Biographical data
Name: Doyle, Patrick J.  
Born: 17 Mar. 1837
Died:
 
Notes:
I am guessing that the 'Doyle' who played in the match between the New York Club and the Philadelphia Junior Club in 1892 was Patrick J. Doyle, who was active in New York in the 1870s. The American Chess Monthly of Mar. 1892 (p.2) and the International Chess Magazine of Oct. 1891 (p.295, delayed in publication!) have 'C.J. Doyle'. The Brooklyn Daily Standard-Union of 30 Jan. 1892 has 'P.H. Doyle'. A 'J.P. Doyle' is mentioned in a retrospective on James A. Leonard in the Georgia Weekly Telegraph of 23 Aug. 1867. I suspect that this is also Patrick J. Doyle, who would then have been active as early as about 1861.
