Hi JB -
John's tree on ancestry does not have anything about John Power, born 1844, the brother of Thomas (1846). He doesn't have any of Thomas Power (1846)'s brothers or sisters. And that is as far back as his tree goes - to Thomas (1846) and Mary Walsh.

Hello JB -
No, John's  tree on ancestry  doesn't have any of that family. The only thing he has is that Thomas Power was born 1876, and is the son of Thomas Power (1846) and Mary Walsh (1852). He doesn't have his wife, Alice Scanlon, or any of their children.

trace all his living descendants and see if they have any pictures of him.

A fellow researcher who has been researching Social Security tells me 1937 was it's first year so early errors and omissions could happen.. Could mean she died around the time the service started or sometime earlier. Also she would been under 65, the age to have a SSN, so possible the record referred to her death.

Strange about the ashes. Presume it meant no living relative could be traced ( or wanted to be).

You get a SSN when you apply, not when you retire.

Hello JB -

No. John Power's tree on ancestry does not have the grandparents of Patrick Power (1873-1952), who was the son of Thomas Power, born 1846, and Mary Walsh, born 1852.
It has no further information on this Thomas Power and Mary Walsh.

And the tree does not have the grandparents of Hannah Walsh (1889- ) daughter of Thomas Walsh (1861-1893), and Mary Roche (1856-1940)

It does say that Thomas Walsh was born 21 Jan 1861 in Haggard, Glenmore, Kilkenny and died 22 October 1893 in Haggard.

And it says that Mary Roche was born 9 July 1856 in Forristalstown, Glenmore, and died June 1940 in Jamestown, Glenmore.

It says they married 21 Jan 1886 in Kilmakevogue, Glenmore.

I haven't checked those dates myself in the civil records online.

Edit: He arrived in Philadelphia, so there would be no reason to presume New York City for an address. There is no 220 W 221st St in Phila today.

here is his 1910 arrival on a free site:

The passenger list says his final destination was New York, NY, so I would think the address of the person he was joining was in New York City, and 220 W. 221st St. fits.
Thanks, I didn't notice that.
And James Rose said he was headed to New York as well.

You can apply for a copy of her SS-5 form - that's the application she made when she first signed up for Social Security. Besides what you already know - her parents, her date of birth, etc - it will tell you her address when she applied. If that information is worth the time and, I think, money, then go ahead.

You might have to be able to prove her parents have died. I know you have to with more recent individuals. But there might be a cutoff year before which you don't have to. (And as Jaywit mentioned, the SSA already admits that Edith has died.*) Try Googling "applying for a copy of someone's SS-5 form" or a similar phrase.

edit: * so logically they should be willing to admit that her parents have died, without your having to prove it to them.
