|William B. Meany|
Mary Ann Quinn
Lawrence D. Meaney
|Marriage announcement found at Newspapers.com|
According to the announcement, they were married on a Wednesday in April of 1919. This would probably have been April 30, 1919 at St. Louis Bertrand's church in Louisville, Kentucky. I was told that Mary Ann and Lawrence were the couple on the right. Mary Weber thought the other man was a McTighe and the woman, Ms. Keaney. However, in the clipping, William B. Meaney and Catherine Keaney were the attendants. Mary Weber wrote that Catherine Keaney was a cousin and according to this marriage announcement, the reception was held at the home of the bride's cousin, Mayme Keaney.
So, how were the Keaney's related to the Quinns? Do they have a connection to the Dwyer family? Mrs. Dwyer was listed as an Aunt on Mary Ann Quinn's ship record. Mrs. Dwyer lived in Indiana and paid for Mary Ann's passage.
