My great great grandfather (second from left in picture above) was name Thomas F. Larkins. He was born in Sandusky, Ohio in 1869 to Patrick Larkins and Bridget Ryan Larkins.
Below is a picture of someone whom I believe is a first cousin to Grandpa Tom.
This gentleman is James A. Ryan, born in Sandusky in 1870 to Mr. and Mrs. James Ryan.

Yet another Ryan connection is from the guest booklet from my maternal grandmother Doris Wheeler Parker's funeral. She died very young, in 1943. Doris was the granddaughter of Thomas F. Larkins. Two members of the Ryan family called at the funeral home, Mayme and Edward Ryan. These two Ryans were the children of Patrick and Catherine Ryan. Patrick Ryan could be a sibling to Bridget and James Ryan as well!!
If anyone can shed some light on these Irish families from Sandusky, Ohio, please leave me a message! Thanks!
