My Great Uncle, Patrick Flynn from Harbour Main, NFLD married Louise (Lucy) McGrath in March 1912 at the Immaculate Conception Church in Harbour Grace. Lucy was born in 1889 and was raised in Harbour Grace, a town 30 miles North of Harbour Main in Conception Bay. On the Rt, is a photo of Lucy's son Roy at the house Lucy was born in, during a visit to Newfoundland years ago.
In 1918, Patrick and Lucy along with their two oldest children moved to Hamilton Ontario, probably for the prospect of better work opportunities. Lucy was pregnant at the time of the move and gave birth en route to Ontairio while in Nova Scotia.
Lucy's grand daughter Susan states she has not found very much information about the McGrath Family, she knows her grandmother did have alot of siblings but wonders if the spelling of the last name was changed. Some say it was McGraw and was pronounced as such.
Susan remembers her father Roy telling her, that her grandmother was a great cook. She would bake 3 pies for her brood of 12 and since her granfather Patrick worked long 12 hour days, she would keep a piece from each pie for when he got home.
Susan states her Grandmother was a quiet, soft spoken woman who did not like gossip and never
believed in heresay unless she heard it straight from the "horse's mouth" as she she would call it.
Lucy died in 1968 at the age of 79 of Kidney Cancer. ( five years after her husband )
Thank You Susan for the Beautiful Story about your Grandma Lucy!
