Loretta Myrter A little Irish homestead
on a hilltop wild and free
with a little brown road
winding
like a ribbon to the sea
I see it in my dreaming
And the brown road calls to me.

Loretta Myrter Look on my thin grey hair
and hollow cheeks
And on these hands
that may not lift the sword,
This body trembling like a wind-blown
reed.
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
look-
Like a bride in her rich adornin'
And with all the pent-up love
of
my heart I bid you
the top o' the mornin',

Loretta Myrter These things, I warmly wish
for you-
Someone to love,
Some work to do,
A bit of o' sun
A bit o' cheer
And a guardian angel
Always near.

Don Duckett Jr. On March 17, 1844 a son was born to Patrick and Catherine Meares Duckett at Nangor Castle, Condalkin, County Dublin, Ireland. Even though their first son was named Patrick Alexander, Patrick and Catherine proceeded to name their second son Patrick Joseph. . .on account of his being born on St. Patrick's Day. Patrick Joseph grew up in a growing family that eventually included nine children. The family left Ireland in the mid 1850's moving to Derbyshire, England. In 1868 Patrick J. left England for America. He visited with his elder sister Mary Whiteman in Allegheny County, Pa. There he met Sarah Hodgson and married. Patrick and Sarah settled in Clearfield, PA and raised eleven children of their own.

Loretta Myrter My great-grandfather, Richard Duckett, the son of Patrick Alexander and Catherine Meares Duckett, of Athlone, County Westmeath, Ireland, was born on June 19, 1846, at Nangor Castle, Clondalkin, County Dublin, Ireland, while his parents were employed by Peter Rorke, the owner of Nangor Castle.

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.
