Mary Mullin Kilcoyne was my gggrandmother, (A copy of her 1932 obit from the Lincoln newspaper is below and contains quite a bit of information.). Mary Markey was my great grandmother, and Mary (Teresa) Markey/Craig was my grandmother, and Lola June Craig/morrow is my mother.I don't know if Mary Kilcoyne/Markey was married in Lincoln Kansas, and have not been able to track down any marriage records in either Kansas or Iowa.James and Mary Markey and family are listed in the 1920 Federal census.In 1920 James was 60 years old.He was born in Wisconsin and his parents were born in Ireland.Mary was 48 at the time, and was born in Iowa (apparently her parents moved from Kentucky to iowa to Kansas). Their children were: Andrew (they called him 'Ander' I believe), who was 16 in 1920, James Jr. who was 14 in 1920, Mary Teresa (my grandmother),who was 13 then, Margaret who was 11 then, Stella who was 8 then (and your grandmother I believe), and Florence who was 6 at the time (and I believe Florence was retarded, and lived with various sisters until her death).If you are Stella's granddaughter, I may have met you when you were very young and stayed with her and Jay Nelson in Redwing Colorado (and I stayed there with my grandmother for a couple of weeks).Please feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org (I go by 'Craig').
KILCOYNE --- Mary Mullin KILCOYNE
Lincoln Sentinel-Republican, Feb. 25, 1932
---Mary Mullin was born in Galway County, Ireland, and while her exact birth date is unknown, it is thought that she was born in the year 1844. When she was a young woman she came to America and located in the state of Pennsylvania in 1864 or 1865.
She was married to Thomas KILCOYNE at Louisville, Ky., in 1872. Seven years later, in 1879, they came to Lincoln county, locating on a farm eight miles southwest of Lincoln. They lived and reared their six children on this farm until the death of Mr. Kilcoyne, Aug. 10, 1906. After the death of her husband, Mrs. Kilcoyne removed to Salina, making her home there with her daughter, Mrs. Mary MARKEY. The infirmaties of old age, gradually overcame her valiant spirit and she passed quietly away, Wednesday, Feb. 10, 1932, at the age of 88 years. She was a devoted member of St. John's Catholic church at Vesper.
Interment was made in the Salina cemetery beside the grave of her husband.
Surviving their mother are four children, Pat and Delia Kube having preceded her in death. Those left to mourn their loss are John Kilcoyne, living in Louisiana, Thomas Kilcoyne, Dallas, Mrs. Mary Markey, Salina, and Mike Kilcoyne, who lived on the home farm southwest of Lincoln.
