Replying to Walter Healey's reply to Miranda:
My grandfather was named John Healey- died in 1951 when my mother Dorothy was 9 in New York City. His parents supposedly came from County Cork. He was born March 15, 1900 and went back to visit Ireland when he was 12. He was a sports writer in New York City and liked to frequent the track. Is there any relation. My Mother's mother name was Dorothy also and I guess they married sometime before 1942 in New York when my mother was born.
