Brennan Family History

 




James Brennan Arrived in Zanesville from Ireland around 1850.

The best evidence I have indicates my Brennans may have been from Kilkenny

 


James Brennan was born in Ireland circa 1832. I believe his parents names were Brigid and Patrick. I know of three siblings and there could have been more. I am not sure if the parents came to America but I don't believe they did since all the children didn't come over at the same time.

James Brennan served in both the Union Army and Union Navy during the Civil War.

He belonged to a veterans group named Herrick Blue. Herrick Blue was the name of a Zanesville area resident who was killed in the Civil War.
A story about the large number of men from Putnam area of Zanesville, appeared in the Zanesville Signal , Feb. 1, 1945. A quote from the story,
Putnam in the Old Days: "James Brennan, a dead ringer for Santa Claus and just as jolly, a true Irishman and a railroad man."
