Dear Patrick,

Think the following might be an obituary for John's brother, William, based on age and occupation. Perhaps the cemetery or church might provide a clue to the other RODDYs.

Philadelphia Inquirer, April 2, 1895, Volume 132, Issue 92, page 7


RODDY-On March 29, William Roddy, aged 68 years. Relatives and friends of this family, also the drivers of the Pennsylvania Railroad cab service are respectfully invited to attend the funeral, on Tuesday morning, at 8.30 o'clock, from his late residence, 423 Worth street. High mass of requiem at Sacred Heart Church. Interment at Old Cathedral Cemetery.

Good luck,
