As far as I know this Edward Halpin is NOT mine but it broke my heart so I am posting it Kings Co NY cert 7454 Sept 22, 1869 Edward Halpin age 8 lived in the 10th Ward Bklyn 114 E Warren parents born Ireland His wound inflicted on him by his MOTHER with an AXE he is buried in Holy Cross Undertaker Harper 137 Court Street.May his sould rest in peace' Sidenote:I looked in the Brooklyn Eagle archives under the day after Eddie's death. It lists his mother as Catherine and his father only as a well known carpenter. Other children are Alice Mary & James. the woman suffered from mental problems for over 15 years.That night she beleived she saw two women run into Eddies room. Catherine claimed to be chopping wood when she saw them enter so she chased them. The imaginery women jumped out the window.Catheine claimed not to have killed her child that the women were responsible. Catherine was haggered and tired looking with a vacant stare. She was found sitting in a rocking chair when her daughter Alice brought back the police. No idea what happened to her but she was dilussional and I hope she too found peace.So sad. Again, at this time I do not beleive we are related to this Halpin branch.
