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.

Agnes McDonough Thompson

My Father and I just returned from a lovely afternoon with Tom and Dianne Dowd. During our visit they shared with us their amazing collection of photographs, newspaper articles and other family history mementos.

I brought along my scanner and laptop and set-up "shop" in their dinning room and captured as much as I could. I can't thank Dianne and Tom enough for their generosity in sharing the collection and in their good humor and patience during the hours that we imposed on their hospitality!

Here is my first post regarding the material collected today. I have tagged this with both the McDonough tag and a new Dowd_Collection tag to help me stay organized.

This was one of the first images Dianne handed me. On the back is marked Agnes McDonough Thompson, who was the 8th of the 10 children of Thomas & Mary McDonough and born June 7, 1893. Here she is seen clutching her jump rope and striking a very cute pose. She appears to be about 3 years old. Finding this photo among the Dowd collection of photos provides a clear link that yes - we are definitely connected and belong to the same McDonough family tree.
