Hello. The information you have on the Finnegan sisters in Beeville, Texas, is very interesting and helpful. Since you said you were going to start looking for Catherine Finnegan Stone, I thought I'd share some more information on Catherine and her daughter, Laura Stone Hamill, who was my great grandmother (I'm shortyesq's siser). I seem to have come to a dead end on Catherine with her last appearance in the 1910 census. She was then living in the Hotel Touraine, 256 Delaware Ave., Buffalo, NY, with her twin 4-year-old grandsons. Their legal names were Robert and Herbert Hamill, but the census gives their last name as Barrett. Their father, Bernard J Hamill, was an actor who used the name Neil Barrett on stage. Laura was also in the theater, acting and playing piano, but I think she used her real name. All of the documentation I have is posted to my family tree, EShortell family tree. Laura lived in Arizona and Los Angeles later in life, and had quite a long life. I remember her.
