The first part of the message is the same as i have, the name they gave as their cousin Deane may or may not be correct, a family that left their village heading to America in the 1860s was a Deane family. As far as we know their was only 6 children in the Healy family, 3 that went to America and 3 that never left Ireland, there is no Margaret in the family but she could be a cousin. We do not know if Mary, Ellen (Nellie) or John ever got married. Another angle is that a nephew of theirs John Healy b1910ish left Ireland in the 1920s or early 30s(he does not appear in the 1911 census in Ireland). He may have given their address as a place to stay, sadly he died within 15 years of arriving in America and we think that his children knew very little about his 2 aunts and uncle living in America
