There was a couple of people mentioned in the obituary for Hilda Ryan - a few details below in case you wish to investigate those further....................could we get back to Thomas Keating or Anna Garry from here  ???

First one was Robert Kenaan - Robert A Kenaan Snr -

So the connection seems to be the Scanlon family -

Just posting this - in case I lose it later  ::) There is a burial for Ellen Murphy born 1840 died 23 January 1895 - looks like Ellen was a widow who lived at 16 Eighteenth  but lived on on Penn Avenue as a previous residence. (looks positive)
