Are you related to the Doyle's or the Higgins? The Brennans have a
long history with both families and it's not a good history. If you'd like
to hear the story just say so. The Irish remember things that happened
many, many years ago.
I talked to my mother and she said that Winnie & Tom Higgins had at
least three children: Luke, Phil and Nellie. They all came to Chicago.
Luke and Phil never married, and Nellie married a man named Tony Sweeney.
They all lived on the south side somewhere, but I don't know the parish.
Anne Groark married a James Brennan, my mother's uncle, and they had at
least two children, Bridget and Mary Brennan. I have no more information
If you have any more questions just write and I'll ask my mother if she
knows the answers. She's sharp for 92.
