Another question on a family that I havent formally tied in to my family. The 1901 Census shows widow Ann Faughnan living in Cattan with her daughter Maria (Mary) and her husband Michael Lennon (married Jan 1893, son of John Lennon) and their 4 children ~
- John Francis Lennon b 1896
- Michael Joe Lennon b 1899
- Rose Anne Lennon b 1900
- Eugene Lennon b 1903

A little home work showed that the Ann listed in 1901 censius was married to Francis Faughnan to whom I am wondering about.

Francis Faughnan b approx 1829 d Mar 11, 1879 married to Ann Culreavy in Gortletteragh parish on Feb 18,1860. The witnesses were Dennis & Maria Culreavy. Ann was a widow at the time of the census.

Ann & Francis had 5 girls

-Maria Faughnan baptized Jan 1861 (Sponsors listed as Denis and Maria Culreavy d Jan 1927 having family listed above with Michael Lennon

-Bridget Faughnan baptized Nov 1864 Sponsors Eugene Culreavy and Anna Faughnan

-Rose Faughnan baptized May 12, 1867 d 1953 Sponsors John Grey and Anna Faughnan. Rose Married Eugene Brennan on July 16, 1894 d 1907. Peter Brennan and Alice Gray witnessed the marriage in Gortletteragh church. Eugene’s father was John Brennan from Crealaughter Rose remarried Patrick Reilly after Eugenes passing

-Alice Faughnan baptized March 30, 1874 Sponsors were Francis Rogan & Catherine Culreavy

-Anne Faughnan baptised June 06, 1876 d Aug 11, 1953 Sponsors were John Grey & Bridget Heslin. Married Charles McManus b Aug 16, 1885 d Nov 10, 1955 They had a son Charles McManus b Jun 1918 whom was ordained May 1942
