THE PARISH OF PATRICK.
Patrick has no town, two villages and a hamlet, a nominal railway, few roads, and few people to use them. For these shortcomings she makes up with her abundance of wild land overlooking the sea and Ulster. The ruined Cathedral on the islet of her saint is cartographically in the next parish, but the ruins of her mines unbeautifully remain to her, and her chief river is slowly recovering from their poison. She has a seaboard second in wild loveliness to that of Rushen towards which it ascends, and between it and her mountains a belt of farmland narrows Southward to vanish where they become the cliffs of the Big Bay. Her two ports are ports no longer, and the fishing industry she shared in at Peel is a recent addition to the list of her ruins.

We don't have a full story on Ann Faragher, but know that she endured a lot of hardships, too. Her husband marched with the Mormon Battalion to help with the war in Mexico. They marched from Council Bluffs, Iowa, to Fort Leavenworth, California. It was during this time that Ann traveled with her team and wagon and entered the Salt Lake Valley with the pioneers. There is a brief story of her life written in a book about the wives of the Mormon Battalion. We just recently found at the Family History Center the record of the ship that she sailed on from Liverpool, England to America. She arrived at Nauvoo, Illinois on 12 Apr 1843.
[Thomas (he was supposed to have married Ann Fell 6 Feb 1844). This is interesting because no wife is listed for this address but Thomas Fargher is listed as head, married, male, age 59, b. Patrick, farmer of 58 acres.
Joseph Fargher, Unmar., male, 18, b. Patrick, farmer's son
Marey Fargher, servant, Unmar., female, 19, b. Patrick, "Genrale Serv"]

North of Rushen to the river Neb, is the parish of Patrick, a wild mountainous region, including the northern slopes of Barrule and Slieauwhallin, and, to the west, the Dalby Mountain, with the Peel hills to the north. Between Mount Dalby and Barrule is Glen Rushen, a deep highland glen, called in its lower part Glenmaye. Through this glen flows the Glenmaye river, which forms the beautiful Glenmaye waterfall, about one mile from the sea. The district is barren, and only a small part of its area is capable of cultivation. The district north of Barrule is highly metalliferous, and several of the veins of lead are worked in Glen Rushen, and its offshoot Glen Dhoo. In Glen Rushen also are extensive slate quarries, which at one time promised to be very successful. The population is partly agricultural, fishing, and mining, and is sparsely distributed over the parish. Glenmaye is the principal village, it is much frequented by tourists on account of its beautiful scenery and waterfall. Dalby village is a small collection of houses, near the coast on the west side of Dalby Mountain. The population in 1851 was 2,925 ; and in 1871 it was 2,888. The present vicar of the parish is the Rev. William Hawley.
