HARRINGTON family history

On 15 May 1897, John HARRINGTON, 24, laborer, arrived at Ellis Island NY on the ship Campania from Queenstown [now Cobh, Cork, Ireland], headed for Butte MT. He was in the #1 forward compartment. The next line of the manifest lists Maggie HARRINGTON, 25, servant, also going to Butte MT, but traveling in compartment #6 aft. Ellis Island records.

The closest likely match I could find to such a "John HARRINGTON", in the 1881 British census, is a family in Gelligaer, Glamorgan, Wales UK, with a John, age 9, born in Ireland on 2 Sep 1872. No mention there of a "Maggie", a year or so older. However, John boarded ship in 1897 at Queenstown, Ireland.

In 1900, John HARRINGTON, born Oct 1873 Ireland, was a copper miner in Butte MT, boarding in the household of Jerry ONEILL, 66 Ireland. --12 Jun 1900, Silver Bow twp MT, ED92 p8B.

In 1910, John HARRINGTON, 35 IRL, immigrated 1897, now naturalized, single, lived in a rooming house at 316 N Wyoming in Butte MT, worked in the copper mine. He'd been out of work 12 weeks, and was unable to read or write. Also in the rooming house was Michael HARRINGTON, 34 IRL, and Michael SULLIVAN, 28 IRL, both copper miners. --15 Apr 1910, Butte, Silver Bow, MT ward 1, ED89 p1B He was enumerated at the same address twice more, showing age 36, immigration in 1898, full time work, and literate. -27 Apr 1910, ward 1 Butte, Silver Bow MT, ED89 p11B & 28 Apr 1910 on p12A. A possible future bride is Margaret SULLIVAN, 26 IRL, a housekeeper at the Catholic Rectory in Walkerville, immigrated 1905. --8 Apr 1910, Walkerville ward 3, Silver Bow MT, ED124 p3B.

Florry F HARRINGTON was born 17 Jan 1916 in Los Angeles CA to John & Margaret (SULLIVAN) HARRINGTON. Florry died 10 Jan 1992 in Arizona. See his obituary. Florry's brother, John (Jack) was born 8 Apr 1914 in Los Angeles CA. --CABI He was a Catholic priest, and died 5 Mar 2004.

In 1920, Florance, age 3, lived with his parents at 318 Alabama St in Butte MT. The family comprised: John, 45 Ireland, immigrated 1897, naturalized 1905, brewery manager; owns home, no mortgage; Margrett, 39 Ireland; John, 5 CA; & Florance, 3 CA (both boys attending school) --13 Jan 1920, Butte, Silver Bow, MT ED205 p1A.

In 1930, the family comprised: John 56 and Margaret 51 living with their daughter, Margaret 24 MT, at 318 Alabama, in Butte. John is a manufacturer of soft drinks. No sign of Florry (age 13), no previous mention of a daughter. --2 Apr 1930, Butte, Silver Bow MT, ED16 p1A. Florry's brother Jack, 16 CA, was a boarding student at St Joseph's School for Boys in Missoula. --12 Apr 1930, Missoula MT ED6 p9A.

A John J HARRINGTON, age 78, died 8 Jan 1953 in Silver Bow County MT. A Margaret HARRINGTON, age 79, died 22 Jan 1959 in Musselshell County MT. --MT Death Index. Without viewing the actual records, it's hard to tell if these are the same as the above.
