bullet  General Notes:

Belle Alice Hegarty Radcliffe remembers meeting either Kittie or Minnie when she was a young girl. Her dad took her over to her house, which she remembers as a small cottage-like house. It may be that Kittie & Minnie were living together, she doesn't recall. There were newspapers stacked to the ceiling, and the house smelled of urine. Belle's mom said she wasn't to go back when she got home and heard how bad the house was. Belle remembers the aunt was an old woman by this time.

When her dad, James Harold Hegarty, was young, this was one of the aunts that doted on him.
