This is a post I wrote back in 2013 after Robin shared more than 100 old pictures with me in 2011. It was about what I called then the A-Team.
There were so many pictures Robin scanned to look at that some were left to be identified later.
This one I think is directly related to my distant relatives.
cousin Mary Malloy
We have to assume that Sylvia Elizabeth Bleau, Agnes Alexandre’s daughter, wrote the caption if we compare both handwriting.
I am no expert, but it seems that way.
Mary Malloy or Molloy would be Bertha Molloy the daughter of Philomène Alexandre and Thomas Molloy. Philomène is related to this family. These are her parents with her sisters Myra, Agnes and Helen.
Jean-Baptiste Alexandre’s family
Mary was born 23 April 1893 in Adams, Berkshire, Massachusetts.
Here’s another picture also scanned by Robin.
Agnes Maloy… Same handwriting. Different persons?
Not that important unless you are related to her.
Thomas Molloy and Philomène Alexandre had these children:
James Thomas Molloy 1887 –
Jean-Baptiste Molloy 1890 –
Agnes Marie Rose Molloy 1892 – 1894
Bertha Molloy 1893 –
Eva Molloy 1895 – 1896
Albert Molloy 1897 – 1897
The only possible Mary Malloy or Agnes Maloy is Bertha Molloy born in 1893.
As for Philomène she died in 1906.
Philomene was the sister of Agnes Alexandre who was Sylvia Elizabeth’s mother.
So this makes sense. Agnes was Mary Malloy’s aunt and Sylvia was her cousin.
I never could find much more on Thomas Molloy. Sometimes you hit a dead end, but sometimes someone write a comment and the floodgates open.
Now there was one more picture without a caption.
