    Notes 
    • Met Tom Whalen in high school(?) in Milford, Massachusetts (there was no high school in Bellingham at the time). Married shortly after high school. Family did not want her to marry Thomas because he was Irish and from Milford. Was going to name son Tom, but her family would not allow it.

      Excommunicated from Church because of divorce from Thomas. Children were raised by her parents. Worked as a live-in maid in Boston family for a time (for the Gilman family, owners of a large liquor store). Moved to Florida suddenly and bought a triplex.

      1920 Census lists her age as 2 and 11/12 years, born in Massachusetts. She is the only child listed. [2, 4]
