I have been tracing my Meehan family, which began in Jermyn (formerly Gibsonburg), )PA in the 1860ís. I have recently received information which brings me to Pearisburg, Giles County, VA, to see if I can make contact with any descendants of Gerard Meehan.


Gerard J. Meehan, son of Daniel J. Meehan and Margaret Morrow, was born about 1917 in Pennsylvania, most likely in either Jermyn or DuBois. His siblings were Charles Morrow Meehan (1909-1955), Rosanne Meehan (1918-1936), and Daniel J. Meehan (1919-??). According to family history, Gerard was raised by a Frank Fisher of DuBois. He is known to have lived for a time in Syracuse, NY. His last known residence was in Pearisburg, VA, where he is believed to have passed away, sometime during or after 1967. According to one of Gerardís nephews, Gerardís wife might have been named Sally, and he was survived by two daughters

Gerardís father Daniel is the first cousin of my grandfather Patrick Meehan from Jermyn, PA. If there are any descendants of Gerard J. Meehan interested in discussing family history, I would like to hear from them.
