    I need to know if it’s possible that John HENAHAN age 40 listed as a victim of the Johnstown Flood is actually Peter HANIHAN, age 30. Can anyone tell me if there is an original document listing the victims or some other way to determine if a mistake was made? Are there newspaper accounts listing who was missing and on which street they lived?
    Peter Hanihan was born about 1859 in Leechburg, Allegheny County, the son of Matthew Hanihan and Catherine Timmins Hanihan, He is listed in the 1887 Johnstown, Pennsylvania, City Directory as Peter HANNAHAN, a laborer who lived at 142 Brush Street. He would have been about 28 years old, then.
    Also listed as victims missing and never recovered are Mrs. Mary Henahan age 24, Mary Henahan age 7, Catherine Henahan age 4, and Frances Henahan age 1.
    A family story told to me by a cousin is that Peter Hanihan, my great great uncle, volunteered to help recover bodies after the flood and that he died of disease soon afterward. But, to date, I have not found a death or burial record for him, nor, unfortunately, a marriage record.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
