The Curran/Currin Family And Coffin Ships

Irish Clan Map

Currin Coat Of Arms

On Saint Patrick's Day, I have to thank my ancestors for taking the long and perilous journey across the Atlantic to escape the potato famines in Ireland and religious persecution in County Donegal, Ireland/Northern Ireland. In fact, one of the reasons why most of my side of the Curran/Currin family are in North Carolina is because the coffin ship they were on shipwrecked off the coast of North Carolina and a bunch of them ended up staying here.
