Ella Theresa Murphy Brennan

Linda McGinnis here. I got a call from a cousin of my husband's yesterday and she gave me some family history information and during our talk she mentioned a funeral card for and Ella T Brennan, Sep 4 1886 to June 21 1947. Her mother had saved this card. Her parents before 1949 lived in St Marys, Kansas. So, they may have known Ella from living near her. Her family was Matthew and Marie McCormick Browne. (those were her parents).
We are related to the Brennan's from Broadford and Ashford, County Limerick, Ireland. Those in particular that are children and descendants of Bartholomew and Johanna O'Shea Brennan. Those children would be; John (stayed in Ireland), Matthew, Bartholomew, Margaret (Sr Mary Carmel), Thomas, Patrick, Mary (Jerry McCarthy) and David (martyr in S Finn 1920). We are also related to the Murphy's from Ashford, County Limerick, Ireland, as they relate to the daughter of Margaret O'Shea and Peter Kelly. The daughter was Johanna Kelly who married Jeremiah Murphy. Their children were; Margaret (Sr Rita), Mary (Sr Kevin), James, Ita, Daniel, Jerry, Matthew, Bridget, Nellie, Nora, Sean. The older Murphy's never came to the US, and I am not sure if any of their children did or not.
What I was wondering since you mention County Limerick, Ireland, was do any of the Brennan or Murphy names ring a bell?
Thank you for your time and for your Find A Grave information. I shall pass that along to Kathleen Browne.

RE: Mabel Masterson
Aunt Mabel was a gem for sure. She is my father-in-laws Aunt. In the 1980's I was not working and I would call her out of the blue and ask would she want to come stay for a week and she would say of course. I would drive to Geneseo and get her and we always had a good time. We did this for several years with her. The movie Trip to Bountiful reminds me of her story. We drove her to her farm home once and it was all burned down just a brick fire place standing. She also looks like the actress in the movie. I added a photo to the Find A Grave memorial for her. I have lost contact with her daughter Jerri and I wish I could find her.

Mildred Cora Hadley
The wedding picture you have for Mildred C Hadley is not Mildred but her mother Ida Hornecker Hadley, wife of Frank. The picture you have of the young Mildred is correct ~ isn't she cute; but the older picture is not Mildred. Mildred was my husband's aunt.

Richard Blomgren
Hi, I'm helping a friend at work with some genealogy and have just got help with a photo request for Richard Blomgren at Graceland Cemetery.
I see that this memorial is maintained by you and we wonder if this is a relative of yours?
My friend is related to Effie Charlottes' husband Charles E. Dahlen.
She wonders if you might know anything about their daughter Evenlyn born February, 12 1898 in Chicago?

We are hopeful to hear from you,
Tina in Sweden

Hi Aileen,

I transferred this memorial to you. I save all my F.A.G emails, I double checked and for whatever reason I never received a request from you for this memorial. That does happen from time to time.
