You asked for help.....I would suggest giving up on trying to
find the name of the ship. Most likely you will never find it
because we don't have lists of names of all the people coming
till 1820. You don't have to believe me. Check Cormack's book
on immigration (In a Border's bookstore near you) or
http://genealogy.com/university.html -- free courses.
Check FILBY. If you don't know that resource, check our webpages.
What you should be focusing on is researching American records
to locate the Irish county. Without it you'll have a heck of a
time tracing them in Ireland. Again, check the above URL on
how to do that. And our website.
Best of luck,
