Cecelia Patricia Rafferty/Gallagher Philadelphia
« on: Friday 21 August 15 16:05 BST (UK) »
Hello I am seeking the relatives of Cecelia Patricia Rafferty/Gallagher who died at 1949 So. Ithan St. Philadelphia on December 21st 1958. Cecelia was born in Yorklyn Delaware around 1911/14. She was the wife of Hugh Joseph Rafferty but resided all her married life in Philadelphia. She also had a son (*) (born 1947/53.) Could some kind Roots chat member please put me in contact with relatives of the late Cecelia Rafferty/ Gallagher? The father of Cecelia was named William and he was originally from Derry North Ireland. I would appreciate so much any family contact.

You can hire a Philadelphia researcher to look for an obituary notice for clues for further research and the researcher could also order a copy of the death certificate at very low cost.

Presuming that Advent has the death certificate since the address at time of death was quoted but if not, no need to go to the expensive of buying, send me a pm with personal e-mail address and I will forward a copy for you.  F.O.C

Burial was Calvary Cemetery - West Conshohocken PA - Informant husband Hugh.

Appears that Hugh (as above) was married and widowed. This loks like him on the 1930 Census with a wife and 2 children.  Perhaps if we come forward with these children, we might find reference to s step-brother born 1947/53 ish  ???

Earp Street Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 1930

Hugh Rafferty   25 Born PA. Fireman. Bokbinding Co.
Catherine Rafferty   25
Margaret Rafferty   2 Deceased
Joseph Rafferty   0 Deceased

Catherine passed away 23 October 1934 Philadelphia according to death cert. Buried Holy Cross Cemetery.

Cecelia's obit doesn't mention her son or any children, just her husband Hugh J. Rafferty.
