The California death records have an entry for the death of an Andrew Joseph Meehan on April 22, 1957, in San Diego. Accoriding to the information for that entry he was born on October 8, 1876, in Pennsylvania, and his motherís maiden name was Burdish.

Based on my family research, I believe this is the same Andrew Meehan who was born on October 8, 1876, in, what is now, Jermyn, Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, the fourth child of Charles Meehan and Bridget Burdish.

Charles Meehan, the father of Andrew, was a younger brother of my great grandfather Daniel. The entire family migrated from County Sligo, Ireland, to Jermyn, Pennsylvania, at different times between 1863 and 1870. The entire family was all living in Jermyn (then Gibsonburg, Luzerne County) by the timeof the 1870 Census.

I would like to be contacted by descendants of Andrew J. Meehan to discuss the possible family relationship and history.
