Message Board Post:
My great-grandparents are Robert Madden and Helen Flaherty. If I have lined up the
generations right, your husband and my father are 2nd cousins. Your husband's father
and my grandmother would have been 1st cousins.
My family has just recently spent time combing through my grandparents' things. Many
of the notes and photos in my grandparents' boxes referenced "Aunt Sophie"
and also a Cafarelli (Joe?)...but nobody looking through the stuff was exactly sure how
Sophie or the Cafarellis fit into the picture. So, with your query you have answered many
of our questions. Thanks!
I doubt I can provide any information on the Nichols family going further back than what
you have. It's possible I may have something further back on the Madden side - or
rather, I may have access to it through my dad.
In any case, it's nice to "meet" the wife of my 2nd cousin once removed.
