* A brother Frank Finigan was left in Liverpool, England. * Maggie and Margaret are female family names.

* One of the five Finigan brothers was Miles(married to Margaret or "Maggie").Miles emigrated in 1852 on the ship Merlin. I am Miles O'Finigan's decendant.

Miles came first to New York in 1852, moving to Cincinnati, Ohio where he sold flowers. Children: Jim, Maria, Margaret, Owen, Julia. Later Miles Finigan moved to Texas, selling land that eventually became part of Paris, Texas. Son, Owen Finigan married Mary Elizabeth Montgomery, living in states of Arkansas and Texas (Lamar, Red River counties)

Looking for lost Finigan brothers of Miles!! Or any connection with Owen Finigan, or sons James, Arthur, Delbert Tuggle "Hat." Any connect out there?
