Thank you, Kathleen for your reply, and so much info!
John "O'K" Enright used the Middle name on his naturalization papers, and it was on his death certificate and I have his watchfob, with the Monogram "O'K" engraved over an "E": I am assuming it was his mothers maiden name?? Or his Maternal Grandfather?
I believe the Denis Enright married to Margaret is NOT John's brother; I know that their "Uncle Denis" gave a China clock to my grandparents for their wedding in 1907--so he was still alive then, and the other Denis died in 1906; I have the death certificate for Mary Enright, who lived with my Great Aunt until she died, and she supplied the death information, so I know that was correct, and it indicates that Mary was "Single", and that her Father was "John Enright".Mary always lived as a spinster with someone in the family, and my great aunt lived to be 100, and sharp as a tack--she' the one who gave the info.She spoke of her Uncle Denis and the clock, but never mentioned a wife, or cousins.I did NOT have the link for the Chgo. Tribune Archives, so that may prove to be a treasure to explore...I really appreciate your help in this--I am so tired of trying to get past this Brick wall! (Denis Enright ins not buried in the John Enright plot at Calvary; the Denis buried there is John's son. Our ancestors didn't help us much by using their traditional naming patterns for their children!!!)
