It appears that our families are connected. Ellen Quirk Hoar was my g
grandmother. She, by the way, was born September 30, 1859 & died on
June 19, 1941 in Haverhill, Massachusetts. I do have a Bridget Quirk
who married Thomas Kennedy. Did they go to Springfield or Holyoke? Some
of the family also went to the Chicago area.
The only information I have on Bridget & Thomas is that they had a son,
Con. Con married Mary Deane and they had 9 children: Thomas (m. Bessie
Good & had 1 son Arthur), Claire, John, Mary (m. Jese Canty & had 2
daughters Loretta & Claire), Michael (m. Hannah Kennedy & had 2 children
Mary & Dr. Paddy d. 1976 in Ireland), Nora (d. 1944), Kate, Margaret (d.
1974 Springfield, MA) & Paddy.
I would love to hear more from you.
