At the time of Patrick's birth his father was working in Boston. Sponsors at Patrick's baptism were Brian Doherty and Cecilia Doherty.

Patrick inherited the Lynch family farm where he and his wife raised their children. However, in May 1911, with bills needing to be paid, he went to New York, on his own, to earn money to send back to his family. He got a job stoking furnaces and worked his way up, doing exams along the way, to become a combustion engineer after five years. He then got a job in charge of heating in the Ansonia Hotel on Amsterdam Avenue. Once World War I started, Patrick could not return home and had to wait until 1919 to finally make it back on the first passenger steamer to arrive in Derry after the war.

The plan had been to return to the States permanently with the whole family. However, for various reasons, including Patrick's involvement in local politics upon his return to Ireland, and the worry that life in New York would not suit the children, the move to New York never happened. Patrick's eldest daughter, Mamie, however, expecting the rest of the family to join her, did go to New York a few months after her father's return.
