I am researching my great grandfather's family. His name was Henry (a.k.a. Harry) Finn. He was born June 27, 1867 in Aghalee, Co. Antrim, Ireland to John Finn and Isabella (a.k.a Bella) Moore. He also had a brother Patrick.

Henry went to England as a young man in search of employment. He later emigrated to Pittsburgh, PA and became a U.S. citizen in 1896. He married Anna Cavanaugh in 1897 and had the following children: Isabella E. Finn, Elizabeth A. Finn Tully, Henry J. Finn, Catherine Agnus Finn Hayden, Margaret E. Finn, Anna T. Finn Marshall, and James P. Finn.

Any information about this family in the U.S. or Ireland would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

Hello Joyce,

I was born in Camden N.J. Apr 1966. My father (Charles R. Finn) was born in 1927-1990 in Pittsburgh PA. his father was born 1903 (Charles J. Finn) in I believe Johnstown PA. Charles J. Finn (my grandfather) migrated to Philadelphia with my grandmother Irene Schell Finn in 1938 and that is where my parents Joan McGinley Finn and Charles R. Finn met got married and had 10 children and I am the youngest. Sounds like we could be related. Do you think?
