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 Grandchildren

At the Gathering last Sunday a number of people who brought old photo albums had a common question - "Do you know who these people are in this picture?" If you can help identify people in group shots (as always, click on images to view larger), please leave a comment on the post or send me an email. Here is a photo where we are trying to identify everyone. This photo was submitted by Mary Kennedy Dean and it was likely taken in the yard at 1 View Street in Worcester. Here is who has been identified so far by Mary and Paul Drew-Bear:

1. Marion O'Leary
2. Peggy McCarthy Rafferty
3. Marie McDonough
4. Evelyn McDonough
5. Tom Kennedy

    I am only giving you a guess. Marion O'Leary looks to be about 10 years old and she was born in 1910. #2 could be Peggy McCarthy Rafferty, #6 could be Mary Jane Kennedy Gaitings. I was born in 1932 so I can't think of who else was around there in about 1920. Possibly Bill and Jim Fay. Justin  

  2. # Anonymous Jane Deedy

    I have added the names Uncle Justin indicated to the post. Since he is unsure, I have left the names in italics. If anyone else can confirm or suggest alternates please let me know!

    My father appears to be about (give or take) six years old in the picture (he was born in 1912); my aunt MaryJane Gaitings was born in 1917, so #6 cannot be MaryJane.

    Quite a mystery and another reminder to label all our pictures!
