Surnames: Devine Donnelly
My Father told me that my G-g-grandparents Timothy Devine (1830ish) and Bridgette Donnelly (1837ish) came to the states as Stowaways. His older sister (now deceased) had actually found the passenger manifest that listed them as such. He said their names were listed together,from Cork Co, Ireland. I don't think they were married when they arrived and the first child i can find for them is 1862. So my best guess is they arrived sometime in the 1850s. We think they arrived in Boston, but I can't find the passenger list and my cousins don't know where my Aunt's research is. Any ideas on how to find the passenger list again?

Update: My Dad said that Timothy and Bridget did not arrive in Boston proper but in one of the neighboring counties. He said my aunt almost couldn't find the document until she checked neighboring counties.

What ports should I be checking?
