Your grandfather has a very powerful pose, an image of a very confident man
Thanks Sanjay! That was my initial impression when I looked at this picture of him as well. It was interesting for me to see this picture the first time, as I only knew him in his old age, but the confidence and powerful presence remained with him until the end.
John, did your Phelans come from Ireland through Canada to MI? I have Phelans in my tree.
Hi Cheryl! My Phelans came from Grantstown, Ireland –> New York–>Dubuque, Iowa–>Illinois. Do you know where in Ireland your Phelans came from?
Kilkenney, Ireland. I haven’t done much research on this line or in Ireland as of yet, but I saw the name and had to ask!
