Hi Listers,
In an 1882 Chiago baptismal record, John & Mary Durack are listed as Godparents to one of my MASON family.  In the 1880 Chicago IL census Mary 35 b.Ire. is a widow with sons John b.Ire., William 8 b.KY (?) and daughters Mary 14 b.KY (?), Alice 6 b.IL, Delia 5 b.IL and Catherine 3 b.IL  Son John may have married Alice Mulholand in April 1890.
I'm wondering if this Chicago family might be related to the Sydney born olympic medal swimmer, Sarah (Fanny) Durak.  Fanny was the daughter of Mary Mason and Thomas Durack of Scariff, Co. Clare, Ireland.
Anyone connected to this family?
Judie Mason
