Looking for my ggrannys 2 brothers FRANK and JOHN br in the 1870's probably in Ohio , although census records say Pennsylvania no Church records show any births of them in Pennsylvania and their older br Wm J was br in Harrison Co Ohio a few yrs befor they were born ....their parents name were Patrick and Maria O'KEANE br Ire 1830 & 1847...Last known residence of Frank and John was the St Pauls Orphanage in Pittsburgh Pa where they and the other children Mary Ann, Margaret, and William Jettrude were placed in June of 1880 when their mother died in Rochester Pa, Beaver Co...their father died in 1884 and the records for the boys part of the orphanage were lost so I have no idea what happen to them...Their sister Mary Ann married a John Henry Joyce and Margaret married a man named Lavine and Wm J married a Laura and lived in Grapeville Pa where he worked in a glass factory....No one seems to know what happen to John and Frank...there is a family tale that they went to Chicago ....They may have spelt their name as O'Kane or O'Keene instead of O'Keane...Their sister Mary Ann Joyce nee O'KEANE was my ggrandmother....
