Looking for assistance in finding a family who lived in Western New York with
the a surname that is often misspelled. It has been written as...MINEHAN,
MINNIHAN, MINNIGAN, MEENIHAN, MINIHAN, etc.
Looking for John MINEHAN and wife Hannorah (Nora) and children Anna, Joseph,
and Philip. All that is known is that John, Nora, and Anna were born in
Ireland and Joseph and Philip in New York -- Philip is said to be born in Lewiston
NY in 1858. By 1860, Nora is a widdow and living with her brother Michael
DUFFY in Greene County, Ohio. I believe Nora's husband John died in NY and that
is why she moved to Greene County Ohio.
I believe John MINEHAN (MINNIGAN) had several brothers -- Michael and Philip
lived for a time in New York but settled in Mercer County PA prior to 1870.
Perhaps another brother, Jerry, ended up in Greene County OH.
Has anyone come across any MINEHANs or MINNIGANs that might fit this
description? Can anyone check marriage and cemetery books for a John MINEHAN (with
associated surname spellings)? John would have died prior to 1860 and married
Hannorah DUFFY either in Ireland or NY around 1848 to 1855.
Thanks in advance,
St. Louis MO
