This is so cool! I am a Finnegan descendant whose ancestors were from County Monaghan, however, settled also in upstate New York, Livingston County, not far from Seneca County where Ovid is. When my grandmother married, she found her way to Rochester, NY, where Joe Biden's great grandfather also lived! I would love to do more research to see if there are any connections! My Finnegan family bible is almost identical the the one President Bible used to put his hand on to take the oath of office! What a proud day for Finnegans!
