Trying to understand how the Lyons' clan moved to Galway, Ireland. Specifically Patrick Lyons. He immigrated to New York around 1850-1870, probably from the potato famine. He settled around the Adirondack mountains. He married Ellen O'Connor. He was Catholic and buried in St. Mary's cemetery in Oneida, NewYork.
