  • Notes 
    • BIRTH:
      Year of birth would be before 1858, according to age (over 21 years) in 1879 marriage record.
      Year of birth would be 1849-1850, according to age (1 year) in 1851 Census of Ireland, abstracted as part of the file accompanying his 1920 application for an Old Age Pension. The 1851 Census of Ireland was destroyed by fire in 1922. This record lists his parents as Patrick and Mary McCanny. Copy of a summary of his Old Age Pension file available on the internet (for purchase) at ireland-genealogy.com (ID No. 38522), a copy of which is in the possession of Robert M. Simon.
      Year of birth would be 1850-1851, according to age (50 years) in 1901 Census of Ireland, County Tyrone, Clunahill District Electoral Division, Drumquin Subdistrict, Coolavannagh Townland. Place of birth given as County Tyrone. Enumerated as Francis McCanney, with wife Mary McCanney and children.
      Year of birth would be 1847-1848, according to age (63 years) in 1911 Census of Ireland, County Tyrone, Clunahill District Electoral Division, Drumquin Subdistrict, Coolvanagh Townland. Place of birth given as County Tyrone. Enumerated as Francis McCanney, with wife Mary McCanney and children.
      Year of birth would be 1850, given that he applied for an Old Age Pension (minimum age 70) in 1920.
      Year of birth would be 1849-1850, according to age at his death in 1936 (86 years) given in a declaration by his son, Peter McCanney, on 5 January 1937, and recorded with his death entry in the Civil Register of Deaths for Northern Ireland.

      NAMES: The most common spelling for his surname is McCanney. In Irish Civil Registration records of his marriage and his son Patrick's birth, his name is given as Francis McCanny. To his descendants in the United States, he was known as Frank Hughmore McKenna, but this is a function of the decision of many of those descendants to change the spelling of their surname, once in America. His death record gives his name as Frank McCanney, and McCanney is also the spelling used in the parish register in Drumquin for all his children's baptisms.

      MARRIAGE:
      Francis McCanny identified as the husband of Mary Dolan in Irish Civil Marriage Record available (by purchase) on www.rootsireland.ie. Copy in possession of Robert M. Simon. Full date of marriage given as 6 June 1879, and place of marriage given as "Aghyarron RC CH, Parish of Termonamongan." This is St. Patrick's RC Church, Aghyaran, where John Dolan, her father, is buried.
      Frank Hughmore McKenna identified as the husband of Mary Dolan in oral family history related by Teresa McElholme (nee McKenna), her daughter, to Patrick Teague in 1988, and subsequently communicated personally to Robert M. Simon in September 2011.
      An image of the marriage record in the Parish Register for St. Patrick's RC Church, Aghyaran, can be found here: http://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000632975#page/16/mode/1up. Witnesses were Charles Donaghy and John McCanny.
