Jane 1848 - 1914
Sylvester 1850 - 1926
Nicholas 1852

The family left Ireland in 1854. They were Irish Catholic under British rule and had no education which meant they couldn't read or write. The baby died on the ship coming over and was buried "at sea". Stories vary about the death of Philip. Children, Jane, Hannah, and Sylvester along with Mom, Bridget show in Iowa, all living with James.
