My Dear Mick

Just a line to let you know we heard from Kay - She said Owen Farrell's son called and told her you were in the hospital the same time as his father - You had a nosebleed some times that relieves the blood pressure - How do you feel now - try and write a few lines and let us know.

We will probly be over there the first of April or the last day in March.

Did I tell you Mary fell on the ice and fractured her left wrist - but she is coming along ... now.

thank God .. about getting dose that your woman in Wm Johns place take care of you --we are glad you have someone like that around

We are having a lot of snow but it could be worse. How is Brigid Hanratty and Teddy also the Bradleys and the Golloglys and Mary Kate McNulty? Give them our regards and Mickey take care of yourself

and write soon
Best regards and God bless you
Mary & Bea

Death between February 1979 and October 1992      
Event Note

On January 31, 1979, Mary and Brigid wrote a letter back to their brother Mickey from Summit, NJ.
Her brother Michael's death notice in October 1992 mentioned only one surviving sister. Mary Ann's sister Bridget died in 1996.
I looked at the index to New Jersey deaths from 1979 to 1992. There is no match for Mary Ann Carroll. Those records include age at death.
The death record index at does not include the years 1958 to 1983. There is no match on "Mary Ann" at gro from 1984 to 1992. There is no match on "Mary Ann" at freebmd from 1979 to 1983.
She might be listed under just "Mary" at either the gro or freebmd. Or she died somewhere besides New Jersey, England, and Wales.
She might have died in Armagh, but she is not buried with her father Bernard and brother Michael in Dromintee churchyard.
