Hilary’s Early Life!

July 3, 2013

Here are some photographs of Hilary McKanna, my Aunt Vivian’s husband, taken in his younger years, probably taken in Alaska:

In this following photograph we see Hilary in a happy mood.  The writing on the back had C. Penglase and I wonder if this is the C. Penglase that married Helena Mary McDonald, daughter of great Uncle Angus McDonald who would know be Hilary’s father-in-law Ronald’s brother?

This photo is one of my favorites of Hilary.  My memories of him were he was a gentle and kind man.

My curiosity and the inspiration of the blog:  A Convergence of Families has pushed me to try a few internet searches and I found some additional sites that will further the McKanna family history:
