I have an original postcard photograph of “James and Mollie Connaghan”, which I’d like to get back to descendants or family members. Photo was taken in Decatur (Macon Co.) IL and he looks to be about 30, while she looks to be about 20-21.The photo could be their wedding photo, although she is not in a wedding dress.
I found James Connaghan in the 1900 (and 1910) census for Niantic (Macon Co.) IL, he was age 49, born Aug 1850 in Ireland.He and wife, Mary, had married in 1881, and she was 40, born May 1860 in NY.Living with them in 1900 was her father Patrick Ryan, and James & Mary’s seven children. By 1920, Mary was a widow, still living Macon Co., IL.
