PHELAN SCANLON, Said goodbye to his parents Phelan and Bridget in Hebburn on Tyne, County Durham.

To his younger brothers and sisters also left behind, this was to be the start of a new life, truly an new life adventure for him and his brother Peter, who was going to travel with Phelan.

At the tender age of 19years, PHELAN's life in CANADA moved forward yet again when on 4th August 1916, he signed for the-
'200th Battalion - Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force'
I have recently found a photo of Phelan in uniform, and hope to post it with my Journal soon.

Born in BELFAST -IRELAND on 15th April 1897. PHELAN SCANLON was my Great Uncle, as my ongoing research unfolds more of PHELAN's life I am so proud of what he achieved.

If you have any details that would help my research into the SCANLON family history, all I would ask is please do post a message.If you have any photographs of Scanlons, please consider posting on site. Maybe you also had a relation who served in the Canadian Forces at the same time as Phelan if you did please post a reply. Sincere thank you and many Blessings to all who can help.

Regards, Summer

Are you related to the Canadian Scanlon Family mentioned in this post. Maybe you have the names in your Family Tree, with a connection to the North East of England. Please do post a message if you are indeed a distant relation to Phelin Scanlon, who moved from Hebburn on Tyne to Canada with his Brother. regards Summer

Still seeking relatives in Canada who have the name 'Scanlon' in their Family Tree. I have a number of journals on site that mention the Scanlon Brothers and Sisters.

Maybe one of the new site members are related and may have details - photographs or information they can share.

Sincere thank you for any data no matter how small.......

regards and blessings
