Surnames: Phalen, Ryan, ,
I am researching the Phalen family. At least two siblings, James and Lawrence, born in County Waterford, Ireland, emigrated form Ireland between 1846 and 1849. Both married daughters of John "Johnny the GENT" Ryan also from Waterford. There were 15 brothers and sisters in the Ryan family (of Rathformic, County Waterford, Ireland), nine of whom came to the U.S.A. (probably in the 1840's). Their names were John, Alice, Catherine, Bridget, Mary James, Thomas, and Edward. Lawrence Phalen settled in Watkins, New York, where he was married to Nora Ryan in 1848. In 1850 he came to Licking Co., Ohio where he raised his family. Brother James married Alice Ryan, settling in Shelby Co. and later in life Allen Co., Ohio. Many of his descendents are from Lima, Ohio including my grandmother, Marie Phalen. Anyone connected to this family, I would appreciate if you would contact me.

I descend from Edward Ryan, brother to your ancestral Ryan sister.

We seem to have much of the same information, although I haven't been able to track down sister Catherine, and you're missing a couple of sisters - Johanna and Margaret. I also have not found anything to substantiate Johnny "The Gent" Ryan. The family patriarch appears to have been Edward (1799 - 1871) who was married to Catherine Phalen / Whalen (1799-1880). Several of their children are found on the Rathgormack (County Waterford) Parish Records.

I'd very much like to communicate and see if we can compare notes. You can reach me directly at: darylyh@gmail.com
