Surnames: McCann, Coleman
I'm looking for information on my greatgrandparents. James McCann, (1842-Aug 14, 1906) and Elizabeth Coleman, (1844-Mar 2, 1899). Both died in Coatbridge, Scotland. They were married In Lurgan, County Armagh, Ireland in July of 1963. Known McCann children were John (1864-?); William (1872-?); James (Jan 1, 1874-?); Mary (Aug 10, 1878-?); Margaret, my grandmother, (Jul 14, 1881-May 25, 1976); and Elizabeth (ca 1887-?). Oral family traditions mention a large McCann farm in Armagh. Any leads will be welcome!

Hi Carol,
If you come across any connections with your McCanns and the last name Fearon (or O'Fearon/Feron/and many more) could you let me know. I am deadended on the family of my grandfather, Francis Fearon. His parents were from County Armagh, Patrick Fearon and Ann McCann. Francis was born in Scotland in the 1870's but the family lived in Ireland. Supposedly they were visiting family in Scotland when he was born. Thanks
Irene Fearon Bailey

Have Ancestors of Mary Fearon married to a John McCann,

They relate to my family from Armagh, My great grand parents, Peter McCann and Margaret McCann
Marriage records show both were McCann's.
Also relate to Dorans, Hannaway's . Peter was a Flax grower. Some who came to USA lived in Wisconsin and Minnesota also relate to Patrick McCann married to Anna McKeown.

Surnames: McCann, McHugh
Have you found any reference to a McHugh family? My great-grandfather was Michael McHugh, who I believe was born in Wisconsin, and lived his life in Minnesota. His mother was Anna McCann, and her father was Peter McCann. Anna and Peter are both buried in Minneapolis.

It does sound like the same family. The only information I had was Michael and Anne. I have also been in contact with a Linda McCann. Anne's brother John Charles is her great-grandfather, I believe. She is the one who gave me the information about Peter and their gravesites. I do know for sure that he had a sister Katherine. I think there were other siblings, but I don't know their names. Michael married Emma Youngdahl, and they had six children that I am aware of - Harry, Clarence, Gilbert, Stella, Robert and Helen. Stella was my maternal grandmother. Michael has been a dead end for me, so any information that you have would be helpful.
