Yes. Yes. I have been doing research on the family for over 26 years. I grew up going to my great aunt Margarets house as a child on 1302 Grove Street. We used to climb the mountain near the house. My mom was born in Scranton and they all evetually moved up to Middletown NY where I grew up. My grandmother is Kathleen Nolan King. My great grandmother Helen McDonnell Nolan married Francis Nolan (Son of Ellie.) She died at 38 years old after giving birth to her last child. Would you believe I have the quilt that was handed down to me that My Great Great Grandmother Ellie made out of all the dresses from the girls. I know the family very very well. We always referred to them as Ma and Pa. My grandmother lived with Ellie until she passed. I even have my GG Grandfathers huge dresser in my living room. I live hear in Avon, CT. I go to Avoca every now and then to visit the graves. All my family married in St. Mary's and went to the elementary private school across the street. I know the families that are all buried in St. Mary's but finding it difficult to locate the other graves. I also have the handwritten genogram but miss so much information I have the original picture of Ellie when she was young with all of the kids that was taken in the original frame. My email address is Michelle_Quesnel@yahoo.com would you be able to email me everything you have and we can exchange stories. What is all of Ellie's and your grandfathers names. I have a picture of her in a frame as well. This is so exciting. I have spoken to Marion Ostrosky whose mother was a sister to Ellie as well. Ellies sister delivered my great uncle Edward Nolan on Christmas Eve. Her sister taught my grandmother and all the sisters to cook. So good to meet you! Looking forward to hearing from you! I have been searching aimlessly for more pictures and connections! Thank you so much!!! Talk to you soon!
