My mother was Catherine McConnon, born in Austin, MN in 1903. Her father was George F. McConnon, born in Minnesota on December 11, 1870.Married to Katherine Kramer. The father of George McConnon was John McConnon, born in Pennsylvania in abt. 1840. John was married to Mary Harrley (or Harley), born in Pennsylvania abt. 1841. According to the 1880 U.S. Census John McConnon and family lived in Winona, Minnesota. Also living in Winona was James McConnon, born in NY abt. 1836 with wife Allen (or Ellen) born in PA in abt. 1838. In 1880 the census lists eight children and a Grandmother, Margatette McConnon, born in Ireland in abt. 1805.
I am looking for information on John McConnon, whose parents are listed as born in Ireland.
