Many thanks for your efforts on my behalf; it is very much appreciated. :) :-*

The 1870 census record looks like them.  It also looks likely Catherine lost the children early but as yet this is just supposition.  Its good to know how many she birthed.

You're welcome.
In 1870 they were in the Pennington Post Office area of Coatesville. This later became Atglen, in case you are tracking them. Not far away,- maybe closer to the rolling mill that Wm and the Sweeneys were working in. You'd need to look at the history of the area.

----
"On January 3, 1876, the Court in West Chester made a decree incorporating the vil!age of Penningtonville into a borough by the title of "the Borough of Atglen.' The first election of officers was to be held on the third Tuesday of February, 1876."

Fingers crossed the family is NOT located in the 1880 census.  If they aren't located it supports the theory the family migrated to Australia in 1874. ;D

Thank you for the history of the place.  I find it very interesting.

There was a lot of births listed on family search - Philadelphia to William Duffy and Catherine between 1860 - 1870 wonder if they are possible -  ??? Suppose they are both had common christian names

Chester County kept birth records for limited years. Other than the years listed below, the county did not record births.

It's hard to tell, as there is more than 1 family of William and Catherine from Ireland.

There is this family in 1880 also with a son John (and other children William and Kate, though in Philadelphia, so could be the other family mentioned reply #1 ):

This looks like them in 1870

so I can't really see the family from Coatesville in 1880.  :-\
