Friday's Photo: The Quinn Family

Mary and Helen Quinn - Photo taken at Mueller's on 2196 Third Avenue in New York City.
This beautiful picture of two girls was sent to me in 2007 by a descendant of the Quinn family. She was unable to identify the girls.  However, just two weeks ago, we visited my husband's aunt and she immediately identified them as Mary and Helen, the daughters of John and Ellen Quinn.  

John Quinn - Passport Photo
John Quinn was born in Kinvara, County Galway, Ireland on June 14, 1890. He was the son of William Quinn and Bridget Brannelly of Kinvara. His brother, William Joseph Quinn was my husband's grandfather. 

According to John's passport application in 1924, he came to the United States on October 28, 1914 and was naturalized as a citizen on June 8, 1918 in Spartanburg, South Carolina while serving in the United States Army. 

The 1930 census shows John married to his wife, Ellen and working as a taxi cab driver. 

This is John Quinn and I assume that the woman is Ellen and that this is a wedding picture. This picture was also taken by Mueller's at 2196 Third Avenue in New York City.
