My grandmother always told me that i was named for the Geraldines because My Horgan grandfather always wanted a girl with that name. They were married in NYC and had 5 sons.Today, after my sister did some research, we learned that John Joseph Horgan,my grandfather,had only two brothers==Peter and michael:and his father's name was Timothy who was married to A Bridie?
We believe they were from Cork City.It seems that John, Michael, Peter and Timothy were popular horgan names. I have a grandson named Jeremiah. The angels must be whispering in our ears.
Thanks for your response.
