Notes

  • Patrick Langan was Maggie Langan's brother.
  • Who was Cecilia Brennan? There were Brennans in Mocorha Shrule Co Mayo, Ireland. However, no Cecilia.

The middle name, Anthony, was taken from his marriage record. It is possible it was a confirmation name.

Maggie Langan Walsh and William Walsh

The quality of this photo is very bad. I have tried to make it as readable as possible. I believe that this is Maggie Langan and William Walsh. This photo was attached to a piece of paper with four other photos connected to William Walsh.

  • The family portrait above, above.
  • The photo of William Junior in the leather suit, above.
  • The photo of Cathleen, above.
  • A photo Gerard, above.
These five photos were given to my mother, Agnes Goehle Land by Peggie Goehle Edgar.
