My Hanrahans arrived in NYC in 1870. James and Mary had six children: Edward, Denis, Bryan, James, Mary Ellen and Patrick. Mary died in NYC in 1876 while James lasted until 1907. They are buried in Calvary Cemetery in Queens.
Edward (my ggf)married Ellen Connery and they lived in lower Manhattan. One of the brothers went to New Jersey and supposedly had a candy store. One married a Lucy and one was a saloon owner. Not sure which was which. It's all oral history. I would love to discover someone else who is researching this Hanrahan branch.
