i am a "pennsylvania" finan. my father was james r. and his father was also james r. my g'mother's maiden name was haggerty. both she and my g'father were 1st generation americans. all of my family worked on the railroad and as far as i know never lived anywhere else. i have a son james p. and a son daniel. jimmy is a 1st lt. at ft. riley, kansas and dan is a 3rd year (cow) student at west point. it's strange to read all the references to "james finan" and not meaning my g'father, father, me or my son.
