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.

Another family photo found!

Mary Kennedy Dean has once again been busy looking in old photo albums and has contributed another great family photo. You can click on the picture to see it larger. Hard to believe (for me) but that little boy pictured is my Dad!

Here are the names provided by Mary (my edits are in italics):

1. Marie McCarthy
2. Thomas Reed Deedy
3. MaryJane Kennedy
4. Aunt Ann (Ann McDonough Fay)
5. Marion O'Leary (daughter of Mary McDonough O'Leary)
6. Peggy (Rafferty?)
7. Aunt Grace (Grace McDonough Deedy)

  1. # Anonymous Kathleen Quinn McCarthy

    Is the Peggy Rafferty you're referring to, Margaret McCarthy Rafferty, the daughter of Louise McDonough McCarthy & Michael Aloysius McCarthy? If so, she's my father, Robert H. McCarthy's sister. She would have been born in approx. 1921 I think. Her daughter Mary Rafferty Ryder on the Cape would be able to confirm it for us. Katie (Kathleen Quinn McCarthy) Dolan
