My GGGgrandfather's sister was Rosanna Donahue b. 1823 in Strongstown, PA. She married James Gunning, a RR conductor, b. 1820 in Ireland. The Donahue family were predominantly in SW PA, but the Gunnings that I have located so far, have been predominantly in Frostburg, MD. I understand that the Consolidated Coal Company were tied to both areas, so this may be a factor.
Rosanna and James had the following children:
Mary b. 1847
Thomas b. 1849
James H. b 1852
John B. b. 1856
Joseph M. b. 1857
Francis b. 1860
William b. 1862
Helen/Ellen b. 1866
John B. Gunning m. Mary F. Hughes b. Sept 1857. John B. worked for Consolidated Coal, but also manufactured Rye Whiskey on the side, he named it Gunning's Delight.
