Five Brennans among dead and missing at World Trade Center

Five Brennans are among those reported dead or missing in the terror attack on the World Trade Center in New York City on Sept. 11.

The Long Island, N.Y., newspaper Newsday has the most comprehensive list of victims posted online. You can find it online at http://cf1.newsday.infi.net/911/victimsearch.cfm

According to Newsday, there were three Brennans working in the World Trade Center who are dead or missing. Edward A. "Ted" Brennan and Frank Brennan worked at the bond firm Cantor Fitzgerald, where about 700 of 1,000 New York-based employees died. They have both been declared dead. Tom Brennan, an employee of Sandler O'Neill & Partners LP, was declared missing.

The other two, both declared missing, were among the heroic firefighters, police officers and rescue workers who rushed into the buildings to help evacuate people just before the collapses.

Michael Brennan was a Manhattan firefighter in Division 3, Battalion 9. Peter Brennan worked at Rescue 4 in Staten Island. Newsday has a lengthy story and photo of Peter Brennan at this web address http://cf1.newsday.infi.net/911/victimsearch2.cfm?id=417

Tom Brennan, the honorary clan leader of the Brennans and a New York lawyer, reports that one of his daughters worked at the World Trade Center. Through luck, she escaped the disaster.

"Beth, a former Manhattan assistant D.A. who's now with the Enforcement division of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, had an office on the 37th floor of the north tower of the world Trade Center. Thank God, she had taken Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday off (having made the arrangements only the week before). All of her office-mates made it out safely, but with some horror stories to tell," Tom writes.

All of the Brennans express their condolences and sympathies to the families who lost loved ones. We can only hope that justice is done to those responsible for this senseless, misguided and evil act.

Edward A. "Ted" Brennan III

Loyal to Friends and Family
Edward A. "Ted" Brennan III, 37, loved New York and his job at Cantor Fitzgerald, but his heart was always tied to his family home in Sea Girt, N.J., at the Jersey Shore.

He lived in Manhattan, where he was a vice president at the bond firm, but he regularly went back to visit his parents during the summer months and spent almost every weekend golfing in the area.

His family remembered him as being unfailingly loyal to his friends. He kept himself in shape and was looking forward to marrying Meghan Daly, to whom he was about to be engaged, in the spring.

"He was a man's man," said his mother, Gail Brennan. "He had a very good sense of humor, and made people laugh," she said. "He had a sharp wit, and a quick mind."

A graduate of the College of the Holy Cross, where he earned a bachelor's degree in political science, he had been at Cantor Fitzgerald since 1990.

He loved to eat at nice restaurants, and he recommended an Italian place to his father just minutes before the airplane struck the north tower of the World Trade Center where his office was located.

He was confirmed to have died in the attack.

I am a fourteen year old girl who was looking up my name online when I saw the connection to this site. My name is Meghan Daly. What got my attention was the mention of the irish heritage. My family was originally from county meath i believe. Anyway, I wish there was some way i could lift your burden ofloss, but all I can say is that my heart goes out to you, and may God bless you.
