Hi.. My name is Barbara and I have recently started researching my Foran genealogy. I am looking for any information or connections.
My mother was Jacqueline Alice Foran (1932-1996), daughter of John Michael Foran (1902-1946) & Marion (Kruse)(1909-1997).
John Michael Foran was the son of John Alexander Foran (b. 1872) & Alice (Bellinger)(1876-1947) and was one of 14 children. His siblings names are: Fern, Alice, Margaret, Kenneth, Mildred, Milton, Vernicia (m. Victor Etu), Dan (m. Janet), Ester, Helen, Jane, Fred, Jimmy.
John A. Foran (b. 1872) is believed to have been born in Renfrew, Ontario, moving to Saginaw or Gladwin Michigan as a young boy. John A. Foran was one of 11 children, born to William Foran (b. abt 1840) and Mary (Costello). William died a relatively young man, about 1889. William's wife Mary died in 1918.
I don't have any names of William Foran's parents or siblings.
Mary (Costello) Foran had atleast 3 brothers at the time of her death in 1918. They were: Thomas Costello of Hartford, Washington; Daniel Costello of Madawaska, Ont.; and William Costello of Renfrew, Ont.
Thanks in advance.
