I'll have to do a bit more research at this end I think. So far I havn't been able to get a birth record for Maggie or her sisters, hence have no maiden name for their mother - so back to the drawing board on that one! I know that they were definitely Catholic, and living in the Chicago area in the 1940's. The only info we have is a letter they sent in the 1940's; letters were sent after this but have long since been destroyed. My grandmother (MAggie's niece) was the one who kept contact, but she died in 1967,and contact was lost. Anyway, thanks for the help - will keep you posted!
