.

Patrick,s son Patrick is my gf.He lived in Ticonderoga NY and worked for D&H also as a trackman.He and my gm lived on Battery St in Ticonderoga.
