Friday's Photo: Another Mystery Photo From the Quinn Family

This photo once belonged to Mary Anne Quinn Meaney and was sent to me by her daughter, Mary. 

Mary Anne Quinn Meaney was an older sister of my husband's grandfather, William Quinn. She traveled from County Galway in Ireland to Indiana, in 1905, to live with an Aunt, Mrs. Dwyer. I would love to know how Mrs. Dwyer was related to the Quinn family as I have never found the connection. 

Mary Ann moved to Kentucky and married Lawrence Meaney. Although she remained in Kentucky, she kept in touch with her Quinn siblings and passed several Quinn family photos on to her daughter. This is one photo without a name.
