Marguerite Tulley, 1922

Marguerite Tulley,

This website includes a picture of the 1922 second grade class at Holy Name Parish on Broadway on the southeast side of Cleveland. My mother was in that class and identified most of the children in the picture. She identified the fifth young woman from our left in the second row as a a young lady named Tully. There was a Marguerite Tulley living in the area, described below, who is probably her.

Marguerite Tulley was born April 25, 1913, in Cleveland, the daughter of Simon F Tulley and Mary Keating. In 1920 the family was living at 4140 East 139th Street, and Marguerite's father was a rivet worker. They also had a son Simon Francis Tulley, born in 1914. The family was still at that address in 1922, the year the photograph was taken.

Marguerite Tulley was living at 1403 Irene Road, Lyndhurst, on August 30, 1934, when she and Peter Kurzeika were married in Cleveland. Peter was a radio technician living on East 65th. They were separated by 1942 when Peter enlisted in the army, and were divorced by June 25, 1948, when Peter died.

Marguerite evidently married again to a man named Farrell, because that is the name on her death record information as transcribed at She died in Cleveland on September 16, 1996. She had at least one child, a son, although she might have had more since her mother's obituary said she was the grandmother of six.

For an article about one of Marguerite's great grandmothers, see Elizabeth Lawler, Kilkenny to Cleveland.
