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.

Gathering in Worcester

I would like to plan a gathering later this spring or summer in Worcester, MA to hopefully have a chance to meet some of the many cousins and other relatives who have contacted me after finding this blog. After much thought, Worcester seemed the best central meeting point and here is my proposed draft agenda:

Morning: Visit to graveyard to lay flowers at the many family graves

Noon: Lunch

Afternoon: Gather to show off any family photos, swap stories, or just generally get to know each other.

So there you have it, a pretty simple plan. I can already guarantee that I will be there with my parents (Tom and Sue Deedy). If no one else is interested, this will be a fairly easy day to plan! However, if you are a descendant of the McDonough’s or the Deedy’s and would like to attend please send me an email at or leave a comment below with your contact info. Once I have an idea of how many are interested I can start working on a more concrete plan.
