Birth

The date of Francis' birthday is questionable. The only possible entry in the Magheracloone Parish records gives his baptism date as Jan 25, 1851. But his age on the immigrant ship records, marriage records, census records all point to 1853-54. However, his death record in Eddy ND says he was born in 1847. It is possible that, there were two sons named Francis - the first one having died in infancy. It was common to repeat the choice of a child's name, especially if it was a namesake.

From the Magheracloone Parish Records: Jan 25, 1851. Francis McCabe of Corlea, son of Francis McCabe and Margaret Martin. Sponsors were James Ward and Mary Martin.

Emigration

Francis McCabe's Application for Citizenship states he emigrated through the Port of New York in 1861 and was born in 1854.

Francis and his parents lived in Ontario from 1861 until 1883.

Shared note

Sis' papers: Frank and his wife came with his brother Michael and family. Michael gave Frank his land near New Rockford. Frank "Red" had 2 sons, one died while a young lad.

ND Naturalization records list a Francis Jr., from Ireland, declaring on 8/18/1883 in GFC. Vol D6, pg106. And Francis, possibly the same person, from Ireland, was designated a citizen on 10/25/1894 in GFC. Vol F24, pg625.

Found obits : Oct 26, 1923 in "New Rockford Transcript" and Oct 25. 1923 in "Farmers Provost" of New Rockford.

Died as a result of a fall from hayloft. Info in obit is (probably) in error - had the wrong birth year and wrong year of coming to North Dakota.
