Surnames: BOYLAN One of my grtgrdmothers was Margaret BOYLAN, only dau of Robert John BOYLAN, Asst Engineer of the Wabash Valley R R in 1855. She was born in USAabt 1850, per an Irish Census record. The place is hard to decipher, but we
have read it as 'Kinteroly', but possibly 'Kenteroly'. I have since learned there are towns, Kent & Eleroy, close to each other in Stephenson County.Could it be that there is⁄was a custom of joining their names for some administrative purposes? I would like to pursue the chance of her birth having been recorded in that area.
