I am trying to find any connections to Isabella McSorley (born: 11 Nov 1875; Castlederg Co Tyrone Ire; died: 29 Oct 1947; aged 61; a housewife; liv 1212 Nth 18th St Phila Penns)
Isabella married twice.
1st Peter Coll - 10 Aug 1898; Phila Penns (died: 30 Apr 1901; aged abt 27; Phila Penns; buried: Sec 15, Range 21, Lot 21 Holy Cross Cemetery Yeadon Delaware County Penns)
2nd John McLaughlin - 9 June 1909; Phila Penns (bornL 12 Feb 1884; Magheraroarty Creeslough Ire (marriage cert); died: 11/15 Sept 1956; aged abt 71; a widow; liv 1817 Stiles St Phila Penns)
With Peter Coll, 2 known children:
1 - Susan: (born: 18 Mar 1899; Phila; died: aft July 1963; Phila Penns
• Susan travelled to Ireland sometime in 1927. She is seen travelling back home (1530 North St Phila) 26 Nov 1927, arriving New York 5 Dec 1927
She travelled again to Ireland sometime in 1937. She is seen travelling back home (1937 Poplar St Phila) 29 May 1937, arriving New York 6 June 1937
Susan and my grandfather Hugh McAnee (they were cousins) wrote to each other a number of times over the years. Sadly, only two letters survive. One letter, believed to be from this Susan, is dated 7.10.63 (Is this July 10th or 7th Oct?) In it she tells of her son Peter who is getting married Feb 8th, I’m assuming this is in 1964. And with the letter is a photograph of her son Peter in his US Airforce Dress Blues. A very handsome young man indeed. Despite all my efforts, I can’t find a birth or marriage record for Peter. But then what is his surname? If Susan married, it was after 1937, and she would have been aged anything from 38 upwards. In the photograph, Peter looks aged about 18 to 25, giving a birth year of somewhere between 1938 -1945. Maybe Susan wasn’t married. But even under Peter Coll/Call/Caul I can’t find him.
2 - John Patrick: (born: 27 Oct 1900; Phila Penns; died: Dec 1971; aged abt 71; Phila Penns; buried: Our Lady of Grace Cemetery Langhorne Bucks County Penns; married: Beatrice M Ward; 1937; Phila Penns - born: 25 May/June 1910; Patch Glenamaddy Galway Ire; died: 28 Dec 1994; aged abt 84; Phila Penns)
With John McLaughlin, 3 known children:
1 - Joseph: (born: 1 Mar 1908; Phila Penns; Enlisted US Air Corps 10 July 1941
2 - Daniel: (born: 16 Dec 1909; Phila Penns; died: 1 Aug 1911; aged 1yr8mths
3 - Mary: (born: 18 Aug 1913; Phila Penns; died: possibly 1 Jan 1986; Salem Mass)
Can anyone here relate or help me with this family?
