Patrick Corcoran
Birth Date:   abt 1789 
Birth Place:   County Roscommon, Ireland 
The birth Date was calculated based on the year of birth for
Patrick's first child Mary born in 1820. It is assumed that
his marriage would have been in the previous year of 1819.
Historically my male ancestors were married at an average age
of 30 years, so that would place his birth to be about 1789 plus
or minus!
The Birth Place was obtained from the birth record for his childrenbr> Mary & Patrick which listed their residence as Fairymount.

 Additional Info:
*There are no records to support the names of Patrick's parents, however based on the Irish traditional
naming patterns used for their children, the child's paternal grandfather's name would be given to the
first male child which was Bernard, and the child's paternal grandmother's name would be given to the
second female child which was Elizabeth.  Let me emphasize that these were "traditional naming patterns"
which were NOT followed by all families.

Many of the records which were obtained for this family used the surname spelling of "Corkran".  For this
and all other Corcoran family records I have used the spelling of "Corcoran" to allow my sorting routines 
to list the entire family together sorted on the parent's names.
