    McGorlick or McGolrick or McGoldrick, Bridget 
    • Dorothy Golden-Clingman writes that John Golden was an only son, of Peter, and that there were at least three daughters. I have now confirmed that one daughter Bridget McGorlick married James Flynn 11 April 1864 in Wakefield, Yorkshire. They had a son, Hugh Flynn born Wakefield in 1866. The marriage registration for James Flynn & Bridget McGorlick in 1864 in Wakefield, Yorkshire, England records the father of James as Terence Flynn. There is a Terence Flynn married to Maria Travers in Ennishmagrath Roman Catholic parish, county Leitrim, Ireland in 1835. They had a daughter Mary baptised in 1837, who would be a sibling to James. The available parish register only spans the years? 1836-1839 so a baptism for James was not located. The Witnesses at the marriage of Terence Flynn & Maria Travers were Hugh Daly and Brig Higgins. The first child of JAMES Flynn & Bridget McGorlick is named HUGH.
      The witness at the marriage of James Flynn & Bridget McGorlick in Wakefield is JOHN TRAVIS and Ann Murray. The possible conclusion here is that James Flynn's mother Maria Travers & Terence Travers (spouse of Mary McCanna) were brother and sister, making John Travis the 1st cousin to James Flynn. John Travis was a witness for his 1st cousin James Flynn's marriage and it had nothing to do with the fact that John Travis's sister married Bridget McGorlick's brother John. Confusing but likely.

      The final sister Mary Anne McGorlick stayed in Ireland and married a Royal Constabulary named Andrew Sweeney. He got Peter McGorlick?s/McGoldrick?s land. Here is the will:
