    I am trying to verify lineage of John Coyle – born ca 1875 (from Cavan).  Per his wedding cert (November 1904), his father was called Eugene.  John was also a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians.  In this photo is DEFINITELY

    (1) John’s wife – Maggie Coyle (originally Margaret Annie McCarney from Trillick).  She is on the front right – holding a hat.

    (2) his daughter – Mary (Molly) Josephine Coyle – she’s the young girl in the back who was born in 1919.  I’d guess the photo was taken in 1927 – ish.  Molly was his only child.

    (3) Potentially his mother – sitting in the middle (next to Maggie Coyle) and looking downwards.  I’ve been told she was called ‘Granny Sheridan’ but I’ve found no evidence of a mother of that name for John – who was still alive in 1927!  She apparently was from Cavan also.

    (4) Can anyone identify the location ?  Or any of the folks in the photo ?

    Would be really thrilled to get any info at all.

    Many thanks,
