Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: May, 1863
County Antrim, Northern Ireland
Death: Sep. 7, 1929
Wilmington
New Castle County
Delaware, USA

Elizabeth was born in Ballymena, County Antrim, Ireland, the daughter of Richard McKeown and Ellen (McLean) McKeown. She was the sister of Margaret (born 1858), Mary (born 1860), Bridgid (born 1864), Adeline (born 1867), Bernard (born 1871), Hessie (born 1878), John (born 1882), and Anne.

As a teenager, she immigrated to Pennsylvania, and worked as a domestic servant. Eventually, she met and married John Philpot Curran, a native of County Fermanagh, Ireland, and they raised their family in Wilmington, Delaware.

They were the parents of Margaret (born 1886), Helen (born 1888), John (born 1890), Richard (born 1891), Thomas (born 1895/died 1896), Bernard (born 1895), Matthew (born/died 1895), Adeline (born/died 1898), Hugh (born 1899), and Francis (born 1902).

Great-Grandmom Curran is remembered for her quick wit and fiery temper (which matched her red hair!).
