My maiden name was Kinahan - and I find all of this quite fascinating.
My father was Michael John Kinahan, his father was Joseph. His mother was Mary Cummins. I saw a Fahey mentioned somewhere - I know there is a connection there as well.
My father's family were born and raised in Saskatchewan. There were 5 children. Helen, William, Kathleen, Michael John, and James. Only Helen and my father are still living.
Anyone interested in more information, please feel free to email me. I find this all interesting. Interesting for you "easterners" James moved to Sarnia Ontario and his 7 children are all still in the east. Only 1 son tho - so hard to track down! I look forward to more interesting info - also will try to find to find out where my grandfather was born. He dies quite young.
