Attn: Judy Dollard

Dear Judy,

I tried two of your email addresses listed on genealogy sites but neither of them worked. Hopefully you'll read this message.

I saw various postings of yours involving a Carl Foley married to someone named Marie. What do you know about Carl, Marie, or their descendants? I am very interested in tracking the records for all of my ancestors descendants. I believe that Marie is 'Marie Harney', daughter of my great-great grandparents Thomas Harney and Mary A. Harney, nee Carney.

Here are death notices for Marie's brother William (my great grandfather) and their mother.

p.s. I see that I neglected to include the enumeration district, page number, etc. for the census listings above. Let me know if you need them. I have online access to many of the censuses thanks to www.ancestry.com (paid), www.genealogy.com (paid), and www.familysearch.org (free).
