  • My 3rd great grandfather was James "Cormick" Cannon, born in 1827, who married Winifred McGinness before emigrating to Pennsylvania. Given my multitude of DNA matches to people named Byrne (and O'Byrne), Cunningham, Gallagher, etc, I'm sure I'm related to any descendants of this James Cannon as well!
