I have scanned some pictures that my cousin, Phyllis, gave me and there is one of a gentleman that is labeled what looks like Geo - Father. He was right amongst family photos. It makes me curious who this fellow is. We have no known pictures of my great grandfather Patrick O'Neill and only two of his wife, my great grandmother, Julia Curran O'Neill. Other pictures are of my Aunt Virginia, my grandparents Sarah and Nick O'Neill.
Whenever I look at pictures from the past of people I know and those I don't know personally, it amazes me that these pictures tell a story too. Of the times, where they lived, how they dressed, the automobiles they drove, etc. In the picture of the unknown man, there are chickens in a coop behind him.
Another group of pictures came from a wedding video of one of my cousins, Joan Maloney. It was a find as my grandmother's sister, Auntie Nora Murray McCarthy and her son Dan were in the group. I didn't have one picture of Auntie Nora. I remember her fondly when my Auntie Rita used to take me to visit her in San Francisco. She was a lovely lady and very gracious and warm.
