Birth

Patrick's birth date is unknown. Based on the fact that Patrick McCabe appeared on the lease in Aghnalart in 1798 and, assuming this is Old Francis' brother, he must have been born before 1779.

Residence

Since Francis said he was from Aghnillard, it is likely that Patrick McCabe was also a resident of the townland in Magheracloone Parish before he immigrated to Ops in Ontario about 1832. In leases, rental lists and Tithe Applotment List on the Shirley Estate from 1798 through 1830, Patrick McCabe, son of Owen McCabe appeared on the townland.

Shared note

PATRICK came to Ops about 1831 accrding to numerous legal documents found in the Heirs and Devicees files and land records in the Ontario archives. His family stayed behind in Magheracloone. There are two preserved letters written about 1855 attesting to the facts of his family relations in the Ops land records ; one from his brother Francis in Ops and one from his wife Sarah, who was still in Magheracloone, Monaghan.

Patrick received a land patent on Conc 3 Lot 13 west of Lindsay. There was a dispute over the title of this land, resulting in many letters in the Ops land records files. Some of the earliest Ops residents attested to facts about the case, most in support of Patrick's case but a few supporting the competing claim.

After Patrick died sometime in the 1840's, by 1855 Patrick's son Patrick (Jr.) had come to Ops from Monaghan to claim his father's land patent. From the records it is clear that old Francis McCabe of Ops was the uncle of young Patrick and the brother of Patrick Sr.
