Are you related to the author, Don Scanlan? I was in Ireland in 1985, and I met Don Scanlan who was working at a lighthouse. I believe that he is my cousin, but I am not sure what the exact level is - once removed etc....I am giving you a lot of words without any confirmation - sorry. My grandmother's maiden name was Cahill.
I need to find the list that I mentioned initial reply/post. I am related to the woman on the front cover - I believe that she is my g-g-g- grandmother. I will have to find out how many "greats" are involved.
Besides Melican and Harris do you have ancestors with the surnames Moran, Brennan, Scalan, and Cahill? I cannot confirm whether or not I am related to Melican and Harris. I will let you know when I see the family tree I have.
Thanks for responding. I appreciate it.
