Ancestors of the Week--Three Sisters
Left to right: Catherine (Kitty), Dora, and Mary Margaret.
In today's Ancestors of the Week we have the three Kane sisters--Catherine (Kitty, b 1886), Dora (b. 1893) and Mary Catherine (b. 1891). Mary Catherine--in her nun's habit--joined the Sisters of St. Joseph de Carondelet in 1920. Catherine never married, and we saw Dora a couple of weeks ago in the Happy Foursome photo with her husband Tom Fay, brother Cornelius Kane and his wife Anna Schmidt.
Interestingly enough, and aside of a couple of photos of their brother Cornelius, I do not have any photos of their father Cornelius (b. 1853) and brothers William (b. 1883) and James (b. 1895). But I do have one photo of brother George.....save that for later!
