Re: Nilan in Conn.
A Katherine(Catherine) Nilan attended my great grand mother's wedding in October, 1889 at St.Raphael's Church,
Blissville, NY(Long Island City, Queens, NY.)
She was supposed to have lived on Spring Street, NYC and was a friend of Mary Madden, my Great Great Grandmother.
Mary Madden had married a Michael Tracey. She died about 1886, or 1887, when Mary Agnes Tracey was young.
Mary Agnes before she married Michael Flaherty had moved to Yonkers and lived, or worked for the Hutchinsons.
Any help here will be deeply appreciated.
Michael Flaherty's uncle was a Simon Flaherty who organized prize fights in the area and was involved in
horse racing before NYS outlawed in 1910.
