I wonder if you know if Owen McDaid had any family(even cousins etc) living in Woburn and Winchester MA? If so therre could be a connection on that level--maybe.
William McDaid April 4 1874 in Glenkeen Co Donegal. Died in Winchester MA Oct 14 1923 m Rose "Mullier" Doherty dob Jan(June) 16 1874 in Milltown Carndonagh Co Donegal died July 25 1951 in Woburn MA They married Dec 26 1901--but not sure where. Their children were Daniel Wilfred,Margaret Teresaa,Jeremiah William,Helen Rose,Mary Ann,Daniel,and I may be missing one or two.
Should you or anyone see a connection--I have more information on this family both in Woburn/Winchester and in Glenkeen Carndonagh area of Co Donegal.
