Richard Gerald Costigan of Montreal, Quebec, Canada, father of Cynthia Costigan (me). William Patrick Costigan is the youngest son of William Costigan and Margaret Kennedy. These two individuals are the last Irish born Costigans on my father's side of the family (Costigan). 8 members of the Costigan family left Ireland in 1842 for the USA. They left the USA a few years later to live in Richmond, Quebec, Canada, but it appears that the youngest son, who went by the name of Patrick William and sometimes William Patrick left Canada and returned to the USA. He lived in Canada for a time with Patrick Cummiskey and Bridget Costigan.
