MM has mostly Irish DNA in his family tree, through both parents. This is his grandfather Edward on his Mom’s Haley side:
And Grandma Alice, wife of Edward:
Alice died of pneumonia quite young, leaving Edward alone to raise these gals (mother Margaret is on R) and their older brother, Arthur:
Three other Haley children in the family (two boys, one girl) also died very young.
Some strong DNA was passed down from all these folks, well, except for Arthur and Catherine (long braid). They never had children; only Margaret and Leone continued the Haley line, producing a total of seven children.
Sadly, there is no one left of the older generations to help identify a lot of photos that I have, so they shall remain anonymous in all likelihood.
Keep those memories going, Peaches. History needs preserving.
Happy Thursday, y’all!
