Sentimental Sunday - Glynn Cousins

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

My grandmother Julia Walsh Slade and her half-sisters were close to their Glynn cousins, both geographically and emotionally. Their mother Mary Theresa Sheehan was first married to John Joseph Killeen whose sister Bridget Killeen married John Joseph Glynn in 1890. They were both born in County Limerick, Ireland but apparently met in New York City.

The Glynns operated a grocery and lived not far from Mary Theresa and family in Portsmouth, Virginia.

This is not likely a family grouping as the number of people
and supposed ages do not match the family tree.
