Friday's Photo: Confirmation

This confirmation photograph belonged to my husband's parents. My father-in-law said that it was a cousin of the Quinn/Murray family, but was not sure who. I enlarged the photograph until I could see the ribbon. The confirmation took place at St. Paul's Church in May of 1927. The boy would have been born in about 1920. It is difficult to tell the exact day. I thought the 13th or the 18th, but neither are Sundays. Were confirmations always on Sundays?

Edward Dawson, son of Margaret Quinn and Harold Dawson was only two years old in 1930.

Patrick and James McGing, sons of Kate Murray and Peter McGing were also too young.

Mary Quinn Meaney and her husband, Lawrence had a son, William, who would be the correct age. They lived in Louisville, Kentucky where there is a St. Paul Church, but the age of the church is unknown.

The most likely candidate is Francis Meehan, age 9 in 1930, son of Sarah Murray and Edward Meehan. In 1920, Meehan family lived on at 218 117th Street in NYC, just down the street from a St. Paul Church at 113 East 117th Street.
