Patrick Brannan 4 March 1839, Leinster, Longford Co. town of 
Granard, Ireland  family bible, Lincoln, Logan Co. Illinois, 

It appears the name might have been O'Brannan, in a book 
written by Robert Brannan about President Lincoln and his 
law office in Lincoln he wrote the Irish were not well 
received and the (O) on the name was dropped to make it more 
Scottish or American sounding.
