This Made my Day
One I missed while I was ill
John Carpenter came and went while I was indisposed but he sent me a few photos of his visit. John's Listowel ancestral home is in Upper William Street where his cousin still lives.
John's late mother, Mary Elizabeth was born a Moore in New York City to William Moore of Port Henry, NY and Johanna Buckley of Listowel. Johanna was the daughter of Laurence "Lar" Buckley and Ellen Kearney. Johanna and William Moore had 4 children, William, Mary, George and Regina. Only George and Regina remain. Both Johanna and William died relatively young and both had passed by the end of 1940. Mary Elizabeth was predeceased in 2001 by her beloved daughter Mary.
