Notes from "My Scrapbook" signed Mary Reilly Erhardt*

Sourced by Gerri Ellis in the mid-1990s, and Extracted from a GEDCOM. With Embedded Links and Contemporary Notes by her son Bernard Ellis

Duckie Agnes VIrginia Delaney told me that Grandfather John Delaney arrived in New York the day Lincoln was shot. (April 14, 1865, died April 15, 1865). He went on the street that night to see what all the excitement was about. An Irish cop asked him if he had a place to stay and if so to go there and stay in the house. Lincoln had been shot and they were hunting for any scapegoat. (Note from Bernard Ellis 1/15/2019 - My father had told the same story, and a note from Aunt Duckie confirmed. But good data shows that John had already been in New York for a year by then. The story is still probably true - it just didn't occur the same day he arrived. Or perhaps he was just returning from a domestic trip.)

Joseph Arthur Delaney born 1874, married Agnes Sabina Murray. (Note: and who was the sister of Mary Ann "Mollie" Murray, second wife of John Delaney.)Ellis-15229 03:45, 20 February 2019 (UTC) No children. Arthur died April 2, 1934. Agnes died on 9 February, 1943. Both buried in one grave in Delaney lot in C.C. Cathedral Cemetery. (Brother Art) in Delaney plot. Space:Delaney Plot, Section L, Lot 150, New Cathedral Cemetery

Margaret Ann (Delaney) Reilly born April 1876, married William G. Reilly in St. Mark's Church, Catonsville, MD April 25, 1901. Margaret (Sister Margaret) died Nov. 14, 1961. William G. Reilly died March 127, 1953. Both buried in Reilly lot N.C. cemetery. Children were 1) Mary A. Reilly (The Author) b. April 28, 1904, died July 1, 1971, married July 6, 1925 in St. Gregory's Church, Balto Clement Dumont Erhardt born 12-26-1903; 2) Margaret C. Reilly, born April 21, 1911 m. Nov. 26, 1942 in Immaculate Conception Church, Towson, MD Philip S. Rudigier born April 17, 1907.

The Delaney family moved many times after Grandfather and Aunt Mollie married in 1892. Aunt Kate Fair and Aunt Molly got along well together. About three years after her sister died, Kate went back to Ireland and married a man named Andrew Wilson.

Grandfather bought land near (?Nunnery) Lane in Catonsville, built a house called Violet Dale. It has been torn down and row houses took its place. The Delaneys lived in the 1000 block of Edmondson Ave. and later over a tavern Arthur Delaney had on Cumberland St. They finally came to roost on 813 Calvert St. It was during this period that the money was running out and Grandfather took a job as guard at the Penitentiary where his brother-in-law, John Leonard, was warden. Grandfather died Aug 14, 1915 and was buried in the lot he bought when his first wife died.

Duckie gave me the receipted bill for the monument and the bill from Henry Mears listing the cost in moving John Delaney's mother and brother from New York where they had died.
