In speaking with my aunt Barbara about the Glackins, she remembers singing a song at family reunions that started off this way.... "From Ireland the first John came...". Does anyone remember this song and possibly have all the lyrics?
Also, curious, there is a family reunion in Pylesville on Father's Day. My aunt remembers going to family reunions in the York area.Are these from the same branch?It seems to me that the Pylesville Glackins stem from Charles Glackin. (Side note-I did fill in more info on the Charles Glackin side off of the Latter Day Saints web site).
Another note of interest, Aunt Barbara has a hand written then photcopied pamplet that shows info on the Patrick Glackin branch.I was looking on the web for J. Paul Walker, the original author, and found a copy of the original book that shows all? of children of John & Ann McCue Glackin, in a used/rare bookstore in Lancaster.I bought it and had it shipped to Barbara who was very pleased! Does anyone know where to purchase the revised edition?I tried to find the publisher with no luck?Any info would be great.
