I have been following this thread. None of the names seem to match up but like Janice said, there are not many Donlan's around. I have been on this list for about 2 years and this is about the most activity I have seen.
Do you know what county in Ireland your Donlans come from. I have a Rose Donlan born about 1844 in county Cavan. Her parents were Robert Donlan and Mary Brady. She married James Candlin in Ireland 1869 and lived in Worcester, MA until her death in 1912.
