Re: Drennan, Euretta Jane Holmes

Classification: Query
John Drennan was born in Ireland, in 1834. It is unclear to us when he emigrated to Canada. He married Prospina Sheldon and had several children, including James A. Drennan. James married Euretta Jane Holmes.At some point around 1940, James Drennan joined the gold rush leaving his children, Harry and Grace in Michigan with his parents. It is possibly family lore that Euretta died during or sometime after Grace was born. We have been unable to locate documentation supporting her death, ANYWHERE. it is speculated that she was overwhelmed having been married young and all but abandoned by her husband and left the family. Again this is thus far speculation. We are attempting to locate any documentation supporting either theory. We are aware that Harry met his father John on a train and it is believed not to have gone well.
