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.

Bartholomew McDonough

Among the collection of Dowd images, was this photo of Bartholomew McDonough (Father to Mary McDonough Dowd and Uncle to the McDonough children of 1 View Street). As you can see the original photo was not in the best shape. I spent a few hours today fixing the image to the best of my ability.

I wanted to highlight this work to assure anyone out there who has old pictures that are not in perfect condition - these images can be saved!

    It amazes me that I had no awareness of Bartholomew. My mother was only 7 or 8 when her father died, so I guess she had very few memories to pass on.I really am delighted with rhe effort you have put into this Jane. It means so much to so many people.I think there are many of us that would like to share the expenses you have so willingly taken on. Justin

    I'd be interested in knowing more about Bartholomew. I had assumed that he and my "Uncle Bartley" were one and the same, but now I'm not so sure. I look forward to discussing it.
