They both came from Ireland before 1860 and were married in Chelsea Mass. in 1861. Richard was born August 25, 1865. Sarah was born in Noel, Nova Scotia December 20, 1868. They traveled to Seattle, WA the day after the great Seattle fire. Needless to say Sarah wanted to go home. But being the strong people they were in those days. They stayed, they perseveered. Eddie went on to become a champion boxer in the early 1900's to about 1926.
Eddie and his wife Gertrude were killed by a motorist on the late evening of August 11, 1961. They both died from their injuries in the early morning hours of August 12, 1961. Gertrude passed on first, then Frank (Eddie). May God Bless you and Keep you in his arms. Cannot wait to meet you my Great Uncle Eddie. Mom says hello! :) Love, Your Great Niece.
