I'm looking for information about the descendants of William Coogan of the Niagara Falls area, and I noticed that in a posting a few years ago you mentioned talking with one of them.Do you still have the contact information?The Niagara Falls William would have been born about 1894 or earlier, and he worked for Immigration on the American side of the Canadian border.One of my aunts kept in contact with him until his death; then she lost track of his family.You're right of course--that William was not the immigrant son of Patrick and Catharine.I don't know what the connection was, just that there was some connection to my grandfather's generation.
(In your posting you wrote, "I have run into another Coogan who claims to be related to Wm. He says a Wm. Coogan, his ancestor, raised his family near Niagra Falls. I don't think this is the Wm. directly from Ireland. If you want that email address, I will give it to you.")
