I have found precious little since my last appeal for information. I have searched the census records for Michael's parents, John and Mary, but have yet to identify them through other than secondary sources. As for Michael, perhaps a trip to Port Hood might dig up additional details. I would very much like, for instance, to identify his date of death. I have gone through some American military records in the hope of identifying his unit, but have so far come up empty. Tracing this particular family remains rather difficult. Thanks, however, for your input. It is good to know that he has not been completely forgotten.
