Denise's Genealogy Journey

Siblings Day 2020

April 10th is Siblings Day. So I decided to do a chart to see how many siblings my direct line had. Not surprised too much but I did see gaps where I need to focus my research when I have time. And I should note these are KNOWN TO ME siblings through research. I feel like I may be missing a few here and there. Again, I'll add it to the list 😉

So here's the breakdown:

Me = 1 sister
Dad (Thomas Coughlin) = 3 Sisters, 2 Brothers
Mom (Sharyn Senecal) = Only Child
Paternal Grandfather (David Coughlin) = 3 Brothers, 2 Sisters
Paternal Grandmother (Constance Hall) = 2 Sisters, 1 Brother
Maternal Grandfather (Ernest Senecal) = 2 Brothers, 1 Sister
Maternal Grandmother (Eulalia Duprey) = 3 Sisters, 2 Brothers
Paternal Great Grandfather (Daniel Coughliln) = 5 Brothers, 4 Sisters
Paternal Great Grandmother (Bridget Agnes Williams) = 3 Brothers, 2 Sisters
Paternal Great Grandfather (Earl Hall) = 2 Brothers, 2 Sisters
Paternal Great Grandmother (Sarah Otis) = 4 Sisters, 3 Brothers
Maternal Great Grandfather (John Senecal) = 3 Brothers, 2 Sisters
Maternal Great Grandmother (Georgiana Yelle) = 7 Sisters, 3 Brothers
Maternal Great Grandfather (Eugene Duprey) = 3 Brothers, 2 Sisters
Maternal Great Grandmother (Melinda Sharrow) = 3 Brothers, 2 Sisters
Paternal Great Great Grandfather (JW Otis) = 6 Brothers, 6 Sisters

So to my sibling and all siblings out there, have a GREAT DAY (or at least try to 😛)!!!

National Homemade Cookie Day - Memories

Courtesy of PublicDomainPictures.Net

Today, October 1st, is National Homemade Cookie Day. Gotta love the holidays!!

While I am not a baker (my sister got that gene!), I have family members who were (or are). My mother, Sharyn Ann Senecal Coughlin, made great snickerdoodle cookies. I miss those. My (step) great grandmother, Elizabeth Ann Madden Torrance, made great tarts. I remember we would "help" her make those when they came down to South Carolina for the winters.

So on this National Homemade Cookie Day, go enjoy some cookies and remember all the good times you had making or eating them with family members past and present!!

Funny, Denise.  Ha! We could be related and probably are, way, way, way back when. My family emigrated from Ireland to Pennsylvania in the 1850's.  John J. Coughlin and Bridget Keenahan came over a few years apart, met, married, and the rest is history.  The name John J. Coughlin is repetetive a few times in each generation. They settled in Girardville, PA (Schuylkill County), and by the 1900's several were migrating to Philadelphia, PA.  It seems your Coughlin's are of Canada, New York, and MA.  It was nice hearing from you.  Let me know if we cross in our lineage anywhere, and I will do the same.  Take care.  Denise

Yeh, it is hard. We have been taking care of her for 20 years now and it gets harder and harder. She has 3 other sons that have never really taken care of her and I used to have a SIL that helped and she died about 5 years ago. But, now it is getting to the point to where she cannot do things on her own, so, her next to oldest son is now retired and trying to help (thank God). He and my husband are trying to put her in an apartment halfway between us and him and where she has people she can be with. One minute she wants to do it, the next minute she don't. He has fixed his extra bedroom up for her and she doesn't want to go over there. She just wants to come to our house. My poor husband, who is horribly sick with Psoriatic Arthritis, has to put up with her. She watches him and the minute he walks out to go to his shop and have some time, he see's her walking down there. We are trying to be patient, but, it is hard.
