I'm not related.

Ellinor G. Rogan 25 appears in the 1930 census as married about one year and living as a boarder with Adda Ely in Fort Morgan, CO. Her parents were born in Canada and Iowa. Meanwhile Jack Rogan 23 is living as a boarder in Denver and was married about 1 year. It looks like they had an early separation.

The 1920 census has John B. 17 as the son of Mrs John Rogan 44 living with the rest of the family in Denver. She is listed as married.

The 1880 census shows a John Rogan 10 as the son of Michael 37 & Celia 31 living in Olyphant, Lackawanna County, PA. The same family is in the same location in 1870. The 1900 census lists Michael, born Nov 1839 in Ireland and Celia, born June 1852 in Ireland. By 1910 Cecelia is a widow.

The California Death Index lists a Mary Grace Rogan who was born May 3, 1909 in PA and died in Los Angeles Nov 12, 1980. Her mother's maiden name was Gaffney (I'm assuming Mary never married and this may or may not be the right one).

The 1930 census of Boulder lists a Grace Ledyard 46, married and born in Iowa. Douglas 21, Russel 16 and Dorothy 14 were all born in Canada. Living with them is her widowed father Petit Brockway 89 who was born in PA.

The 1921 Canada census is not available online.

The 1911 Canada census of Nipissing, Ontario lists this family:

H. R. Ledyard, born Dec 1871 in Ontario
Grace, born Nov 1883 in USA
Ellinor, born Sept 1904 in USA
Douglas, born July 1907 in Ontario

The family immigrated to Canada in 1907.

Under Ontario births is Theodore Gordon Ledyard, born Nov 25, 1911 in Nipissing. His father was Henry Robb Ledyard and his mother Beryl Grace Brockway. They were married Oct 28, 1903. They previously resided in Ridgeway, CO.

Under Ontario christenings is Henry Robb Ledyard born Nov 25, 1871 in Yorkville to Thomas D. Ledyard and Hannah Robb.

The 1900 census of Ridgeway, CO lists a Harry R. Ledyard, born Nov 1871 in Canada. The same census lists Grace B. Brockway, born Nov 1883 as the daughter of Pettit (misindexed as Petter), born Jan 1841 and Mary E, born June 1849.

Here is someone working on the same family:

Some of these records you can look at for free at and For those you cannot see for free I suggest checking with your local libraries to see if they have Ancestry or Heritage Quest.

With a bit more research you can probably find much more. I suggest getting a copy of John and Grace's marriage record. It may have data on parents which would help to confirm what I found. Death certificates and obituaries also help a great deal. For Lackawanna County check with the Genealogical Research Society of Northeast Pennsylvania in Olyphant to see if they can help you.
