Hi Deirdre, Just to clear up something that might confuse you.Pat Field and Irene Mehigan are me.I put my mother's name on first because I was a bit muddled with computing.
I have looked out the In Memoriam card and it has no extra information on it.It gives the name Helen (then what looks like C) Sanda.The card publisher was B.A. Murray Publisher, 51E, 125 Street, New York City.
My grandmother was Ellen (nee Edmonds) Mehegan and she lived in Queenstown (Cobh) Co. Cork.She was born abt 1860 and died November 1938.She had Memoriam cards for Ellen Cummins and Mamie Love.
In the 1901 Irish Census for Queenstown, there is a Helena Manning born in Co. Cork, age 20, housemaid at 7, West Beach.She doesn't show in Queenstown in the 1911 Census. I found a Helen Manning born abt 1883 who arrived in NY on 6oct1904, going to Elphin, NY to this address 446 East 120 Second Street, NY.
You say that Helen came through Philadelphia in 1920 going to an aunt in NY.I wondered if this is corroborated evidence.I found another reference on ancestry.com for Helen Manning coming through Philadelphia on SS Haverford arriving 14August1920, her father was Ralph Manning of 24 West View, Queenstown.This is probably the one on my In Memoriam card as my grandparents lived on West View. Helen was born in Kilrush, Co. Clare.The information on the Irish Census site is a bit confusing.
Her aunt's name was Mrs. Bridget Corbett 615 .. Street, Greenwich
I have found both Helen Manning and Anthony Sanda in a family tree on ancestry.com but it doesn't show any children.There is a living Manning who has put this family tree on ancestry.com.
I tried finding out more information for you but that was all I could come up with.
