I have traced my GGGrandfather Dr.Peter Donlellan to Dunmore,Galway Ireland but he was born at Milltown in 1809 and died in 1883. I believe he had three children, Thomas Valentine Donlan Born 1844. This is were the spelling of the name changed to DONLAN. Thomas had seven children.He (Peter)also had two sons John and Patrick. They all moved to Chicago,Ill Thomas had several sons one being Frank Bernard Donlan my Grandfather. He only had one son also and that was my Father Francis Bernard Donlan, born in Chicago in 1915. My father had ten children me being number four Dennis born 1944.
