Reaching out in search of roots

I hope you can print this in your newspaper as I am very anxious to see if you can find a connection in Ireland to my family.

They left Ireland about 1825 for McKeesport, Pennsylvania, and later came to Kansas.

This is the information that I have. John Daly, the father, was born in 1780 and his wife Nancy was born in 1788, both in Ireland.

They sailed from Belfast in 1825 on the ship Francis Henrietta. They had the following children all born in Ireland: John, born June 1, 1811, Edward born June 1, 1811, John born 1813, Catherine, born 1816, William, born 1818, Patrick born 1820 and Mary born 1824.

I have searched for years to find a connection to my roots in Ireland. I hope someone sees this and can help me.
