Dennis is your uncle related to John and Mike Kehoe from Ince?

I think my Uncle Joe had a brother called John, I *think* it was John anyway. He was a very striking looking gent with white hair and eyebrows. I am pretty sure he did not live in Platt Bridge when I knew him... so he could have lived in Ince.

Yes John was Joe's brother and lived in Ince, he had 2 sons John and Mike who are from Ince. Mike is my dad. My Grandad John was striking looking with white hair and blue eyes so is his sister Jacqueline.
