|Thank you for visiting my humble,confusing and fascinating first Homepage.We all have the desire to learn more about our ancestors. My name is Liz. My parents Helen Eugenie(Janey)Regan and Charles Edward McKillip Jr.were born in 1914 and 1915 respectivly. I am the youngest of three children. My mother was 43 years old when I was born. My parents married on May 27,1950.Among my earliest memories is of asking my mother and father endless questions about their own youth and thier family history. I thought I had asked every question possible, I wrote everything in a journal,I have every picture from my father's vast alblums.My father died 11-5-91,my mother died 4-9-94. I still have questions that will not be answered.This we all have in common.The surnames in my family are Regan,Corless,Toohey,and Rigney all from ST.Joseph,Missouri,but Irish or Irish/English immagrants. McKillip(of Ardmoy Ireland)immigrated to Alder Brook New York,Ryan(from Chateagay,New York)both moved to Chicago Illinois about 1890. Goff(Ireland),Allen(Ireland),Fox,and Colford(Alice)of County Wexford,Ireland.I am very interested in my great grandparents, Michael and Bridget Regan and their 13 children many of whom worked for the Burlington-Northern Railroad. Most of the Regan children were male. My mother spoke of Michael,Patrick,Dominic,Anthony....most of the young men returned to Durham,England the place they had settled in after leaving Ireland to find work. My own grandfather Joseph Godrig Regan remained in St. Joseph,MO with his mother. He worked for Burlington-Northern as a laboror,eventualy being promoted to conductor. He married my grandmother Kate Corless in October,1912.This "Home Page" is obviously put together by an "amateur", I do hope to learn the ropes.Any information anyone can share would be a thrill. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org(my son made the address before any of us could get close to the computer) I will happily share any information with you.Sincerely,Liz Dony|
