Hi Barbara

I am related to these Corcorans---Chick, Johnny---and the house was my great grandparents Frank & Barbara (Rosar)
where I believe Chick & Johnny grew up. My grandfather was Thomas Corcoran - oldest brother to Chick & John. My father was also Thomas Corcoran (if you knew these Corcorans and Aunt Vergi, then you may have known my father),This picture--is the house on the far right the Corcoran house?
I was told my great-grandfather - Frank - was known for his rose gardens---looks like to the left of the house..
Do you have any other info on these Corcorans?
I would love a copy of these pictures--do you have the originals?--If so, if I send you a moneyorder, would you be able to have copies made for me?
Are you releated to the Corcorans/Rosars?

THANKS--Mary (Corcoran) Fagan

Hi Barbara - may not be same family but....John T. Corcoran and his brother's were all born in Scranton PA. The picture looks an awful lot like John! Their mother's name was Estella Cavanaugh, also from Scranton. She married James Corcoran. Most of the boy's worked in the coal mines....they came to Washington State and settled in Bucoda, Tenino (also mined coal here) Estella or Stella had a sister named Mary I believe (have to check my records for all dates, names etc.) Mary had a daughter named Mary who was John's cousin. Stella's father was known as "Nipper" who worked on the Lacawana Railways for years. Names of John's brothers were James, Patrick, and Anthony,(nicknamed "Fin".) If this is the same family, I have information to share. Please contact me. Thank you.

Hi Barbara...
Do not believe the same Corcoran family.These Corcorans are my family- their mothers name was Barbara (Rosar) and their father was Frank Corcoran.The boys names were Thomas, James, John, Francis...girls = Mary(Mae), Alice & ?-I think Jullia. Some of the family now in other parts of PA & NJ areas & some of the family still in Scranton. Your John T. may be somehow form this line - via one of the brothers James or John above(Thomas is my grandfather & Francis had no children). What time frame is your John T. from/when born?This John Corcoran would have been born abt. 1905/1910ish, since my grandfather was born in 1901 & was the oldest.

Surnames: Corcoran, Korkran
I am Stacy Corcoran Bryan, daughter of Michael Corcoran. My father's father was Michael, and he was Mary's, Chick's, and Andy's brother-- to name a few of the kids.

I was in touch with Aunt Rose when Uncle Andy passed a few years ago, and she provided me with some pictures from the family. I'd love to network with others from this line of the Corcorans. (Andy spelled the name Korkran.)

Hello. My name is Karen McMahon Mattison. My mother's name was Rita Marie Mackin McMahon. My mother's mother ( my grandmother) was Helen Catherine Corcoran Mackin. I know that Helen (Nellie) had a brother named Johnny a sister named Alice. There were other siblings, but I don't know their names, sorry. Nellie was from Scranton PA, do not know the address. I do know that she was a piano player at a theater in Scranton PA back in the day. Her father John use to come by to tell her how well she was playing that day, or not. Nellie's husband was Harry (Harold) Mackin from Bryn Mawr Street in Scranton PA. Hello if we are related.

I'd love to send some pictures; I'll attempt to make some time to scan them over the holiday break.
