I apologize for having little to go on, but I'm hoping desperately that somebody can connect. Recently I found out my great-great-Grandfather's full name was John Bunyan Haviland (or Havlin or other spelling). He was born in East Boston, Massaachusetts, U.S.A. in 1835, but both his parents were from Ireland, his father John Haviland/Havlin born around 1806, his mother Ann born around 1806. I have a feeling Ann's maiden-name was Bunyan and I'm trying to find any connection to her family. They were in the U.S. by 1850. I don't know if Ann was here with her family before her marriage, or came over with her husband. I haven't been able to find out the original name..Haviland, Havlin, or what it is, but they may have been Scotch-Irish. Please contact me if you have any information to help with this? Thank-you...Linda Haviland
