Thomas Durnan

I just put up the page for Thomas. I know there's a few of his descendants that I've been in touch with. If there's something that you think should be added or corrected, let me know. I'd also like to put a photo of his wife and family up there in at all possible. I would appreciate any help anyone ...

Re: E-Mail Addresses

You sure that you want Martha17? You don't need the number. I can make it plain old Martha@durnanfamily.com if you'd like. Then again, if you want Martha17, I'll make it that - no problem. Let me know and I'll get it set up tomorrow for you. I'll also have to send login instructions to you.

My Refrigerator Pickle recipe

[FONT=Palatino Linotype]It's the start of June and I wait until the catalpa trees start blooming before I plant my cucumbers to avoid bacterial wilt. The catalpas will most likely bloom this week. With that in mind, I'm thinking ahead to the pickles that we make. The kids love them. One key is to p...

Info Request

I'm going to start putting together pages on the different children. I have some pretty good info on Thomas and Charles. I have a little on James. I have some newspaper accounts on John, but I'm really lacking info on him. I would like some info on Elizabeth after she left for Canada. I don't even h...

How fast will it go?

I grew up down around Rowley and Walker, Iowa, and as such, we were a stopping off point for those family members using the airport in Cedar Rapids. Gramps used to get summer help from his grandsons, and for some time, it was one of Uncle Chuck's boys that came up to help. If Dad didn't go down and ...

Re: A story told by Leo Durnan Sr. to his children

[FONT=Palatino Linotype]Grandpa was quite the story teller. He had a way of speaking that could really "juice" a story up. I sure miss hearing him tell stories. I hope you share more stories about Gramps. You have a wonderful writing style and it's a pleasure to read![/FONT]

Durnans in County Fermanagh

I've been looking around over on the PRONI website and found wills for Thomas and Mary Durnan. They were from around Crummer, County Fermanagh. Not sure if this is where our Durnians came from or not. I've heard County Armagh, but there's not a lot of Durnians there. County Fermanagh is where the st...

Durnan/Durnin family Veterans

[FONT=Palatino Linotype]I would like photos of our Durnan/Durnin family veterans to post of the website come Veteran's Day. They don't have to have the Durnan/Durnin surname, but should be descended from either Stephen or Charles, or be married to one of their descendants. I would like to have a ph...

Musquee de Provence Squash Seeds

Last fall, we bought a squash from the farmer's market. It was a Musquee de Provence squash. You can see what they look like if you click here . We planted about 20 seeds or so, and have some left. If anyone would like some seed, let me know and I'll gladly mail you some. This is an heirloom variety...
