EdK posted the following.
My Grandfather is the James J Kerrigan referred to as the author of "In the Bright Mohawk Valley". It was a family story and we did not realize that Documentation existed.

James J Kerrigan was born in New York City in 1871. His father and mother were born in Ireland. I have death certificate. He sold sheet music and played the violin. Whole story seerms to come together.

I take it, Ed, that you are Ed Kerrigan. I'd like to learn more about your grandfather. You can contact me at
