Hello slorahs and cullinans
I wanted to let you know that i have done some more researh on your grandfather James Cullinan and Jessie Slorah. I went to the public library and used their local researcg center. This is the first active piece of reseacrh I have done on the family in over a year. there just never seemed to be any time.
Anyway this is what I found looking throught the city directory for James and Jessie.
James in 1909 lived at 308 Prescott street in Plainfield he was a machnist
James in 1934 lived at 918 5th street with Jessie
James in 1935 lived at 1037 5th street with jessie
Jessie in 1938 lived at 1037 5th street
Jessie in 1940 lived at 1037 5th street with Richard an advertising executive.

On a tip from the researcher, I called a cemetary called Hillside cemetary in plainfield, close to the border of south plainfield, The researcher gave me the number and hit pay dirt.
They had James and Jessie and Allan and Elise all buried there.
These are the dates that they had listed in their accounts there.
James died on December 27, 1936
Jessie died on January 19, 1968
Elsie Laird died on August 30, 1986
Allan Laird died September 4, 1945

I looked Elsie Laird up on Family, they had her listed as being born on Aug 30, 1986 and died on August 1986. The question I have is if you know if she lived in Texas when she died. because they have her last address, Memorial Park, Harris Texas. Her social security was 138-26-6611 and she lived in New Jersey when her social security was issued.
I was also wondering is their son, Gordon Laird still alive and does he or did he live in texas . I started wondering if he went to Texas for work and took his mom with him.
anyway, I just wanted to let you know what I have found.
In the last couple of years, since we have talked
