Somewhere, I have a note written down "Salmon in Pittsburgh" that I made while talking to a distant cousin, but I can't remember what it means. Perhaps it refers to your father's cousin.
My grandmother, Bridget McCann, was the youngest of her family. She married Tom McPadden of Drumkeeran, cty Leitrim. She had a brother John and a brother Michael, sisters Honora, Mary (married name Whelan), Ellen (married Michael Nestor, family still runs a hairdresser's shop in Swinford), Annie (Linton), and Kate (Brady).
Her parents were John McCann and Ann Cassidy, who married in 1887. John's parents were John and Mary McManus, I think. John had a brother William.
