      A Philip Harrington with Julia and perhaps Julia's mother, Julia Shea, arrived - Boston, MA 26 May 1848 - The National Archives at Washington, D.C.; Washington, D.C.; Series Title: Passenger Lists of Vessels Arriving at Boston, Massachusetts, 1820-1891; Record Group Title: Records of the U.S. Customs Service; Record Group Number: 36; Series Number: M277; NARA Roll Number: 025

      I believe that Philip Harrington and Catherine (Harrington) Carey were somehow related. Possibly they were siblings or half-siblings, or possbily Philip was Catherine's brother-in-law.
      Catherine Gallivan, daughter of Philip and Julia Harrington often was visited by Thomas Carey in the summer. Thomas boarded and employed Daniel Gallivan, son of the same Catherine (Harrington) Gallivan.
      Another possiblility is that Thomas Carey and John Gallivan were connected.
      Catherine Harrington Carey's son Michael Harrington, named a son Philip.
