#52ancestors Post Twenty-Five: Same Name - William Joseph Quinn

William Joseph Quinn (#2) and Susan Murray Quinn with some of their grandchildren.
The sad baby on William's knee is my husband, William Joseph Quinn (#4).

I wrote in a previous post, William Joseph Quinn - Six Generations, the name William Joseph Quinn has been used for six generations, over a period of 166 years, and on three continents. The 25th writing prompt for #52ancestors is same name. In my family tree, this same name has been used more than any other. 

I have much family history to share regarding the Quinn family.  My family history webpages have been on Rootsweb Freepages since at least 2001 and the Quinn pages had several thousand views - more than any of my other families. 

Unfortunately, my web pages along with all other Rootsweb pages have been removed due to security problems. It is unknown if or when the pages will be restored. As I have time, I will add the family history pages, along with much-needed updates, to this blog. 

Today, I have added information about the family of William Quinn (#1) and Bridget Brannelly. You can see this as a tab above or by clicking here
