I'll have to start the bidding with the "OM's" thats the Original Mulligan's for those not in the know...

All as kids with Grandma and maybe the neighbor's kids too???

In the last picture, if it is them, John and James look alot like the twins in Desperate Housewives...(a show my wife watches)

Good post Joyce.

I will be sure to print these pics as well. I am generating quite a portfolio of old family pics for Matthew and the next generations. Something that was not possible before the blog (BtB)... Mark's legacy is a good one...

I hope everyone else is making copies of these pics too...

I've been informed by interlopers that there are hyper-sensitive people sniffing around the blog. So, with all do respect I hope I'm not offending anybody when I say, I think this is a job for the old timers to sit down, make a strong drink, and give us young folks a family history lesson on who these people are.

PS I would rather hear history from the people who lived it.

Great work John.

joyce said...

John Thank you!! they look good. Can you fix the one of the three little girls? That one is obviously the oldest pic.

I'll give it a little while longer than I will reveal what I know of these pic. Then it will be up to the originals(as red put it) to fill us in.

Nice job Joyce..and great enhancements muggs..tru clan effort!

For most of the archive pics that have been posted I can usually recall having seen them somewhere, even if it was long ago. I can't recall ever having viewed these before and I am look forward to the revealing of the names...Wow!

Love these old pictures. I don't have any more like these.
It would be great to get the one of the three girls restored.

The three girls pic;
the girl in the back is Aunt Anne(grandma's sister who lived in Lockport NY she was older than Grandma but not the oldest)
Front Left: That is our Grandma( I see Aunt Maureen in her) the one on the right is Ellen(she was their 1/2 sister who as far as I know stayed in Ireland & never came to the US)
The oldest sister was Aunt Mary(who is not pictured here) She lived in Toledo,Ohio.

shich brings us to the other two pics with all the kids. They're not the neighbors or the Horan kids. They are Aunt Mary's kids in Toledo(last name Perry) One of The Originals will have to fill us in on their names. The Mulligans in those pics are our Mom, Uncle James & John(the outfits gave them away) & Aunt Maureen. I don't think Aunt Kathleen or Uncle Owen are in the pics but I cold be wrong.

So there you have it. hopefully i gave the correct info & if I didn't i know I'll hear about it!LOL!!
