|This is my story of the DORGAN Family in East County Cork, Ireland and Rhode Island.|
Since I first made this page I have constructed a large DORGAN Family Website.
The first known DORGAN immigrant to the United States was Patrick J. Dorgan in October 1896. One of Patrick's sons was WILLIAM JOHN DORGAN, my grandfather who married HELEN LOUISE McINTOSH, my grandmother.WILLIAM J. DORGAN, JR., my father, married MARY ANN GORMAN, my mother, the daughter of HANNAH (ANNA)O'BRIEN and STEPHEN GORMAN.
I have included all the known living DORGANs and all the known ancestors of my DORGAN Family back to their arrival on Ellis Island in 1896 and settlement in Rhode Island and from there back to the early 1800s in Ireland, specifically to East County Cork: See my DORGAN Website: www.billdorgan.com.
I have also included all the known ancestors of my MCINTOSH Family back to their arrival in 1801 in Nova Scotia, Canada and from there back to the early 1700s in Scotland: See my MACKENZIE and MCINTOSH Website: www.mackenziefamilytree.com
I have also included all the known ancestors of my O'BRIEN Family back to their arrival in the 1800s to Newfoundland and from there back to the late 1700s in Ireland. See my OBRIEN Website: www.obrienfamilytree.com
I have also included all the known ancestors of my GORMAN Family back to their arrival on Ellis Island in 1905 and settlement in Rhode Island and from there back to the early 1800s in and around Lancashire, England and County Meath, Ireland: See my GORMAN Website: www.gormanfamilytree.com
I will take all the praise and all the blame for this "work-still-in-progress"!
William J. Dorgan III
