One of the "hits' was a Brian Henebry who went to the same grammar school as I (his brother was in my grade). When I sent him an Email to find out how we might be related, he wrote back that his mother was Eliza Phelan Kilbride. I have yet to established how we are related but it was distant 4-8 cousins.)13
