Looking for info on my great grandfather James Mullin. He was the son of Henry Mullin and Ann Diamond born about 1818. He left Ireland on the Fannie Bark and landed in Philadelphia in May 1845. He traveled with his brother Cornelius and sister Grace. In 1847 James, Cornelius and Grace settled in Dubuque, Iowa USA. The info that I have says he was Roman Catholic and came from a family of 5 children. They were all farmers.I am looking to connect to the line that stayed in Ireland.I have conflicting info that says he was from Londonderry or Claire or Cork but don't know which is the correct location. Any help would be appreciated as I have not been able to make any breakthroughs in finding info in Ireland.
