My mother is Mary Pat Halloran.
Her father was Simon Halloran, and her mother, Florence Fitzgerald. Simon worked for Standard Oil.
My mother grew up in Alton, IL and Wood River, IL. Married my father, Domenic Fuccillo, in 1953.
I believe some ancestors (g-g-grandparents?) Anna O'Brien and Dan Halloran or O'Halloran.
They both came over from Ireland as young adults -- 18 -
early 20's, both unmarried and settled in Pittsburgh,
PA. Later went to Whiting, Indiana when Standard Oil
built a refinery. Transferred to Alton, IL when Standard
Oil started their refinery.
Grandmother Halloran's relatives -- she had 5 sisters -
(2) that lived in this area with their families. There's also a May Halloran from Chicago.
Trying to find more information about this part of my family.
