Looking for information of the FINAN brothers of Manistee, Michigan and Wisconsin. They came to Manistee about 1847 from (possibly) Racine, WI. They were lumbermen.
Owen FINAN was married to Bridget. He died in the 1850s, and Bridget married a man called HOGAN in Manistee. One of their children, Mary ('Molly') married David MAHONEY, and they went to Wisconsin. They lived in Fond du Lac in 1900, and had many children. Bridget Finan HOGAN was living with them in 1900, and died in 1903.
My aunt used to visit "Molly" in the 1930s with her Aunt Emma Somerville Kelling. Molly was somehow related to our family. Was her mother, Bridget, born a McCORMICK? My gggrandfather, Francis McCORMICK lived with the FINANS at the time of the 1850 census - Michilimacinac.
