I'm at a dead end. Need any info on Jeremiah Scanlan,(son of Morris Scanlan from Ireland) he was a merchant marine from Boston. He married Fa'ate'ia Tagaloa around the early 1800's. They resided in the village of Fale'ula, Western Samoa. Had seven children, five boys, and two girls, believe to be the ancestors of all the Scanlan's in Samoa. Any information on the names of these children will be greatly appreciated.

My father-in-laws name is Henry Scanlan. The people who raised him were Enele and Latafale Scanlan from Samoa. His biological father is Seso Ama who is Latafale's brother. Other children raised by Enele and Latafale are: David Scanlan and Mary Scanlan all from Samoa. Could they be related to you? I do know also that the Scanlan name that my husband is related to is from Ireland also.

Do you know anything else about Morris? like names of his children? The reason I ask is my Great Great Grandfather is Christopher Scanlan and it is believed his father's name was Morris Scanlan.
