Hi Judy ,
Its been my experience that most immigrants from Ireland
went to Canada 1st like mine in 1872, since poor and no papers were
Involved / needed because they were "British" citizens and Canada
Loyalists were British etc. Walt

QUESTION ON SCOTCH IRISH IMMIGRANT.
I would like some ideas or opinions on whether a person might have gone
straight to Canada or would have come to the Colonies first. Grandfather
was in Canada between 1783 - 1788. Area settled in was a long ways from the
Ports or Pictou. Closer to Niagara Falls. Was 26-28 years traveled with
young companion or relative the same age. The area they went to was
desolate. No people, houses, etc.
He had enough wear for all to get a home built and exist. So must have some
money and I think cash was hard pressed then especially coming from Ireland.
Lived in Loyalists area but, was not in the American Revolution.
