Hello "oldflan". Are we cousins??? I somehow stumbled upon your question online from the site Are you in France? I live in the USA and don't know much about Ireland or England (yet) but my 3rd Great Grandfather's info is below my brief info...oh and PS... the census info is from England. Can't wait to hear from you.
~Peter Flanigan (1825 - ) is your 3rd great grandfather
~Sarah Maria A Flanigan (1861 - ) Daughter of Peter & Nancy MCQUILLAN
~William Thomas Hamilton Flanigan Kennedy (1879-1959) Son of Sarah Maria A Flanigan
~William Thomas Flanigan Kennedy (1904-1942) Son of William Thomas Hamilton Flanigan
~John "Jack" Stewart Kennedy (1934-1997) Son of William Thomas Flanigan Kennedy
~Rhonda Marie Kennedy: You are the daughter of John "Jack" Stewart Kennedy & ALice Kathleen White
Sarah Maria Flanigan's parents were Peter and Nancy (formerly McQuillan) This is them on the 1871 census, with Sarah and other children and also Sarah McQuillan aged 4 a visitor, probably a niece,Spelling of the surname differs, but it is the same family.
