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.

McDonough's in the 1932 Worcester Directory

I have been searching for other McDonough families in Worcester to see if Thomas McDonough might have had some siblings immigrate with him (who I could then track to see if I can trace them back to Ireland - I am hoping for a more unique first name). In the 1932 Worcester Directory, I see 9 McDonough's listed. Unfortunately the majority are women (it is easier to trace men) and the men's names are very common.

I will have to see if I can find some earlier versions of the directories. Thomas McDonough immigrated in 1873 and before 1900 was naturalized. However, I was not able to find his naturalization paperwork at the National Archive. If I can find that paperwork it would list his village or city in Ireland.
