just saw this--my wife's great grandmother was Minnie Fitzpatrick and was apparently the older sister of Manuel Fitzpatrick (thier mom was Violet Spears, father unknown). Violet was married to Henry Fitzpatrick and together they had 5 kids. After he passed away she had Minnie and Manuel. Minnie married Joel Henry Conley.
We are having a reunion next weekend and it would be great if I could flesh out the Minnie and Manuel tie for it. We have posted a photo of Minnie and Joel with their first son, Carlus, on my page (Hazel Marie Conley Ball tree). If you have any photos posted of this line please let me know how to view them.
