Hello - My name is Tara Jon Manning, and I'm looking for information about the ancestors of the Hylands of Brooklyn. I wonder if your Hylands are the same as mine. My great grandfather was John Hyland, once of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY. My grandmother, Agnes Hyland O'Brien Mooney tells me his father, who I think was also named John Hyland, ran a shipping and trucking company in lower Manhattan around 1900. My GGFather Hyland married Margaret Turner with whom he had 8 children, all raised in Brooklyn. He left the family in the 1940-50's and died around 1973. If anyone had further info about this family, their arrival in the US and their roots in Ireland - please post!.
