My Great Grandfather was Thomas Wrynn and his older brother was Simon Wrynn. Simon owned a Tavern on 5th ave/liquior business and they where both affliated to St. John's (College) University. Thomas F. Wrynn became an Engineer for the State of New York and did most of the survey work on the roads in Long Island. Thomas married Mary (May)Mcguire/Macguire in Brooklyn Kings County they had 5 sons Raymond (1903), Vincent (1904), Thomas (1910), Joseph (1918) and George (1920), after their mother died (about 1925-26) Thomas remarried for a short time as he to died after which the 3 youngest boys went to St. Joseph's Orphanage. Simon also married wife's might have been Katehe had at least one son Simon he was born a year or two before Raymond. Simon (JR) was a published (The Dial Literary Magazine) writer of sorts his pen name was Anthony Wrynn he also used another name that we are still trying to find out. The newspaper articles that are in the Brooklyn Eagle I believe are that of Simon & Thomas Wrynn. However, I also believe that all we Wrynn's are from the same family line from 1852. Both Simon & Thomas are said to have entered through Boston. There still are Wrynn's from the orginial (branch) family in Long Island. Both Simon and Thomas lived inmainly Brooklyn & later Thomas in Richmond Hill (Queens). Simon died before Thomas but I don't really have any dates.
