Looking for info on Patrick Power(s) He had a son named Patrick Powers b 1842. They moved to PEI about 1844. Patrick lists that he was born in Ireland. I also have a Nicholas Powers that may be another son and that they lived at the Bay of Fundy. Not much to go on. Any help would be great. Janice

Hi Janice,
Just a thought...if Patrick had a son Patrick chances are with the Irish naming pattern his son Patrick would be his third son. Chances are his first son was named after the fathers father, his second son was named after the mothers father and third son after the father.
Power is a common name in Branch, NL with the eldest coming from Ireland. My great grandfather and 2x great grandfather was named Nicholas Power. There are still Power descendants in Branch. Good history on the settling of Branch. Google it. Not sure if any settled in the Bay of Fundy area. Just giving you another possibility in researching.
