We are obviously related, but I'm not sure how. I don't find you listed in my family tree. John Donahue Burns was my great grandfather. Ellen J Hallisey was his second wife. He married her older sister first. My Uncle Russ seems to think her name was Julia. She died before having any children. From my research, they had 7 children. 5 lived to adulthood. I found twins in the 1910 census. They were newborns, a boy named John E Burns and a girl named Ellen N Burns. I have no idea how long they lived.
John was born 1872/1873 in Tipperary, Ireland. He emigrated from Ireland in 1889. He died 18 Nov 1947 in San Francisco. Ellen was born between January and April of 1881 in County Cork, County Clark, Ireland. She emigrated from Ireland in 1901. She died 16 Feb 1954 in San Francisco.
I haven't been able to find any further information or sources. Does anyone know anything else?
