I have a photo labeled "Dr. Boylan, cousin" It was taken in Green Bay, Brown County, WI.

The original owner of this photo (my great-grandmother)had an aunt named Sarah O'Mara (1840- 1921) who married Patrick Boylen (1829 - 1905). They lived in Holland (Hollandtown), Brown Coutny, WI http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/21591943/person/1169080047

I am assuming that this photo is of one of Patrick and Sarah Boylen's sons or grandsons. Can anyone identify who this doctor was.

There is also a matching photo labeled "Ellen Boylen" who could be his wife.

There is a Dr. James Henry Boylan buried here in Brown County. Patrick and Sarah had a daughter named Ellen, who apparently never married, she was still single in 1920, living with her Mom. This appears to be her, in the same cemetery as Dr. Boylan.

Thank you for finding this for me. Without the grave marker, I wouldn't have known for sure that James was a doctor.

Now I have discovered Dr. Boylan was living in Eddyville, NE, employed as district surgeon for the UP Railroad. He had a number of relatives living in the Eddyville area, including the owner of the photo I mentioned. http://books.google.com/books?id=LqwhAQAAMAAJ&lpg=PA1584...

He was a druggist there also: http://books.google.com/books?id=EKTtAAAAMAAJ&lpg=PA110&...

A photo of his drug store is here: http://contentdm.unl.edu/cdm/singleitem/collection/nebraskas...

The book about doctors says he died following a operation, but this site says Typhoid fever: http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~nesgs/Ancestree/vol03/v03n...
