Mary Scannal/Scannel/Scanlon was born in Ireland abt 1834. She married a John Buckley on May 18 1852 in Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan County, Wales (Marriage Cert. in hand). Mary's father is listed as Edward Scannal (deceased). John Buckley was born abt 1831 in Ireland. John's father is Michael Buckley. They had Buckley children named Johanna, Edward, Margaret, John (Eng), Catherine (Eng), Cornelius Michael (Pittsburgh, PA) & Jeremiah Edward (Pittsburgh, PA). I believe that Mary and the younger traveled to US in 1872 (Liverpool to NYC on Ship named Paris). John & older children traveled separate and may have preceded them. John & Edward were not present with others on Wales 1871 census. Edward may have died early. All others can be accounted for on US 1880 Census in Allegheny County, PA. Family lore passes them through upstate NY but I have no proof but they definitely left after 1870 and before 1880. I am looking for a parental connection and a birth village in Ireland. Anyone who could shed a ray of light would be very greatly appreciated.
