I think there may be some connection between your Fall River Regan family and my own Fall River O'Regan family.
Although mine is the family of my grandmother, I don't know it very well. I include a partial tree that I have put together based on an interview of one of my aunts some years ago:

I do not know for a fact the first name of my great grandfather. I do know that in my family, there is also the tale of someone in the family having been involved in some way with the Lizzie Borden case.
