Since Donahue is such a common name I am in need of any possible assistance in finding information on my grandmother. Am looking for information on a Mary Donahue who lived in Providence, RI in 1917 and gave birth to a baby she named Gertrude J. Donahue. This baby was my mother,born March 13, 1917. Her parents were both young and had to give her up for adoption. The only information we have on Mary is that she was seventeen and came from a prominent family in Rhode Island.
