Many thanks for your interest. However, my grand-aunt, MARGARET KENNA or McKENNA (both versions have been used), married my grandmothers brother, THOMAS JOHNSON (sometimes JOHNSTON), from Killenaule, County Tipperary. She was his girl-friend from the farm next door! He followed her to New York. They married and lived at Tilly Foster & Flushing Meadows. had a number of children. Just know that one son, THOMAS JOHNSON, had a distinguished career in the USAF during W. War 2. They lost all touch with home!!! Have no more info. THOMAS'S sister, Annie Johnson, was a nun in Mount St. Mary's, Nerwburgh-on-the-Hudson. It may now be St. Mary's College, Newburgh. Was in touch with some one there about a year ago and a sister who knew my grandaunt there was to fill me in on her life story, but she never came back. Was most disappointed.

Regards, S. O'Brien.
