    Dylan O’Brien’s paternal grandfather: Dennis Richard O’Brien (1936-1985) New York City, the son of Michael Joseph O’Brien (1905-1976) and Ellen E. Lacken (1903-1957). Michael was the son of John Martin O’Brien (1876) Ireland and Elizabeth Pilkington (1877) Kerry, Ireland. Ellen was the daughter of Martin Lacken (1862) Mayo, Ireland and Ellen Moran (1866) Mayo, Ireland.
    Paternal grandmother: Julia Marie Broderick (1937-2020), New York, City, the daughter of Patrick Broderick (1902) Tipperary, Ireland, and Margaret Daly, (1899), Cork, Ireland. Patrick was the son of Thomas Francis Broderick (Clare, Ireland) and Elizabeth Hickey (Galway, Ireland). Margaret was the daughter of Denis Daly and Ellen Donegan, who were both from Cork, Ireland.
    As for Dylan’s maternal grandmother: she was almost certainly only half Italian, with the other half being English descent. 2nd great-grandparents Horace William Pevear and Claudine D. Chase have a long lineage of ancestors in America leading back to England.
