I'm not sure if I've written to you before, but this is what I have gathered
so far for my Gunning relatives in Boston (Roxbury). My great great
grandmother was Margaret Gunning from Ireland (not sure what county). She
married Thomas Hennessy, originally from County Kilkenny and one of their
children, my great grandmother, was Catherine Hennessy, born in August of
1884. At that time they were living at 23 Prentiss St. in Roxbury. A Thomas
Gunning was the godfather to my great grandmother Catherine. I also found a
birth entry for a Catherine Gunning, born March 23, 1888 in Boston. Her
parents were Thomas and Winnie Gunning, both from Ireland. It lists Thomas'
occupation as stableman. They lived at 16 Downing in Boston or Roxbury. I
hope to find more info on the Gunnings soon.
