My grandmother's sister Bridget Griffin came to NY with Kate Ryan most likely her cousin around 1911/1912.My grandmother's mother was Honora Ryan & may have been from the Ryans of Longstone tipperary co.I have found Kate & her family in Cullen on the 1911 census.Bridget lived in Milltown which is next to Cullen in Tipperary County.She is listed on the 1911 census & it looks like they came over right after the census was taken.I see both Bridget & Kate along with another girl Bridget Kelly from Cullen on the ship.If you look at the records both girls changed their ages when they came over [My Grandmother did the same knocking almost 8 years off her age].I am looking into the Griffin family & would love to ask you some questions.I am hoping that my grandmother's siblings had children.So far I have found out some info about 2 of her family.one died young in NYC.There is a good chance we are related thru the Ryan family.you can reach me here or at chiprenner at gmail dot com .
