I've joined here and done some searching myself. George H. Ranagan, husband of our great grandmother Bessie (Brigit) was born in NYC in Aug. 1864. His father was Peter Ranagan who (presumably lived in NYC). Bessie (Bridget)'s maiden name was Minihan and came from Boston. Bessie's children included our grandmother Grace, as well as Edward (Uncle Ned), Charles, and George Jr. I remember when both Ned and (great) grandma Ranagan lived with Grace and Kenneth Nicholls in Medford in the 1950's.
