: Seeking ancestry of my immigrant ancestor, Patrick Norton, who was born in County Roscommon in the 1850's. He came to the United States as a young man, and settled in Jersey City, New Jersey. There, he eventually became a part-owner of the old Kruger Brewery. He died in 1937.
: I have no further information on his roots, but the names of his children may provide clues. They were, in birth order: Thomas Joseph, Margaret Josephine, James Francis, and Henry DeSalles.
: Any help greatly appreciated!
: William Morgan
: Orlando, I too am seeking information about Patrick Norton. He was my great grandfather. My grandfather's name was Thomas Patrick Norton. His father, Patrick Norton was born in County Roscommon around the time you state. I do not have as yet his exact birthdate. Do you know who he married?
