  4. Kim McCollam Says:

    Hi,
    Catherine (from Galway County) and Peter Brogan were my great, great grandparents. Their son Michael was my great-grandfather and his daughter, Gertrude (nee. Brogan) Mackin was my grandmother. I grew up on the Brogan farms just a few miles from the Villa Nova (then) church and cemetery. I really have very little information about Catherine or Peter. If you happen to have any I would truly appreciate you contacting me. I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have about Michael Brogan’s family. For instance, there were 5 children. My grandmother outlived the rest, but passed in 1998.

    Thanks,
    Kim McCollam
