hi Cathie, Louise Gunning Seiling was my grandmothers cousin.Her father was a Babptist minister in Boston JH Gunning.He was a widorer when he married Mary Castleberg in 1886. They were married in NY but lived in Doreschester Mass.I don't know if Mary was Louise's mother or if she was one of the 4 children he had from his first marriage.She was an opera singer ,light, and Mary Castelberg was the church choir dircetor. Seems like she could have been Mary'daughter.
My Grandmother saved a lot of clippings but they don't have dates or by lines.I have several telling of Louise Gunning's roles on the stage. Will be interested to hear from you as to other members of the Gunning Family. Dorothy
