Brenda, Mary Josephine Alice Yorke was my great-great aunt. There is a San Francisco connection. When Mary died in 1896 (age 34), her mother Brigid Kelly (Yorke)Humphreys came up from S.F. to care for the (some records 7 some 6) children. Then when Theodore died in 1898 Brigid moved the children to S.F. where Mary's brother Father Peter Yorke lived. One of the Davie girls married a Guichard, who had a son Harry (b. 1917) who lives in San Francisco, who had 3 sons (Peter was one, Robert and Jim) and one daughter, Renee, who married Dan Salvemini, who have 2 girls and 2 boys: Grazia, Mia, Joe and John (who live in Daly City, CA). Father Peter Yorke was a well loved member of the S.F. community, a memorial marks his death each year.
