Shaina-- I know it is 9 years later, but I wonder if you have found any info? I am looking for a Patrick Feehan who married an Ellen E. Ward, and a James Leo was one of their kids. John Francis was James's brother and was my grandfather. I have Co. Cork as the possible origin of the Feehans, but only Northern Ire. as Ellen's possible origin. I find many Patrick Feehans and Ellen Wards, but no verifiable info earlier than an 1893 Rhode Island marriage record.
Thanks, and good luck!
