Sasha’s maternal grandfather was John Robert Sloan (the son of Harry Stanley Sloan and Honora Mary Flaherty). John was born in Massachusetts. Harry was the son of Canadian parents, from Nova Scotia, George H. Sloan, whose father was Irish, and whose mother was born in Canada; and Mary Ann Parr, whose father was English, and whose mother was also Canadian. Honora was the daughter of Irish emigrants, Lawrence E. Flaherty, who had roots in County Galway, and Bridgette F. DeCoursey/Coursey.
Sasha’s maternal grandmother is Frances Paula Flaherty (the daughter of John Edward Flaherty and Hannah Rose, later Anna Katherine, Lee). Sasha’s grandmother Frances was born in Massachusetts. John was the son of Irish emigrants, Coleman Flaherty, of Knoell, Oughterard, County Galway, and Anne “Annie” Naughton, of Camus, County Galway. Sasha’s great-grandmother Anna was the daughter of Irish immigrants, James Lee and Julia Foley.
