I've "rescued" an old photograph of Rose CONLAN; Mary Ann CONLAN HAYDEN;
Margaret CONLAN WILLIAMS; and Kathryn CONLAN GREENOUGH; which was taken at
the Spaulding Studio in Whiting, Iowa. The photograph appears to have been
taken in the 1880's or 1890's with the four women appearing to be in their
teens to 40's at the time the photograph was taken. Under the name of Mary
Ann CONLAN HAYDEN the date "1892" appears, though I've no idea why.
Based on limited research I was able to gather the following information
regarding this family:
Margaret Christien CONLAN b. abt 1869 in OH to parents Owen CONLAN (b. Aug
1833 in Ireland) and Barbara DOLAN (b. Apr 1840 in Ireland). Margaret
married Ira T. WILLIAMS (b. abt 1869 in VA or MT) and together they had 7
children including, Mary Elizabeth; John; Linea L.; Eugene; Conlan; Charles;
and Anita WILLIAMS all born between 1895 and 1913.
Catherine G. CONLAN, daughter of Owen C. CONLAN and Barbara DOLAN married
John GREENOUGH on 30 Jan 1900 in Belgrade, MT. Catherine was born in
Cleveland, OH and was 33 years old at the time of her marriage to John.

I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that this wonderful old
photograph can be returned to the care of the family. If you are a member
of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me.
