Helpwith Bridget Minster b1822 Limerick Ireland emigrated to Boston
« on: Monday 18 November 13 21:31 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone tell me any more about Bridget Minster B1822 Limerick Ireland who emigrated to America on the 'Bark Callao" on 17th August 1847?
She went from Limerick to Boston with her two sons Pat(rick) aged 2 and Francis aged 1 year and 1 month.
She was a spinster.


Any help gratefully received.

I wonder if the surname might actually be Miniter. 

I found this Patrick on the 1910 census who looks to be the right age - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/M2VJ-5SM  The surname on the image seems to look more like Miniter than Minster.

There seem to be 3 marriages for this Patrick, with parents' names of John and Bridget (nee Canole in one).

Possible death record doesn't give a mother's name - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/N47M-LZ3

There is a death for a John F. Miniter who seems close to Francis' age and has parents as John & Bridget (Coule) of Ireland.  https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/N48M-6RL

The age is off, but possible death record for Bridget - https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/NW46-R2K
