My grandmother, Elizabeth McCann Campbell, is cousin of Hugh McCann. She came from Scotland to Philadelphia, as an infant, in 1913 with her mother, Margaret MacDonald McCann and father, Joseph McCann. She passed away in 1992, but had told me stories of some of the family, including Cpt. Hugh McCann. Their is also a plaque in the center of City Hall that bares his name, along with other fallen officers. Karen Elizabeth Miller, Orlando, FL
