I'm researching Cornelius Scanlon of County Waterford, possibly from the Ballyduff or Lismore areas. He lived for about seven years in Quincy, Houghton, Michigan as a miner. Around 1877 he migrated to Lawrence County, Missouri with probably John Fox and his son Thomas Fox who married Bridget Lynch. Prior to Michigan, Cornelius Scanlon and wife Margaret spent some time in Boston, MA. Any connection?
