In Reply to: Finan Center in Cumberland, MD by Joanne Finan of 125

Thomas B Finan was a decendant of Patrick Finan who came to America around 1863 through Boston. Thomas B Finan Jr. who the Finan center was named for was Patrick's grandson. Thomas B Finan was attorney general for Maryland, ran for governor the year Agnew was elected, and was on Maryland's supreme court when he died rather young, early 50s, in 1972. My grandfather, Edward Finan was also a grandson of Patrick Finan.
