Photo Friday - Man in the Door

During the month of March, I will be shining the light on my Irish roots.

In 1917, my grandaunt Lillie Killeen traveled to New York City on the occasion of the birth of John Jr.

Is this man John SR?

And how about this man in 1920? Is HE John Sr?

  1. John Jr and Bob are making me crazy. I looked for John, son of John, in the 1920 census in the Bronx. Do any of these names mean anything to you?
    John J Buckley Jr
    John J Burns Jr
    John Schoefer Jr
    John Ramstack Jr
    John Mizgier Jr.
    John E Lenz Jr
    John T Flythe Jr
    John J Egan Jr
    Please say yes and put me out of my misery!

    1. HA - not really but John J Burns Jr sounds good to me.

    2. My mother would have told you just to say it is 'cause no one will know the difference. Haha!
