Date: Sun, 19 May 2002 00:02:51 -0700

Searching for ancestors/siblings & relatives of my grandparents, Timothy and Grace (Cronin) Hennessy, married in 1870, most likely in Chicago area. Also Timothy's sisters, Catherine, Honorah (Puma), Mary (who married Robert Fox...did not immigrate) and Mary's daughter, Mary Fox, who married Thomas Powers, 21 Aug 1889, Chicago. Thomas Powers died in 1896 & some time after Mary Fox married Peter Dunne (whom I have not been able to locate). Family all buried in Calvary cemetery. Any/all information welcome. Carole
