Robby Irish surname pronunciation (27) RE: Irish surname pronounciation 02 Nov 00

Mj, with your web site and retrieving some of my old notes, I was able to finally locate when and where Daniel Meehan and Bridget McGoldrick came to the U.S.
Daniel sailed on the SS Wyoming from Queenstown (Port of Cobh) and landed in New York City on April 22, 1872. I was just a little off on when Bridget got here. She sailed on the SS City of Richmond from Queenstown and landed in New York City on June 18, 1877. Maybe I can locate some old records here referring to their birthplace in Ireland.
Looking through the old passenger lists, I noted that any unmarried woman, no matter how young, was listed as a "spinster" if she had no occupation.
Thanks for your help.
