Hi Shannon,

This is a different Dan Devlin than the one in Canada. I'm Dan Devlin from Boston, Mass. I've been looking for my grandfather's brother Hugh who came from Clonmany, Donegal. He may have gone to Scotland from there. I really don't know. Anyway, my website is http://familytreemaker.genealogy.com/users/d/e/v/Daniel-J-Devlin/index.html?Welcome=1064131714
and has info on my grandfather James and his 10 siblings. His brother Hugh was born on AUGUST 23, 1894. I don't have a lot of info on him. What interested me was your father's name Dan. It was custom for the eldest son in a family to be named after the father's father. This means that if your father was Hugh's eldest son then he would have been named after Hugh's father who would have been named Dan. I know it's a long shot, but take a look at the info on my website and let me know if you see anything that looks familiar.

Thanks
Dan Devlin
Boston, Mass.
