do you have the reference for the symposium about Martin selling Catholic material. I'd like to follow up.

Ernesto, I can't find where I mentioned that in the forum, but it is referenced in a 1996 PhD dissertation later published as a book, about Irish employees of DuPont along the Brandywine in the early 1800s. Footnote reference seems to be to an ad in the (Phila.) Catholic Herald in January 1835. Dissertation text runs: "...Patrick C. Martin, who sold Catholic prayer books, pictures, beads, and crucifixes for a Baltimore-based company." As his father was a merchant and importer, this sounds likely. 1835 would be a couple of years before Patrick married Mary Ann Timmins.
(I will email you more text and a link to the dissertation pdf.)

thanks margot
looking forward to it.

thanks to your clue I was able to track down the thesis:
Margaret M. Mulrooney, "labor at Home: the domestic world of workers at the du Pont Powder mills, 1802-1902. Ph.D thesis, college of William and Mary, 1996, p. 132
Her citation is Philadelphia Catholic Herald, 4/24/1834 and 1/8/1835.

Patrick Martin's travels often are not well documented. He had many connections with John Wilkes Booth, George P. Kane, and many of the other conspirators in Canada.
The reference noted in Margaret M. Mulrooney's dissertation was a single paragraph in a document of 445 pages. It cited The Philadelphia Catholic Herald from April 4, 1834, and January 8, 1835, describing Martin's business.
In fact, one Patrick C. Martin, whom we assume is the same Martin of the Canadian Confederacy, placed more than 20 ads in this Catholic Herald during 1834-1838. They all were offers for Catholic books and publications, beads, crucifixes, and pictures. The final advertisement, dated June 28, 1838, made no mention of closing his business, though some ads in 1836 said that he "...intends to decline selling as soon as possible."
These figures from December 18, 1834, and July 9, 1835, are examples of such ads from the Philadelphia Catholic Herald; they are taken from The Catholic News Archive where they are listed under the more general title of The Catholic Standard and Times.

Thank you very much, Leon. I did consult one newspaper database for the 1835 ad cited by Mulrooney, but the issue was missing and I didn't think to rummage through other issues of that paper. I'm familiar with the Standard and Times but did not know they had an extensive archive online, including the Herald. (Thanks for that too.) The timing of the ads is curious because according to Patrick's father, Patrick went to sea for a year or so at 16, which would mean 1833-34. Thus he almost immediately got into the devotional business after returning to Baltimore, and later moved on to something else after marrying Mary Ann Timmins in Pennsylvania in 1837. It appears he worked at his father's fruit-and-candy business at 52 N Gay St. (a couple blocks north of the present-day Harborplace) while intending to buy a share of a merchant ship, which he eventually did.

leon, great follow up
what is your evidence for Booth having "many connections"with Kane? Kane was gone by the time
booth was in canada.
