It's unlikely that any Glennon relatives will just happen upon your post, unfortunately.

Have you tried "Search all Member Trees" - under "Search" at the top right of this page ?

If you find any promising results, contact the tree owner by clicking on "Find out more" beside the owner's name, and explain your interest.

Unless anyone on here has any of them in a GR tee, you are unlikely to get a response.

What research have you done?

What are you hoping to learn?

1901 and 1911 Irish censuses are FREE online

Make sure you put your own tree on here, and keep it updated, in case anyone happens to be looking for connections

Ernest -

you say, "My Greatgrandfather was John Glennon 2nd. son of Edward born about 1812."

Which of them was born "about 1812"? John or Edward? It's not clear from your sentence.

In your GR tree you have:

John Glennon 1972
John Glennon 1945
John Glennon 1929 , Stockport
John Glennon, 1920, Norfolk
John Glennon 1901, Stockport (as in the 1911 census posted by Erika )
John Glennon 1884, Castlesampson, Ireland.

Edward Glennon 1909, Stockport (as in 1939 Register posted above)
Edward 1877, Stockport

But unless I've missed it, neither name born 1812.
