William Ryan born 1786 in Cambria Co. is my gggggrandfather. He married Mary Platt, then Catherine Barnicle. He had a total of 13 children that I know of. He died on 8-11-1869 in Cambria co. Pa.

I didn't know he had a twin brother. How interesting!(I didn't know of any of his brothers) I also didn't know he spent time in Texas.

I photo copied a page from a book at the library from St. Michaels Parish in Loretto. It lists a Patrick & Mary ___Ryan with children up to this point. (James, Sarah, Mary Ann, James, Henry, Catherine Born between 1804-1827.)

There is also a James and Honoria Durbin Ryan married 1-21-1812 Children William, Sarah, and Thomas (1814-1816) Is this my Wm. brother?

I would be very interest in your research.
