I'm looking for any information someone might have regarding Barney DeVine who was a circus performer in Ireland and came to the US around 1834.
There is a Barney DeVine who arrived in New York aboard the Howard in 1834. The passenger list, on FamilySearch, states his age to be 21 and place of birth as Ireland.
His occupation, slightly obscured by what appears to be an ink blot, is given as "labourer".
Just to make life interesting, there is also a B DeVine, aged 22 and born in Ireland, who arrived in New York on board the Eagle in 1934. His occupation was also given as "labourer".
