bullet  General Notes:

Just a note -- Southtown Economist, 3-23-1928 --Real Estate Sales in Southtown. Constance ave., 150 feet north of 75th (? or 70th) st., east front, 60x134, March 2 Richard Jurdan to Richard J. Shannon."

I sent L.F. (administered by Cafi Cohen) on Ancestry an email on 11-7-15, asking if he/she knows any more about Richard's family. Said I'd share what I'd learned and was interested in any more photos.

Richard's mom, Mary Willis, may have had a brother named Richard F. Willis because in the 1911 Census, there's a Richard F. Willis, age 39 (b. about 1872), Church of Ireland, who was living with a Jane Willis, age 77, also Church of Ireland. They were living in Kilbronoge (Ballydehob, Cork). Maybe this Richard is named after his mother's brother. -- source: Census 1911 via National Archives of Ireland.
