Descendant Family Tree


Descendants of Major Howard Egan

Mormon Trail

We have identified over 2,500 people who are descended from Major Howard Egan, 1,600 of whom are living. We have organized these descendants into five separate“descendant-child-lines,” one for each of his five children who themselves had descendants.

You can “download” each of the descendant-child-lines by clicking on the names below:

ClickON THE NAMES BELOW to “download” each Descendant-child-line:

1. Howard Ransom Egan
2. Richard Erastus Egan
3. Ira Ernest Egan
4. Helen Jeanette Egan Irvine
5. Hyrum William Egan

To preserve the privacy of living descendants, we have identified living descendants by using initials for their first and middle name (if any), and then using the appropriate last name at birth.

Need Help Finding More Descendants

We believe there are at least another 1,000 descendants we have not yet been able to identify – and we need your help to locate them. Let us know if you are willing to assist.
