Henry H. & Margaret B. Rafferty, KY 1920
I'm looking for any information, stories, facts, anecdotes about my grandparents on my father's side.Henry Hovius Raffety and Marguerite (Margaret?) Blend Rafferty lived in Louisville, KY, in the first quarter of the 1900s.My father, James Allan Rafferty, was born about 1921. His siblings are Mary R. Kyer, Joe (deceased), and Ann R. Whitman.All I know about Henry Hovius R. is that he was a newspaperman who worked for one of the Louisville papers, and he died of causes I don't know about sometime in the 1930s, when my dad was still a child.Marguerite passed away some time in the 1960s. My father says they were of Scots-Irish origin.Can anyone out there help me piece together his side of our family tree?Can anyone tell me what Louisville was like for the working Irish in the 20s and 30s? What were the names of the newspapers at that time?It matters a lot to me.My father is 77, and he is not well now.
