I'm sorry I forgot to mention that I do have their divorce degree, and I
also have my Father's Birth certificate and all it says is that the Father
Was born in Ireland nothing else to go by

The divorce has nothing to go by as far as addresses etc,

Actually it's a real treasure because I was so surprised that people got
divorces in those days(1915) and the wording they used is really quite

They had my Grand Mother's neighbor and friend as her witness that my Grand
Father didn't come home for days at a time, and that my Grand Mother kept a
real clean house and took after the "boy" real well

I will keep in touch with you all when we get back next Tuesday.

Have you tried obtaining the divorce decree and the supplementary
paperwork from the case? I got one from 1878 and it was amazing what all was
included. This was quite a few years ago though, so I'm not sure what the
procedure would be today. I actually looked thru the giant sized ledgers
that were just inside the door in the Circuit Court office to get the case
number - but I think there is a totally different procedure now - that was
in 1983!
Also, do you have your father's birth certificate (if there was one

Vivian Flood doesn't ring a bell for me. I'm originally from the south
side 31st and Canal When my parents divorced I was 9 years old and my Mother
took all six of us kids to live on the North side where I've remained for my
63 years.

My Grand Father that I've been trying to look for information on is
Thomas Michael Flood
Once married to our Grand Mother Della ( Delia) T. Fox she is from Carnmore
in Galway Ireland

He is also from Ireland but we don't know where.
His last known address was 361 W. Superior. That was before they divorced in
1915 His line of work was excavating
There is an excavator on North Kedzie with the name of Flood but when I
requested any information from him he just said he wasn't related to us.

So that's as much as I know after he and my Grand Mother divorced I know he
lived in Chicago but I don't know where

My Father is Thomas Joseph Flood Birth May 1903 died 1980
