I found my maternal ggrandparents in the 1920 Federal Census for Washington, D. C. It provides additional info on Mary E. HURLEY:

This info solves the question I had on when Mary immigrated. I believe the Port of Entry is New York. Family Lore has it that she was a laundress at a large Hotel. John and Mary may have married in NY, but I haven't found the record. Their first child, Jane Cecile Donegan, was born in NY in Oct. 1885. Per her baptismal certificate, she was baptized at St. Mary's of the Assumption Catholic Churh in Oct. 1885. Her sponsors were "Maggie HURLEY and P. Hayes." Perhaps this Maggie is a sister (or sister-in-law?) Always more questions.
