Kansa is a definite possibility, but I just don't know for sure. My father and his sisters (his two brothers are dead), evidently knew almost nothing about their fathers family, and have forgotten some of what they did know. They don't know their grandmother's name. However, their father, Arthur M. Horan was a preacher in the American Baptist Convention. He was born in Omaha, Nebraska, and they lived, over the years, in Kansas, Texas, Nebraska, and, I think, Oklahoma. I have two different stories. One is that Joseph, as a boy, emigrated to the U.S. from Ireland with his two brothers, Michael and Patrick. Another story has the two brothers named Thomas and Patrick. Joseph married a non-Catholic and was disowned. Does this sound familiar?
