Final Post - Margaret's Envelope Post 9

If you've just happened upon this series, you may want to start at the beginning - go to the labels listed below on the right, select Margaret's Envelope and start with Post 1 - you don't want to miss a thing!
Margaret and her husband John Bellew lived in Central Falls Rhode Island until at least August of 1934, where they're listed in the city directory. Their son Alfred was born on October 27th 1928 in Central Falls, and was baptized on November 11th at the Holy Spirit Parish. In the 1930 census both John and Margaret are listed as Weavers at a local silk mill. Two of their boys graduated from the School of the Holy Trinity, a Catholic school in Central Falls. Hugh graduated in 1931 and William in 1932. Their youngest son Al attended school in Adams Massachusetts. John registered for the WWII draft in 1942, at that time they were living in Adams, Berkshire County, Massachusetts.

John Bellew died on December 15th, 1958 in Chevy Chase, Montgomery County, Maryland. Margaret remained in Maryland until November of 1968 when she entered a nursing home in Massachusetts and she died on December 5th, 1968. The last items I have to post from her envelope of memories are she and John's obituaries.

As I wrap up my posts of items from Margaret's Envelope, I want to thank my newly found Cousin in England - you know who you are! This dear lady has sent me a treasure of information on our family - 30+ BMD certificates on various members from our various lines in England and photos that sometime I hope to share here. It will take me days to get through all the info and get it all entered into my database.
