Ancestor Daniel and his older brother James arrived in New York City, USA on the HMS Empire from Liverpool, England two weeks after the Irish Riot of July 1857. Daniel reported his age as 18 but he was 15 at that time. Daniel and his brother likely left County Donegal for Manchester, UK and then traveled by train to Liverpool which was the prevailing route.
