Hi Michael, its possible the John Hanrahan b.1827 you mention with father William, could be the same as my ggrandfather John, had a son who they named William, b.1876. So that the naming may follow, it could be the same person. I'd be interested in any info you have. My ggrandmother Salinger, I'm unsure if she was from Ireland or met my ggrandfather in Newfoundland, Canada. I don't have any info back that far, and no info on Sallanger or Salinger, I'm not 100% sure if I have the name even spelled correctly. I originally had Mary Ann Sallanger, but thats only going by written record of a document I located, but it could be incorrectly spelled.
