And on these hands
that may not lift the sword,
This body trembling like a wind-blown
No woman's loved me,
no man sought my help.
"Fergus and the Druid",
from The Rose, by
William Butler Yeats
O, Ireland isn't it grand you
Like a bride in her rich adornin'
And with all the pent-up love
my heart I bid you
the top o' the mornin',
The family later emigrated to the Derbyshire area of England in the mid-1800's.
At the age of twenty-four, Richard emigrated to America, in 1870, on the steamship, "City of Paris", where he settled in Clearfield, Pennsylvania, after his marriage to my great-grandmother, Agnes Jane Ball, of Houtzdale, Pennsylvania.
Richard began working in a coal mine at the age of seven, and continued working in the coal mines as a supervisor, after arriving in America, along with being a Justice of the Peace and a merchant in Clearfield, our hometown.
After the death of his father, Patrick, Richard's mother, Catherine, along with two of her sons, Martin and James, ran the Bull's Head Inn in Whittington, England, which still exists today.
Richard died on August 3, 1923 and is buried in the old Catholic Cemetery in Clearfield, Pennsylvania.
