Sean, The information in your message sounds very familar. I married Kathleen Marie Pyne. Her Father's name is Thomas Pyne and her Mother is Francis Pyne (Conners),now deceased. Thomas worked at the S.F. CA airport post office until retirement. His Dad ran a grocery story in S.F. He was a Marine, and losta finger in Iwo Jima.He now lives in Los Altos, CA. (415-948-7241) He has two sons, Tom& William, and three daughters, Kathleen, (?), and Annette. I think he can help you find out more info about your great grandfather, because he and Francis visited Ireland to see relatives about 10 years ago. Send me an e-mail or call me at 408-782-0845 and I will provide more info.
