Owen, Patrick, Peter, Arthur, James, Jim, Mike, Frank....these are all possible names of the brothers of Miles Finigan who came to America during the Irish Potato Famine, possibly from County Cavan.
Miles Finigan ended up first in Cincinnati, Ohio as a florist. Later in Texas and Missouri, he was a farmer.
If your line has these names in abundance, there's a chance we are related, for there were five O'Finigan brothers who came from Ireland. I think the brothers named their kin after each other to keep the connection. I have much family history I would love to share if there is a connect. Just looking for Miles' brothers.
