This is Catherine O'Neill Kelley, of County Galway, Ireland. She was the mother of Catherine Ellen Kelley, of Kenosha, Wisconsin, who married Andrew Edward Johnston. The Johnstons settled in Omaha, Nebraska and one of their sons established the John E. Johnston funeral home in that city. One of their daughters, Zita Mary Johnston married my grandfather, Charles Louis McGranaghan.

C Coleman-Chapman I am a McGranaghan and have done extensive research on our family (note the slight difference in spelling. At http://www.cefha.org/usa/ca/sf/sfcall/6998/6998-437.html there is an Alice Malloy who married a Hugh McGranaghan (also the name of my ancestor but this one is not my ancestor). I will pursue this more. Thanks for posting the pic!

C Coleman-Chapman You are probably correct. He is my great grandfather also. There was a rumor within the family that he married a third time but there is no record of it to prove this.
