Looking for any information related to Stephen Donahue [closed]

Looking for information related to Stephen Donahue. Would have been in the Detroit area around 1922, but did not necessarily live there. He was involved with a woman named Gladys Pacaud (a Detroit Business woman) and they had a child (presumably out of wedlock, but this is not certain because I can not find out if Gladys was ever married) named Edmund Stephen Donahue in 1923. I have been unsuccessful with finding anything out about him. He would be my Great Grandfather. My Grandfather never remembered him.  I have always had a hunch that Stephen Donahue is somehow related to Phil Donahue (the talk show host) because the resemblance between him, my Grandfather (Edmund), and my Father is uncanny.  Phil would be right between the two in age.  I have always wondered if Stephen could be a brother of Phil Donahue's father.  Any help I could get would be great!

Dear Chad, It helps the have the wikitree profile page attached with all information you have. This assist others trying to help you and avoids getting info you may already have. Did a quick search and believe the page in question is:


Later you may wish to set up a family mysteries page for the Donahue's, again linking to your page. Can help if you wish.
Have a nice day, Mike

Thank you so much for this answer.  You have already solved a real big mystery, and that was the name.  I can verify from the information on the marriage record that all of the info for the bride is correct.  I can now push forward and see what I can uncover!  New to the genealogy, but solving the puzzle is very fun and interesting.

Thank you!

Chad Donahue.

I could have too much fun with this one. Look closely at all documents, info available:

both sets of parents birth places dates of birth and on and on.

Will let you have the fun though, I love treasure hunts. Copy source citations and get the images were possible.
