My Grandfather "Harry McCastland"

My Grandfather "Harry McCastland"

Classification: Query
Surnames: McCastland, Lungren
I would like to thank everyone that shared the photo's of our family. I was very touched to look at the photo's.
Was my Grandfather(Harry E. McCastland's) real name Henry E. McCastland? If so did the E stand for Eugene?
I just wondered because my brother's middle name is Eugene and we are trying to figure out where that middle name came from.
Would anyone have a photo of my Grandfather Harry? How did my grandfather Harry die?
Would anyone have a photo of my Great Grandfather..Harry C McCastland? I know he hung himself in the basement leaving Nellie to take care of all the children.
Again, THANK YOU for sharing photos of our family.
