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.

Thomas McDonough had siblings!

Thomas McDonough's obituary has finally been found and it contains some very exciting information!
Worcester Evening Gazette
Monday December 8, 1913


Thomas McDonough, aged 54, died last night in his home, 1 View street of heart disease. He was a member of the Holy Name society of the Church of the Ascension, and was formerly a member of the St. Vincent de Paul society of Sacred Heart church.

He leaves his wife, Mary (Loftus) McDonough; nine daughters, Mary E., wife of M. T. O'Leary; Katherine J., wife of Maurice J. Kennedy; Margaret F., wife of John J. Barry, Worcester; Sadie W., wife of Albert J. Ahern, East Windsor Hill, Ct; Anna G., Louise M., Agnes V., Eva B. and Grace R. McDonough, and a son, Patrick T. McDonough; also two sisters, Mrs. Michael Brennan, Worcester, and Mrs Katherine Murphy in Ireland, and two brothers, Martin H. and Bartholomew McDonough, Worcester.

The funeral will be Wednesday morning, with a solemn high mass of requiem in the Church of the Ascension at 9 o'clock. Burial will be in St. John's cemetery.
Now I have some names to try and find - Mrs. Michael Brennan, Martin H. McDonough, and Bartholomew McDonough all of Worcester. Mrs. Katherine Murphy of Ireland will be harder to find, since I still don't know where in Ireland the McDonough's originated. Hopefully, Martin or Bartholomew will be easy to find and track.
