    Notes 
    • Supposition: Michael Joseph McKenna was the son of Margaret Moynaugh and Thomas McKenna. It is confirmed his parents names were Margaret and Thomas McKenna, but we've yet to find confirmation of their relationship or confirm via DNA testing.
      It's also possible Michael is connected via Peter McKenna's line that was in Chicago and Washington with the Regan family.
