Donald Raper My great-grandfather Patrick Godfrey came from Ireland to N.Y. in 1841. He was about age 10. His family travelled to Canada and first settled in Grey County, Ontario. When Patrick was only 18, he became one of the first two pioneers to clear land near the present-day town of Walkerton. Many of his offspring migrated to the U.S, to such states as Michigan in the Gagetown area and to North Dakota, to places like Mount Carmel, Bottineau and Langdon. Patrick married Rose Denny. His parents were Edmund Godfrey and Alice Gorman.
