Biography

Francis was born October 31, 1909 in New Jersey, United States. His parents were Frank Connolly and Anna Farrington.

In 1910 Francis (a newborn) lived at 53 Remsen Ave in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States with his parents.[1]

In 1915 Francis lived at 55 Remsen Ave in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States with his parents.[2]

In 1920 Francis (age 10) and his younger brother Edward (age 3) lived at 55 Remsen Ave in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States with their parents. Their maternal grandmother Mary Farrington (age 67) lived next door at 53 Remsen Ave.[3]

In 1930 Francis (age 20), Edward (age 13), and Robert (age 7) lived at 55 Remsen Ave in New Brunswick, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States with their parents. Their maternal grandmother Mary Farrington (age 78) lived with them.[4]

Francis married Myrtle Voultaine (?), probably before 1934 (when their first child was born)[5] and they had at least one child (see Notes).

In 1940 Francis (age 30), Myrtle (age 29), and their son Richard (age 6) lived at 51 Remsen Avenue in New Brunswick, New Jersey, Middlesex, United States. Myrtle's mother Teresa Voultaine (possibly incorrect transcription of surname, age 54) lived with the family. His parents and brothers Edward (age 24) and Robert (age 17) lived two houses away at 55 Remsen Ave. Francis was a clerk and Myrtle was a stenographer. The family name was incorrectly shown as Connelly.[5]

Francis may have married a second time (see Notes).

Francis was living in Milltown, Middlesex, New Jersey, United States when he died in December 1977.[6] He was buried in Saint Peter's Cemetery in New Brunswick, Middlesex County, New Jersey, United States.[7]

Notes

Children
Francis had one known child with Myrtle:

  • Richard Connolly, born about 1934 in New Jersey, United States

Possible Second Marriage
It is not known when Myrtle died (or if Francis and Myrtle were ever divorced), therefore there is no certainty that Francis married again. A death record has been found for Mary McGrann Connelly, born in 1909 and married to Francis Connelly when she died October 17, 1960 in New Jersey, United States.[8] No other records have been found for Myrtle, or even for her mother Teresa, mentioned in the 1940 census.[5] Other information found about Mary only includes the period up to 1940:

  • In 1910 Mary Mc Grann(age 3) lived in Atlantic City, Atlantic, New Jersey, United States with her parents John (age 36), Queenie (age 37), and siblings Francis (age 10), Eleanor (age 4), and John Jr (age 3 - probably Mary's twin). Her parents were both born in Pennsylvania and Mary and her siblings were all born in New Jersey.[9]
  • In 1915 Mary Mcgrann still lived in Atlantic City with her parents John and Queenie, and siblings Frances, Eleanor, and John.[10]
  • In 1930 Mary Mcgrann (age 22) still lived in Atlantic City with her widowed mother Queenie (age 58) and siblings Francis (age 30) and John (age 22).[11]
  • In 1940 Mary E McGrann (age 32) lived at the Schermerhorn Home (a charitable organization) in Milford, New Haven, Connecticut, United States. She was employed there as a counselor and had lived in Ridgefield, Connecticut in 1935.[12]
