Families emigrated from Cappoquin and Lismore, West Waterford, Ireland to an area North East of Honesdale PA., from 1839 to 1855. They acquired 50 to 75 acre farms in that area. Few if any memories survived of these people here in Ireland. Through a few chance encounters I discovered my great granduncle, also William was one of these emigrants. Two first cousins of his Margaret and Brigid Arrigan were there ahead of him. Forty two farms were taken up by these families and their descendants are still in the area...Tom Fives of Fives Road, Honesdale,probably a cousin,was contacted by me, with the help of Honesdale Historical Society. He is a mine of information, which is very much appreciated by me.
