My Morris HIGHLAND came to America via NY in 1837, according to his
declaration of intent, but I found him in Pittsfield, Berkshire Co., MA. By 1850 he
moved to Illinois. Being that I found in in MA I thought he would of come to the
USA via Boston's port. I have more to do.

Yes, my ancestor, Nelson RYLAND, born 1805 in Westmeath, was in Morgan
County alabama USA by 1838.
I have not been able to find him on any passenger manifest. Where did your
ancestor settle in the USA?
I have read that people from Westmeath sometimes went to Liverpool for
passage to America.
Also, besides NY, New Orleans was a major port of entry in that time period.
