Thank you for ans. my query. The names you mention are so similar to mine & being from the same co.(Kerry) in Ireland I'm sure there must be a connection. My ggrandfather John Hanrahan wrote a paper before he died which I have a copy of. In it he says his father Dennis Hanrahan had 2 brothers & 3 sisters. His sister Bridget m. Maurice Galavan & they had 4 children: John(who died in the Britisharmy), Michael, Mary & Maurice. Could this son Maruice be the Maurice you speak of with wifeCatherine?
I'm curious how you found baptismal record for your John Galvin in co., Kerry Ireland I have been unable to obtain any records at all.
I have had little to no luck with my Hanrahans & families any help you could give would be wonderful.
Thank you, Bobbie
