Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Brennans (Thomas' descendents)

I'd love to find descendents of Thomas Brennan and Mary Jordan who settled in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba in the late 1800s.

Thomas Brennan was born about 31 Mar 1843, mostly like in BeckwithTwp, Lanark Co. His son John listed his father's place of birth as Perth, which was the closest town, I think. His parents were Mary Ann Jordan and Patrick Brennan from Co Carlow, Ireland. The family settled in Beckwith in the 1830s, then removed to Holland Twp, Grey Co, before the 1851 census. Thomas is listed at home on the 1861 census, but not on the 1871.

By 1873 Thomas was married to Mary Jordan, who was born in Wexford, Ireland 07 Aug 1849. Their children:

James Edward Patrick, born Sep 1874, died 1952, buried in PlaP
John J, born Dec 1875, died 1961, buried in PlaP
Mary Ann Ginevra, born 17 Jan 1877, died 20 Apr 1932, buried in PlaP
Martin J, born 12 Dec 1878. I'm unsure about Martin; I may have found him in Missoula, where his cousin William Henry Brennan was, but I'm not certain it is.
Elizabeth, born 22 Jan 1881 in Dornoch, died after 1911 census
Margaret Antoinette, born 31 Mar 1883 in Dornoch, died 1978, buried in PlaP
Thomas, born 07 Jul 1885 in Dornoch, died after 1916
Isabella, born 06 Dec 1887 in Dornoch, died after 1916
Patrick Leo, born 30 Dec 1889 in Dornoch, married Armandine Elodie Dumoulin in Plap, 1934, died 1973. One daughter I know of, Julia.
Mary, born 05 Nov 1893 in Dornoch, died after 1911.

I don't know if any of the kids save Patrick Leo married.

I'd love to connect to this line. Thomas' younger brother Edward was my gg grandfather; he emigrated to the Berkeley, CA, area (as did brothers James and John and sisters Catherine and Elizabeth).
