My first marriage was to a Darrigan. I had two sons their names are: William Maurice Darrigan born 11/18/81.
Robert Stanley Darrigan born 1/28/85. Would like to know if they have any more relatives out there. All we know is that their Grandfather Raymond Maurice Darrigan died in the Vietnam War and he was French Canadian.

I believe the boys grandfather was Ray Darrigan born perhaps around South Carolina. His mothers name was Lilly. She was from Lark Harbour,Newfoundland,Canada. This Ray Darrigan died in the Vietnam war..I believe he was a paratrooper. By the way some of his closest relatives in Lark Harbour were Maurice,Walter and Stanley. Ray was born in the US, retained US citizenship only but spent a number of years in Newfoundland, then returned to the US to serve in the military. My mother was a Darrigan, thus the relationship. My name is Gene Childs, 42 Edgehill Drive,Truro,Nova Scotia,Canada B2N 7A5. phone902-843-5402.The best relative to contact is Stanley Childs Lark Harbour, Newfoundland , CanadaA0L 1H0 phone 709-681-2920.
