immigrated from Ireland about 1835. After helping construct the Erie Canal
in New York, the family worked its way across this great country building
the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad along the southern route,
living in a railroad car. You can tell the order of the children in the
family by what state they were born in as their railcar home moved West as
the railroad expanded.
Jim's grandmother was born on an
Indian reservation in Arizona, with Jim's mother being born here in Los
Angeles. Jim's great aunt Annie used to regale the family with tales of
how she met Wyatt Earp in the wild west! The picture at left was taken
just after the turn of the century in Seligman, AZ.
Could the unidentified man in the photo above BE
of Wyatt Earp??? There IS a resemblance!!
