Looking for Frank E Franks relatives
Posted by Con McKenna on June 18, 2019, 1:15 pm
My late mother was the full cousin of Frank E. Franks - but it is unlikely that she even knew of his existence. His father was a John Kane and his mother a Mary McKenna - both from Maghera, Co Londonderry. They were married in the Catholic Church at Glen, near Maghera. They had 3 sons while still living in Maghera and then the family moved to Newcastle-on-Tyne (Hebburn probably) where they had a further 7 children - including Frank Ernest Kane (The famous Frank E. Franks). Mary McKenna Kane died in 1929 and her death was reported in terms of the bereavement of Frank E. Franks. Her husband died a few years later.
Our family here in Northern Ireland have had no contact with our relations since the death of Mary - and for probably some time before that. I would like to make contact with any relations.
