Meighan Wilkes Barre Pa, to NY City

John Meighan was born in Pa.c 1850. His parents were James Meighan 1805 and Mary McGonigal 1815 both born in Donegal, Ireland.

John married Katherine Stapleton in Pa., they had 12 children, Katherine 1882, Kelly Brigget 1869, John 1850, Julia 1878, William 1892, Margaret 1887, Helen 1894, Jennie (Jane) 1886, Edward 1885, James, George Sterling 1888, all born in or around Wilkes Barre.

John and his family moved to Ny City around 1895, living in Manhattan. John died in 1919 Katherine died in 1941 Queens, Ny. Over the years the name was changed to Meehan.

I have some info on James and his family, what I'm looking for are any of John and katherine's descendants. I have info on them also such as marriages and children. I have never found anyone directly related to them.

katherine Meighan 1882 was my Great Grandmother.
