- death cert. (4 May 1888) says PC was from Donegal (town? county?) and his parents were named Rose Lyon and Frank Carrigan. I have recently come across a potential brother, Thomas Carrigan, d. in NYC (16 Apr. 1883) with parents Frank and Rose Carrigan. I have no idea when Thomas arrived. Patrick is mentioned in Murphy & Murphy as having arrived at Castleton, Rutland, Vermont after 1832 where he met and married Margaret Jones Hunt, dau. of Owen Hunt and sis. of Hannah Hunt. (no mother's name known, no marriage document located.) By 1839 PC and MJH were married and had a child.

You need to try to find church records for that time.   Try http://www.igp-web.com/IGPArchives/ire/donegal/church.htm  

Also Family Search seems to have records for his children.
