Do you have a PETER SCANLON or PHELIN SCANLON link listed in your family tree.

Peter and Phelin were brothers to my grandmother ELLEN AGNES SCANLON,(ELLEN b 1885) they all lived as children in HEBBURN ON TYNE, COUNTY DURHAM ENGLAND

PETER from family information went to America.
PHELIN went to Canada, and joined the Canadian Army

I am aware that one of the brothers was married and had at least two sons (any information or links would be of great value, in my research..)Please help me find relatives of my two Uncles.
If you have any details or leads that may be of help no matter how small the link ,then all I would ask is can you post a message for me I will truly reply.

Sincere Thank You and Blessings to all who can help..Regards ..Summers

Would you happen to know what year they may have been born within 5 years. Try this site: this gives the census for Canada. I found one person peter Scanlon in BC, do you happen to know their middle names.
On you can check to see if they entered the states via Canada or by ship to the states. If you don't have it maybe someone on the site may have and would be willing to check for you. Also if you put in Scanlon on community at you could get help that way too.

Good Luck Suz

Hello Suz,

Many thanks for your post, the first site you listed I will link on later today,
The others you list I have info on file, including the research notes I made. And if memory serves me right the Peter you mention I have some basic info on file.
It seems that a lot of Scanlon Family members left Ireland, and not all due to the famine years.
For those who came to England, many went into Farming or Mining Industries, truly hard work and very long hours.
((Hugs)) and blessings for taking the time to pass on the information...cheers Summers
