Glanzer/Gannon/Conner/Dempsey connection - Cleveland 1870-1880

Hi, I'm taking another stab at this illusive family. I have pieced info together from the censuses, and believe I have the correct info. Anyone that is connected to this family, please contact me.

John Gannon b. abt 1825, IRE m. Mary b. abt 1830 IRE
(1870 Census - 9th Ward, Cleveland)

Maggie b. 1861
Mary b. 1862
John b. 1864
Patrick b. 1865
Michael b. 1866
Thomas b. 1868

I believe this to be the family of Mammie Gannon Glanzer m. John Horace Glanzer Sr. The reason for this is that Mammie and John are enumerated in the 1880 Census in the 9th Ward of Cleveland (same as above), and Mammie is listed as "Margar." with the same year of birth as Maggie above. (Also note, the last name is listed as "Glenzer" instead of Glanzer. This was a common listing for various members of this Glanzer family.)

An interesting note is that in the 1880 census, there is a Bridget Conner living with them. She is listed as a "niece." In 1870, Bridget is listed with her parents Dennis and Margaret (Gannon) Conner. The parents were born in IRE and all the children except the last one were born in ENG. I believe Bridget was actually a cousin to Mammie, and Margaret Gannon Conner (b. abt 1832)to be her father, John's, sister.

Because of this known association, I believe that Patrick and Bridget Gannon listed in the 1870 Census - 8th Ward Cleveland (both b. abt 1800 IRE) to be John's parents (Mammie's grandparents).

In addition to this, I believe the following to be posb. siblings of John: Margaret Gannon b. abt 1832, Markus Gannon b abt. 1845, Sarah Gannon Dempsey b. abt 1846, and Catherine b. abt 1850. I know for a fact that Sarah and Catherine are daughters of Patrick and Bridget because Catherine was listed with them in the 1870 Census and then Catherine and Bridget are living with Sarah in the 1880 Census - 8th Ward.

If there is anyone out there that can confirm my conclusions, make corrections and/or additions, I would be esctatic to hear from you!

Thanks in advance.
