The main attraction for the Irish at that time was work in the mills,
particularly woolen mills. There were a great number of mills along Nine
Mile Creek. The book, Nine Mile Country, by Kathryn C. Heffernan gives a
very good history of the area. I am quite familiar with the history of the
town and with some of the names for which you are searching. Give me more
details and/or specific information and I would be glad to help you in your
