Donna Kane

My father was born 1924 his name was William John Kane, he had a brother James, sisters Maggie and one other I will have to search. His father was from Ireland, came to Scotland as a Rag and Bone Man, and became a land developer with streets and roads with the Kane name on them. I know very little about my family, My parents moved to Canada and I lost all contact with relatives when my maternal grandparents passed away. My Irish Grandfather died young at the age of 52.

Donald Kane

My father Thomas A O'Kane born in 1908 came to the U.S in 1929. He dropped the O and is known as thomas Kane
