Look up Deedy in Websters Dictionary and you will see the following definition - \Deed"y\, a. Industrious; active. [R.] --Cowper. But to me Deedy is simply my last name and not a very common one at that. My Father always said "find yourself in a strange city? Open a phone book, find a Deedy and give them a call - chances are they are a relative." So, for all the Deedy's out there hello and welcome.

1880 McDonough Family Portrait

Once again Mary Kennedy Dean has contributed a gem of a picture. This time it is an 1880 family portrait of a young McDonough family. Mary reports that this picture was found in MaryJane's effects. Having seen the much larger and later McDonough family portrait - it is nice to see that when they had only one child the young couple look much more relaxed!

Pictured are Thomas McDonough (born in Sligo, Ireland 1853) and his wife Mary Morely Loftus McDonough (born York, England 1852) with their daughter Mary McDonough (born Worcester, Massachusetts 1879).

Thanks again Mary for the great contribution!
