Hi Carolyn, no I have not heard of four boys taken in by a Glackin family. Sounds a bit of a variation on the three German brothers theme. it does seem that the Glackins are indeed Irish and originated around the Dungloe Area of Donegal. it was interesting to hear the story about the chickens, it this sort of story that turns out to be true rather than beingdescended from German brothers. However, us Marameelan- Maghery Glackins are fair headed and there is a lot of males in the Glackins calledCharles and Henry as I have already reiterated.
