My O'Kanes appear to be from the Ballycastle area of Antrim. I believe Ballycastle is close to the Glens so I thought you might be interested in my O'Kanes. Below is all I have on the.

Name: Anne O'KANE
Birth: 1855 - Watertop, Ballycastle, Antrim, Ireland
Death: 25 Aug 1903 - Partick, Scotland(1, 2)
Cause of Death: BroncoPneumonia
She was Irish Catholic
* She has additional death information of 25 Aug 1903 in Glasgow,
Lanarkshire, Scotland. Death – 1903 646/3 643 Ann McNeill, widow of
Archibald McNeill, Cab Driver, died on 25/08/1903 at 12 noon at 20 Mansfield
Street, Partick, age 50. Parents; Alexander Kane, Farmer, deceased, and
Mary Kane, nee Lynn, deceased. Cause of death; Bronco Pneumonia. Registered
by Mary Ann McNeill, daughter.
Father: Alexander O'KANE ( -Bet 1903)
Mother: Mary LYNN ( -Bef 1903)
Spouse *Archibald McNEILL (1853 - 8 May 1900)
Marriage: 18 Jun 1874 - Ballycastle, Antrim, Ireland
1. Cornelius McNEILL (1875-1943)
2. Archibald McNEILL (1877-1939)
3. Mary Ann McNEILL (1879-Abt 1956)
4. Alexander McNEILL (1886- )

The first three children were born in the Ballycastle area. The family had moved to Glasgow by the time of the 1881 Census. I am descended from Cornelius through his son John who immgrated to Cleveland Ohio 1923.

Annie was my gg grandmother. I have the christening gown that she mad for her grandson John and I also have a photo of her that appears to have been taken about 1870.
