Surnames: Regan, Glavin, Barry
Hi. I am looking for information on the family of Edward Regan and Bridget Glavin (died 1906). They were both born in Ireland, sometime between 1844 – 1848. They travelled separately to the United States and married sometime between 1864 – 1870 in Massachusetts and settled there. They had at least 5 children;
1. John W. Regan 1869 – 1942, he was born in Dorchester, Suffolk. I think he married and moved to California.
2. Edward (Eddie) Regan 1872 – 1874.
3. Mary Aloysuis Regan 1874. In 1911 she married Patrick Barry (his parents were Patrick Barry and Johannah Hays) in Pasadena, Los Angeles, California.
4. Thomas J. Regan 1875 – 1945. I think he married and moved to California.
5. Elizabeth M. Regan 1880.
Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

This is fantastic and so helpful. I truly appreciate all the trouble you went to to check this out.

Ultimately, I am trying to see if there are present-day cousins that I could trace.

Every piece of info is of huge benefit and I so appreciate all the help you are giving.

glad to lend a hand.i see thomas j.in los angeles/pasadena area in 1920,1930 and 1940 census.
no wife so she may have passed away between 1910-20.he is still a house painter in 1920 and 1930
and resides with patrick barry and mary in 1930 census.so,indeed your correct,he did go to calif..
