The Michael Brennan Clan
- My grandfather, Michael Brennan, was born in
Kilkenny in 1909. After working as a miner, I believe, for
several years, he emmigrated to the U.S. in the late
20's, settling in the Bronx in New York. There he met
Mary Reegan (Reagen?) of Roscommon and they were wed
in the late 1930's--1937, I think. My father, James
Brennan, Sr., was born in 1947. He was the last of three
children. He had two older sisters: Mary Katherine and
Eileen. My father married Ellen Hall, who is originally
from Texas but was raised in Wisconsin and Indiana,
and I was born two years later in 1971 in El Paso,
Texas. (I now live in San Antonio.) I understand my
grandfather came from a rather large family of around 9 or 10
siblings. I met a few of his cousins in the New York area
as a small child, but, unless I am mistaken, I don't
recall ever meeting any grand uncles or aunts. I believe
he had at least one (older) sister living in New
York already when he arrived, but she must have passed
on before I was born. If you believe you might be
related to Michael Brennan somehow, please let me know.
I've given all the information that I know right off
the top of my head, but I'll be glad to ask my Dad or
my aunts for more. Eiren go braugh, my cousins!
