Born ~ 1814 or 1817 Ireland

probably arrived before 12-16-1846 (Margaret's birth) but the 1850 census shows a John living without a wife and family. Were they living separately for work? Was he married before Sarah? If so, was Margaret Sarah's daughter? There are a number of other with similar surnames in adjoining towns. Did they come as siblings or cousins?

Beginning in 1862, those who died in the hospital were buried at a cemetery two miles northwest of Fort Monroe.  In 1866, this cemetery officially became Hampton National Cemetery.  After the war, the remains of Union soldiers were reinterred here from sites in Big Bethel, Newport News, Jamestown, Craney Island, Deep Creek, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Blackwater, Smithfield, Suffolk, and Cherry Stone.

The cemetery originally covered 4.75 acres, but has since increased to 27 acres on two discontinuous parcels.  The older Hampton Section is at the intersection of Cemetery Road and Marshall Avenue, while the Phoebus Section, added in 1891 due to the need for additional burial space at this national cemetery, is one-half mile east, near the intersection of West County Street and Frissell Street.  The Hampton Section is roughly rectangular, containing six burial sections, and is bounded by Hampton University on all sides.  The main entrance at the center of the northern boundary is marked by a 12-foot wide, wrought-iron gate with granite piers and pedestrian gates on both sides.  A five-foot tall stone wall encloses the north and south borders of the old section, with a granite wall surmounted by an iron picket fence enclosing the others.  The roadway leading from the entrance terminates in a circle looping around the flagpole, approximately one-third of the way into the cemetery grounds.

John and Sarah

So if Connecticut birth is correct for Margaret John must have arrived before 12-16-1846. (?? It is also possible that the birth was recorded well after her birth and stated as a Connecticut birth although if might have been in Ireland or during the passage. )

Transatlantic Crossing Clarke Historical Library

The conditions on immigrant ships at this time (middle 1840s) were unbelievably bad. Owners sold their excess ship space to agents whose only interest was to fill it with as many passengers as possible. The immigrants were crowded together into unsanitary quarters for voyages of 6 weeks or more & were particularly susceptible to the ravages of disease.
Prot. Crusade (note), p. 211

Many early immigrant carriers were, in the words of a contemporary newspaper (Quebec Gazette, June 2, 1834), "the worst of all the merchant ships of Gt. Britain & Ireland; with few exceptions they are very old, very ill-manned, very ill found; & considering the dangers of an early spring voyage to this port from ice & tempestuous weather, it is astonishing that more serious accidents have not occurred." 
There was an improvement in sailing vessels in the 1840s & '50s, which is called "the golden age of sail." In the 1850s iron began it replace wood on a large scale.

As late as 1860 fine clipper ships were still being built.
In 1856 the "Royal Charter" provided the 1st important trial of a combination clipper ship with auxiliary steam power. This practical combination had been used long before its initiation on the Atlantic. As early as 1803 the first successful operation was the "Charlotte Dundas" on the Forth & Clyde canal. 
In 1833 the Royal William was the 1st ship to cross the Atlantic entirely under steam.
The 1st Cunard liner, the Britannia, created a flurry of excitement when she arrived at Boston in 1840, but the Cunard liners & those like them were only for the wealthy. In 1849 Robert Gourlay observed that by steamship, "one may leave the county of Fife (Scotland) & be in Boston on the 11th day after departure, & within a fortnight bathe in the Mississippi." He suggested that by dispensing with frills & "crowding in" the emigrants it would be possible to reduce the fare from $125 to $30. 
In 1863 45% of the British emigrants to America traveled in steamships, while 3 years later the number had increased to 81%. Sailing ships continued to be patronized by small groups of the poorest emigrants in later years, particularly from the Irish ports at a distance from the steamship service.
Steamship service had been in operation for nearly 20 years on the N.Y. route before it was inaugurated to Quebec & Montreal. In 1856 the Allan Line fortnightly Atlantic mail service commenced. The record of this company shows the losses experienced by the early S. S. companies. In 1857 the Can[adian?( illeg.)] was wrecked through the stupidity of a pilot. In 1859 the Indean was lost near Halifax. In 1860 the Hungarian ran ashore near Cape Sable & all on board perished. In 1861 a second Canadian was crushed in an ice field in the Strait of Belle Isle, & the North Briton was wrecked in a snow storm. In 1863 both the Anglo-Saxon & the Norwegian were lost, & in the following year the Bohemian struck a rock off the state of Maine. The Allan Line was kept solvent only by subsidies from the Canadian government.

The Irish who landed in America before the Civil War came on sailing vessels. While in the 1850s the steamship was supplanting sail & forecasting the later great emigrant trade, the price still remained beyond the means of the Irish. The Civil War marked the transition from sail to steamer for the Catholic Irish & the passing of the American merchantman which had carried so many thousands to America.
April & May were the recommended months for the emigrant to take passage. The average length of the voyage on a sailing ship from Liverpool to Quebec was 6 weeks; from Irish ports 4 days shorter; from Liverpool to N.Y. the passage averaged 5 weeks.
- Patton, To the Golden Door, p. 154-55 

...When Stephen de Vere sailed in the steerage in 1847 he found hundreds of people lying there like sacks together, quite motionless, with neither light nor air; many, struck down with fever, had "no food or medicine other than casual charity," & could scarcely turn in their narrow berths. [de Vere was a humanitarian who sailed to Canada as a steerage passenger in 1847 so "that he might speak as a witness reflecting the sufferings of the emigrants."]3
Prices for passage at first fluctuated. 1846 passage to Canada - 50s-60s; to the U.S. - 70s to €5. At the end of the famine period, cheapest passage to N.Y. - 75s; to Canada - 65s.
The passage averaged 40 days.
U.S. ships considered best because Congress demanded more deck space per passenger, & they were speedier.
Mortality high. In 1847 1 passenger in 40 died on vessels from Limerick, Killala, & New Ross. On Liverpool vessels, 1 in 14 - on Cork vessels, 1 in 9. Some vessels from same ports at same time had much higher mortality. One factor seems constant, the vessels from larger city ports had higher mortality. Douglas, Canadian quarantine surgeon, found that typhus was contracted ashore. He concluded the true seedbeds were the slums where the immigrants lodged. This [was] not the only factor - they were weakened by privation when they came aboard - the crowding & lack of sanitation aboard.

Storm - The confusion above deck & the tramping around frightened those in steerage almost out of their wits. The air was foul, the hatches had been battened down for a week. With each roll of the ship the people in the crowded berths were bumped & bruised as they were hurled from side to side against the rough partitions, and there was real danger of crushing the children to death. Water leaked through the decks in such quantity that the beds were soaked & the floor ankle-deep. Candle lanterns could not be lighted, nor had there been cooking for days... "A sudden heave of the ship," wrote one traveler, "often dislodged whole families from their berths, & hurled them headlong among their companions who lay on the opposite side"... 
A cabin passenger describes the situation on a vessel where 180 people were confined in a dark space "not much larger than a drawing room. I popped my head down for a minute or two, but the smell was too powerful for my olfactory nerves - children crying, women screaming; butter, biscuit treacle, herrings, & potatoes, all rolling from side to side, made up a scene of misery & confusion such as I never saw before."
- Edwin C. Guillet, The Great Mig., p. 81-82...

Stephen E. De Vere, a public-spirited Irish landlord, performed a notable act of disinterested philanthropy when he traveled steerage in an emigrant vessel in April, 1847. His description of his experiences eventually came to the notice of a committee of the House of Lords. It must be taken not only as characteristic of conditions during the fever epidemic during the fever & cholera years, but also typical of the terrifying & degrading experiences through which hundreds of thousands passed in ordinary times.
"Hundreds of poor people, men, women, & children of all ages, from the driveling idiot of 90 to the babe just born, huddle together without light, without air, wallowing in filth & breathing a fetid atmosphere, sick in body, dispirited in heart, the fever patients lying between the sound, in sleeping places so narrow as almost to deny them the power of indulging, by a change of position, the natural restlessness of the disease; by their ravings disturbing those around...living without food or medicine except as administered by the hand of casual charity, dying without the voice of spiritual consolation, and buried in the deep without the rites of the church.
The food is generally ill-selected and seldom sufficiently cooked, because of the insufficiency & bad construction of the cooking places. The supply of water, hardly enough for cooking & drinking, does not allow washing. In many ships the filthy beds, teeming with all abominations, are never required to be brought to deck & aired; the narrow space between the berths and the piles of boxes are never washed or scraped, but breathes up a damp stench, until the day before arrival at quarantine, when all hands are required to 'scrub up' and put on a fair face for the doctor & gov. inspector. No moral restraint is attempted, the voice of prayer is never heard. Drunkenness, with its consequent train of ruffianly debasement, is not discouraged, because it is profitable to the captain who traffics in grog.
The meat was of the worst quality. The supply of water shipped on board was abundant, but the quantity served out to the passengers was so scanty that they were frequently obliged to throw overboard their salt provisions & rice (a most important article of their food) because they had not water enough for the necessary cooking & the satisfying of their raging thirst afterwards. They could only afford water for washing by withdrawing it from the cooking of their food. I have known persons to remain for days together in their dark, close berths because they thus suffered less from hunger...
The master during the whole voyage never entered the steerage, and would listen to no complaints; the dietary contracted for was, with some exceptions, nominally supplied, though at irregular periods; but false measures were used (in which the water & several article of dry food were served), the gallon measure containing but three quarts, which fact I proved in Quebec & had the captain fined for. Once or twice a week ardent spirits were sold indiscriminately to the passengers, producing scenes of unchecked blackguardism beyond description; & lights were prohibited because the ship - with her open-fire grates upon deck - with lucifer matches & lighted pipes used secretly in the sleeping berths - was freighted with government powder for the garrison in Quebec." 
- Stephen E. De Vere to T. F. Elliot in "Evidence before the Select 
Committee of the House of Lords on Colonisation from Ireland, 1847," p. 458

To offset the attractions of the U.S., the British government consistently made the passage to British N. Am. cheaper than to the U.S., & in addition transported poor immigrants who declared their intention of settling Canada free, in barges, up the St. Lawrence to the interior. The urgent need of the British N. Am. colonies for population was not the government's only reason for encouraging Irish emigration. The fear of an enormous poverty-stricken Irish migration into Britain was always present... Advantage was taken of the low fare & often the emigrant, alleging his intention of settling in Canada, procured free passage up the St. Law. before making his entry into the U.S. simply by walking across the border. In 1843, out of 20,892 emigrants only 85 settled in eastern Canada, & only 208 in Montreal...
A man, his wife, and four small children, Belfast to Quebec in 1842, €6; but if he went to N.Y. it was €21.
C. Woodham-Smith, Hunger, p. 210-12

At Liverpool, the cost of steerage passage to N.Y. fell from 12 pounds ($60) in 1816 to just over 3 pounds ($15+) in 30 years (1846)... The drop was nowhere as great or as abrupt as in Irish ports, where passage to Quebec during the 1820s (1840s?) could be obtained for as little as 30 shillings ($3.75)...
Since many of those engaged in the emigrant trade had personal or business connections with the U.S., they were able in the late 1820s to establish Am. agencies for the sale of prepaid passage tickets. This enabled those who had migrated earlier to bring over their relatives and friends, & the arrival of tickets and money from Am. proved an added stimulus to emigration generally. What proportion of emigrants traveled on pre-paid tickets is not known, though a sample survey conducted by the Irish Emigrant Society of N.Y. in 1843 suggested that it might be as high as 1/3. This estimate did not take into account the great numbers who, though not in receipt of prepaid tickets, had their fares paid by remittances from Am..
- Maldwyn A. Jones, Am. Immigration, p. 105

It is estimated that well over one-half of the emigrants to Am. in some years had their passage paid in whole or in part by friends. The peak year for such assistance was 1854, when a total of €1,730,000 ($8,650,000) was received in the United Kingdom; and in addition to this, the passage of many thousands was paid in N.Y..
- Edwin C. Guillet, The Great Mig., p. 34

How did the poor finance passage? Hidden in the thatch of many a poor cottage were a few sovereigns, put aside for an emergency. The emergency had come. The sale of furniture netted a few pounds. Landlords complained that out of pity they had not pressed their tenants for last year's rent, & now this rent was taking them forever out of reach. Others did not hesitate to beg, & those who contributed believed they were giving to the most worthy of causes.
Another important source was the contributions of relatives in the U.S. & Canada, who may have thought the funds were for relief; but the recipient hastened to buy passage, the best relief he could think of.
- Marcus Hansen, The Atlantic Mig., p. 244-51

 

Transatlantic Crossing - Length of Voyage

Before 1835 emigrants were officially advised to make preparations for a voyage of 12 weeks, but in that year the period was reduced to ten. Some emigrants were fortunate to make a voyage of 25 days, while others were driven by contrary winds to the Azores or Greenland, & barely survived a terrifying experience of 4 months. The average passage to Quebec was around 45 days... Ships & weather varied so greatly that averages meant but little to the individual. It was always advisable to take passage to Montreal rather than Quebec, since captains frequently charged no more for the additional 180 mi..
- Edwin C. Guillet, The Great Mig., p. 50

When Old Man McCann came over [to Beaver Island] they got within sight of land when a contrary wind blew them out to sea again. It was 9 days later before they landed.
- Roland, p. 146

April & May were the recommended months for the emigrant to take passage. The average length of the voyage on a sailing ship from Liverpool to Quebec was 6 weeks; from Irish ports 4 days shorter; from Liverpool to N.Y. the passage averaged 5 weeks.

At the beginning of the 19th century, agriculture was Ireland’s dominant industry.  The English prohibited the Irish from practicing their Catholic faith.  The English stripped a number of wealthy Catholics of their wealth, their positions, and their homes, which left them paupers.

Moreover, no Irish Catholic was allowed to own land, vote, hold office, receive an education, own a gun, or even own a horse.  Large areas of land were under the control of landowners living in England.  The crops that they grew were harvested and then transported to Great Britain for the absentee owner.  Irish farmers were allowed only to raise a small crop of pototoes, turnips, and cabbage; these crops formed their diet.  What little they did have and grow they often shared with neighbors.  The average wage for farm laborers in Ireland was about eight pence a day.  At the time, this was only about a fifth of what a wage earner might make in the United States, and this was one of the first reasons that led the Irish to emigrate to America.

But why did the majority of the Irish come to America in the 1840's?  The main reason is a result of a potato famine that occurred.  In the space of five years (1845-1850), a great hunger overtook Ireland when the potato crop failed.  During this time period more than a million Irish died of starvation.  When the potato crops first began to fail, it was because of frost, dry rot, and curl.  In 1845, the potato famine ruined about three-quarters of the country’s crop.  Over four million people in Ireland relied on the potato as their chief food source.  A major part of the food produced in Ireland was exported to other countries, and  so this was a loss to them as well.  The newest wave of potato problems was caused by a fungus, Phytophthora infestans, which had probably made its way into the country on a ship.  The fungus invaded the potato plant, germinated, and aided by the warm weather, reproduced rapidly,.  The crop that was planted was done so with slightly diseased potato seeds from the previous year.  Soon, the potato crop was covered with a black rot.  Acre upon acre of land was covered with this rot, and as the potato harvest failed, the price of food soared.  Thousands of farmers depended on the potato to pay rents to British landlords.  People who did eat the rotted potatoes got sick and died.  With all this combined, a total loss of crop in 1846 was experienced and over the next year an estimated 350,000 more people died of starvation.                                                                                

Because the famine took such a toll, evictions were taking place because the Irish had to income to pay to the landowners.  The famine changed the social and cultural structure of Ireland in many ways.  The most significant was the mass immigration to the United States.  To get Irish farmers off the land, the English landowners paid the smallest price they could to get passage on a ship to America for the farmers.  The landowners did not care about the ship’s conditions; they just wanted the land.

By the end of 1854 nearly two million people, about a quarter of the Irish population, had emigrated to the United States. 

The United States census of 1850 revealed that there were 961,719 residents of the United States we were of Irish nativity.  They mainly lived in New York and surrounding states.  The Irish Emigrant Society tried to get the Irish to move to more inland states, but many had no means for transportation or to get settled.  Therefore, they settled in those cities, like New York, Boston, Massachusetts, etc. where they had landed.

In the early nineteenth century sailing ships took from six to fourteen weeks to cross the Atlantic Ocean.  Provisions on these ships often ran short.  Some captains made extra money by charging the immigrants high prices for food.  Captains were accused of using the rations to control the behavior of some female passengers.  These women were told that they could get more food in exchange for favors.  Later, after performing certain favors, they were told that there was no extra food for them.  When the women arrived in port and complained to officials, an investigation was launched.  The US Congress passed a law that would require captains and officers be sent to prison if found to be committing sexual offenses against their female passengers.

In 1842, the British government attempted to end the exploitation of passengers by passing legislation that made it the responsibility of the shipping company to provide adequate food and water for the crossing.  An amount of seven pounds of food a week per person was required.  However, this was not very much, considering the provisions consisted of bread, biscuits and potatoes.  The edibility of the food left something to be desired; bread had often been made by adding old bread which had been ground up with a little fresh flour and sugar and then being rebaked.

Water was another ration on the ship that was not very good.  Often water was put into barrels that had once transported oil, vinegar, wine, or turpentine.  To increase profits, shipowners would load as many people as possible on board their ship.  Although ships designed for emigrant traffic appeared before the middle of the  century, the majority of the emigrant ships were freighters rarely over three or four hundred tons in size.  For the privilege of herding emigrants into the steerage, agents paid a fixed rate to shipowners, and neither owners or agents showed much concern about overloading a ship with human cargo.  The steerage deck was usually four to six feet high and contained hard wooden berths arranged in two layers and filling most of the floor space, while the lower part of the hold contained heavy baggage and chests, water, and cordwood.  Since the only entrance to the steerage was by ladder from a hole in the deck of the hatchway, there was almost no ventilation.  Fresh air was admitted only through the hatches, which were shut in rough weather when air was most needed.[1]   Travelers had no room to move around.  As a result of this, the US Congress passed a law entitled the American Passenger Act. This act set a legal minimum of space for each passenger.  Consequently, shipowners had to have new ships built.  These new ships had three decks, and the immigrants were transported only on the top two decks.  Even though there was more space, the trip was still unpleasant.  The lower deck was very dark and lacking fresh air.  Those in the lower deck suffered, and those on the top two decks suffered as well; having to smell the stench from the deck below.

There were many dangers for passengers crossing the Atlantic Ocean.  These included fires, ship wrecks, and disease.  In 1848 a ship called the Ocean Monarch caught fire and 176 lives were lost.  As ships were being built bigger more casualties would result.  In a five year period forty-three emigrant ships out of 6,877 failed to reach their destination.  This resulted in an estimated 1,043 passenger deaths.  One ship left the city of Glasgow carrying 480 passengers and was never heard from again.  Serious outbreaks of cholera were abundant.  In a one month time period, out of 77 ships headed for America, many passengers died of cholera.  In the end, an estimated 1,328 emigrants lost their life on the way to the U.S. because of this disease.  The most common killer though was typhus.  This did not help the passengers who had already been weakened by poor diets.  In 1847 alone, an approximate 7,000 people from Ireland died of typhus while on their way to America.  Another 10,000 died soon after arriving in quarantine areas in the harbors.

The combined forces of famine, disease, and emigration depopulated Ireland.  The famine convinced the Irish citizens of the urgent need for political change.  It also led to changes in the century-old agricultural practices, bringing to an end the division of family plots and making them into tiny lots capable of sustaining life only with a potato crop.  The United States was truly the land of opportunity during the mid-1800s.  The economy was booming, and opportunities on farms and in the workplace were available for anyone willing to work.  The influx of immigrants served to improve traveling conditions.  Steamships were now able to reach the United States in ten to twelve days instead of ten to twelve weeks.

Life in New York - Occupations & Housing

It was commonly noted that there were several kinds of power working in the United States:  water power, steam power, and Irish power.  The Irish worked harder than any ethnic group.  The Irish also worked on building the railroads of the United States.  Some were able to save enough money to buy land and establish themselves as farmers along the routes that they had helped to build.  Many Irish immigrants moved to Pennsylvania and became coalminers.  Working conditions in the mines were appalling as there were no safety requirements.

By 1850, twenty-six percent of the residents of New York were Irish.  The newly arrived Irish immigrants were considered by many to be the lowest rung of the social ladder.  Unlike the Irish who emigrated to America before the famine began, these Irish were poor and uneducated.  They lived in dirty overcrowded tenements in east coast cities.  Tenement houses appeared in response to the needs of a growing population in congested lower Manhattan.  Crowding into reconstructed dwellings, or specially designed tenements, immigrant families occupied the poorest districts of the city where unenforced housing regulations, uncleaned streets, an ineffective sewage system, absence of bathing facilities, diseased people, lack of medical care, a high incidences of crime and juvenile delinquency ran rampant.[2]

There was a reaction against these Irish immigrants.  In 1843, a group was formed which became known as the “Know-Nothing Party”.  This group, made up of lower and middle class ranks of native-born citizens, opposed immigration, hated Catholicism, and wanted to ban parochial schools.  The group saw themselves as the defender of “American values” and “American traditions” which were held only by native-born citizens.  The group believed that the Irish were the reason for the rise in crime, poverty, disease, and unemployment in the early 1840s.

Because the Irish immigrant numbers were so high, they were considered to be a drain on society.  They were not liked because they were thought to take away too many jobs from the people who were already in the United States.  Many help ads in the newspapers included the phrase “Irish need not apply.”  However, as time passed the immigrants slowly became part of the normal population of America.

The Irish were stereotyped by the non-Irish as drunks, criminals, poor, diseased, stupid, and lazy.  Cartoons filled newspapers, which stereotyped the Irish wearing top hats and waistcoats, having big noses and carrying bottles of whiskey.  This was of course much different than the way the Irish saw themselves.  Some Irish attempted to establish a setting of their own and escape the city’s overcrowded, crime-ridden tenement districts by settling or squatting on undeveloped land in Manhattan, some in Seneca Village on what is now Central Park.

Members of the Know-Nothing Party would reply “I don’t know” or “I know nothing” when questioned about their policies concerning outsiders.  But political action against the immigrants did not end there.  The anger of Americans reflected the desire to prevent people of racial, ethnic, or religious minorities from competing for jobs or gaining political power.  Yet many of these newcomers moved into positions of power.  Immigrants who came to New York before the famine held supervisory jobs in industry and white-collar positions in corporations.  Women worked in laundries, light manufacturing, and retail businesses.  Women who came to America as a result of the famine worked mostly as domestics.

Women from Ireland tended to delay marriage in order to become domestic servants.  The Irish were the only immigrant group in which women outnumbered men.  Unlike their American-born contemporaries, the Irish women fostered female self-assertion and social independence.  It was not a problem for women to travel to America on their own and delay marriage.  Although domestic work was hard and the hours were long, these immigrants were paid relatively well.  Despite the anti-Irish feeling, the great preponderance of Irish housekeepers, nurses, chambermaids, laundresses, and cooks was evidence of a pressing need for them.[3]   They used their wages to survive and make their own way in America, but they would also send money home to Ireland to help support the family that they had left behind.  Servants generally ate leftovers from the family meals, which might or might not be enough.  Servants were always “on call,” sometimes having one evening off a week.  Their rooms were either in an attic or basement, and furnished with belongings of the families in which they lived.  Their rooms lacked privacy and were often shared with other servants.  Some rooms were hot in summer and cold in winter.  There were often no fireplaces in these rooms, no windows, no heat, and no stoves.

Although Irish Americans were victims of discrimination, they later displayed animosity towards members of new immigrant groups.  During the 1840s and 1850s, the numbers of groups who opposed immigrants grew rapidly.

Very little was done to assist the immigrants in 1847. The first emigrant society formed in 1850, but even during that time, the immigrant lived in deplorable slums, sleeping as many as eighteen persons in an 18 foot by five foot high cellar without windows. The Irish, having no technical skills, were forced into casual labor, cleaning stables, operating pushcarts, loading and unloading vessels. They were exploited by greedy landlords who found them shelter in rickety

tenements of deplorable filth and squalor. The immigrants, who had known no better conditions in Ireland, did not expect more, and so they continued to live in the worst slums imaginable.

Despite extreme conditions, the Irish were survivors.  New York was a rough city, and received about half the emigrant Irish population. By 1847, New York was bursting at the seams with tens of thousands of emigrant Irish pouring into the city. They camped everywhere.  They kept pigs in vacant lots, and let them loose to forage at night. Cattle could be seen meandering through the streets. Offensive tasks such as animal slaughtering, horse-skinning, bone boiling, and glue making was done in the tenement yards, making a stench that could be smelled for miles.

Shanties sprang up everywhere, and health problems soared.  The Irish were the most  unfortunate of the emigrants. They became children of the slums, the poorest members of society and the least respected. It took them the longest to be assimilated, and they waited the longest before opportunities were made available to them.

The Irish newcomers were not at all prepared for urban life.  They found progress up the economic ladder very slow.  Their work was dull and hard, and mortality rates were extremely high.  Many immigrants arrived with little or no money and were therefore forced to stay and work where they landed.

The reason for immigration between 1838 and 1850 was clear.  Land was plentiful and fairly cheap, jobs were abundant, and labor was scarce.  The US was a strong magnet for immigrants, and reports from earlier immigrants were that the streets were “paved with gold.”

The Catholic Church and politics were very important to the Irish Americans.  The church in Ireland had been a pillar of strength.  When the Irish suffered hostility because of their religious beliefs, the church in America became a source of spiritual comfort.  Upon emigrating, the Irish quickly began becoming priests, nuns, and leaders in the church.  Politics and religion helped the Irish overcome the bitter poverty they had once faced.

Many Irish immigrants were so poor that they had no place to go except to public poorhouses or lunatic asylums.  In New York City in the 1850s, eighty-five percent of the foreign-born admitted to Bellevue Hospital had Irish surnames, and most of the admissions to Blackwell’s Island insane asylum were also Irish.  After many years though, Irish Americans moved away from being poor, into better jobs, and better housing.

Successes in New York & Elsewhere

When the Irish first came to New York City, they could easily find jobs.  Little skill was needed to load and unload ships on the docks or building streets.  They did not have trouble finding jobs in the growing transportation sector either.  All that was needed was a strong body and a willingness to work.  The Irish were willing to do this, while others were not.  Work contractors in New York City put advertisements in Irish newspapers looking for laborers to work on the railways, roads, and canals.  These advertisements attracted many Irish to America.  As American cities were undergoing rapid growth and beginning to develop an infrastructure, creating governmental machinery, and the personnel necessary to run it, the Irish and their children got in on the ground floor.   Irish workmen not only laid the horsecar and streetcar tracks, they were also the first drivers and conductors.  First and some second generation immigrant workers worked largely at unskilled or semi-skilled occupations, third generation immigrants worked increasingly at more skilled trades. any in the industry sect found themselves in the positions of bosses, foremen, and in some cases, owners of their own businesses.

In the United States, a long time would pass before the Irish would really gain full acceptance from those who had immigrated before them.  Keeping the Irish going on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean was a deep religious heritage and a strong desire to be free.  The ultimate realization of freedom by the Irish both in America and in Ireland has helped to strengthen the ties between the two countries.

Michael Cudahy serves as an excellent example as an immigrant who did well in America.  He started a highly profitable meat-packing business in Milwaukee.  John Downey made his money in real estate in California, as well as being the governor there.  Willam Grace ran a steamship company and ended up becoming the mayor of New York City.  A fortunate few Irish immigrants owned boarding houses or saloons.

It was a slow process, and often the second generation lived only a little better than the first.  Irish women born in the United States took advantage of public education and went on to become teachers, nurses, and public employees.  These were the most respected jobs that women could hold.  During the second generation, Irish American men started to hold more important positions such as firemen and some became city policemen.  New York adopted a full-time professional police force in 1845, which proved to be a great opportunity for Irish men active in ward politics.  Volunteer fire companies, made up of Irish men, also played a major role in city politics.  The Irish policemen and fireman are not just stereotypes; the Irish all but monopolized those jobs when they were being created.

The Irish were important to the garment and skilled needle trades and quickly came to dominate a large share of those businesses.  Daniel Devlin, an Irish immigrant, had one of the largest tailoring firms in New York during the 1840s and 1850s.  He employed a number of Irish immigrants in his business.  Another immigrant, A. T. Stewart, became one of the city’s leading dry good merchants, as well as one of the leading employers of Irish women and one of the wealthiest during his time.  Even though the Irish worked long hard hours, they had no desire to return to Ireland and go back to what they had come from.

Irishmen did well in New York City.  Many became well known because of their involvement in local politics.  The Irish tended to support the Democratic Party rather than the Republican Party.  They had little sympathy for slaves from the south, as they feared that the slaves would move north and take their jobs away from them.  By 1840, nearly every white male in the US could vote.  In New York City, the Irish became “party managers” who had a lot of influence within the Democratic Party.  These men became virtual one-man charitable institutions, raising monies for christenings, weddings, and funerals. Giving money to poor widows and doing favors for people living on the edge of homelessness and starvation.  In return, the grateful people turned out to vote and would vote as they were told to.  This system lasted well into the twentieth century.

 CONCLUSION:

The parts that immigrants played in the growth of New York City was large, even though they were not always welcomed with “open arms”.  The story of Irish immigration brings an understanding of what it means to live in a free land, and a more full appreciation of the life we lead today, as well as a thankfulness to those who long ago paved the way.  In her book, The Great Hunger, Cecil Woodham-Smith says "The story of the Irish in the New World  is not a romantic story of liberty and success, but the history of a bitter struggle, as bitter, as painful, though not as long-drawn-out as the struggle by which the Irish at last won the right to be a nation."
