Downey Twin Boys Married Gleeson Twin Girls ~1910

I was reading some old family notes, and came across a sentence that said "twins Mary and Catherine married twins Jim and Frank Downey".

Data is still incomplete, but I have a good start.
John Frank Downey and James H Downey, were born in 1871, in Missouri. Their parents were Michael Downey and Jane Burnam.

Mary Gleeson and Catherine M Gleeson were born on 19 Sep 1888, in Kansas. Their parents were Martin Gleeson and Bridget L Burke.

John Frank Downey married Mary Gleeson, about 1908, and had their first child, Martin J, in 1909.

James H Downey married Catherine M Gleeson, around 1913?, and had their first child. Opal, in 1913.

James and Catherine Downey are buried at Calvary Cemetery, in Wichita KS. (Headstone can be viewed at

John Frank and Mary Downey moved to Colorado around 192x. I believe they are buried at Evergreen Cemetery in Colorado Springs, but have not confirmed that as of yet.

If anyone has additional information on these two sets of twins, I'd be interested.
