Sorry but I don't think we are connected. Just thought tho I would share. My grandfather was John Joseph Handrahan, born in Atlas, PA about 1873. He married Briget O'Connell in Beaver Falls, PA in l901. She had come from Limerick, Ireland about 10 years before. They settled in Pittsburgh, had 5 children, Catherine, Mary, John, Dennis and Ann. He had a brother Michael who lived in Mt. Carmel and Atlas, PA. and a brother Thomas who I believe moved to Detroit around the turn of the century. Probably no help to you but if you hear more contact me at my e-mail and if I hear more I will do the same. Thanks, Maryann

My grandfathers name was Edgar Steven Handrahan he was born in Tignish on 12-26-1897 died in Pasco County Florida on 11-13-60, his parents were Cyprian Handrahan Roseanne Ready, I do know that they also had a daughter who was killed by a streetcar although I don't know where or when. My mother ( Shirley, Edgars daughter ) passed away 11 years ago, so I am at a dead end. I do have my grandfathers military papers US citizenship papers though they are not much help. My grandfather Edgar married Golande Nicol had 2 daughters Shirley Rose Marie, I don't know that this is of any help to you but hey! it's worth a shot if we're related.

Thanks for your reply, Robin Machart of Florida

Cyprian's father was also named Cyprian, whose father was William, who moved to PEI around 1830 from Newfoundland. His father Patrick left Ireland sometime in the late 1700 for Newfoundland.
Contact me at NHandrahan@pei.sympatico.ca and I can let you know more info, including where to get a book detailing the decendants of william Handrahan.

My apologies for not having found this message board long before now. I am married to Donald W. Handrahan, grandson of William Handrahan. Donald's fathers name was Albert Handrahan, one of William's sons. William's parents were Cyprian Handrahan Sr. and Genevieve Harper. Albert came here from PEI on the river drive when he was a young man. I believe he had a brother that died during the log drive. Albert died in 1958. Donald lives in Freeman Twp. Me. I believe Donald is a relative of yours. I would love to get more information on his relatives. Albert never found any of his relatives here in the states after he came here. Hope to hear from you. Email me at lynette@tdstelme.net.
