|I have family photos dating back to the 1880s of O'Connor Doyle Garvey Pangborn Hemlock, (Saginaw County), Michigan||Kevin O Brien||If anyone knows of any descendants of the family names listed above I would really appreciate the help. Some of the names are: Ellen O'CONNOR-DOYLE, Mary O'CONNOR-GARVEY, Katie PANGBORN, Jeanette O'CONNOR, etc. The families were in Hemlock, Bay City, Midland and possibly Detroit. I have family photos dating back to the 1880s and I'm desperately trying to reunite the family and these photos. I have some qualifying information that I will not be posting so the family can be determined. These photos have significant genealogical value in that they are permanent records of long past family members. Please contact me.|
