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.

Sullivan Family Portraits

I am lucky enough to have two family portraits of the Sullivan's. The first was taken Easter Sunday 1910. Location: At the time this photo was taken the Sullivan family was living at 610 Bennington Street, East Boston, MA. Close to the Bennington Street house lived the Austin’s – Grandparents to the Sullivan children – on Saratoga Street. We believe this photo was taken on or near the back yard of this Austin’s home. The brick building seen in the background could be part of the St. Mary’s church and school property.

This undated photo appears to have been taken in the 1920’s. All of the people pictured in the earlier portrait are present in this one - so we have an opportunity to see how they looked as children and then as adults.

By this time the family have moved from Bennington Street to St. Andrew Road. Some had married and started families of their own, but all still lived close enough to gather for the photo.
