I have marriage record for my ggg grandparents, George Whan (of Baltimore, Md) and Marie Scholastique Faube on Jun 10 1827 in Thibodeaux, LA. George's parents are listed as James Whan and Ruth West.
In The Pennsylvania Genealogical Magazine, vol. 28:2 (1973), pp. 81-85, Irish Immigrants to New Castle, Delaware (1789) are listed and one of them is James Whan.
I have found US Army enlistment on Oct 4 1819 in Newport, Ky of a George Whan of Baltimore, Md.
On familysearch.org, I found birth, Aug 9 1796, and baptism, Jul 15 1797, for George Whan, son of James Whan and Ruth ?, at St. Paul's Episcopal church in Baltimore, Md.
Anyone with info on Whan or West family of Baltimore, Md, pls contact me.
