Worcester Irish Genealogy/History / Trainor/Rice: Louth to Leicester and Worcester
« Last post by NEMSTC on April 10, 2020, 10:23:31 AM »
Would like to hear from those who may have connections to Trainors and Rices from county Louth, later working in woolen mills in Worcester county.  Especially seeking those researching Alice Trainor 1812-1899 (Hugh Rice 1795-1877) and son, Owen 1844-1872; Mary Trainor, single 1819-1908, sister to Alice and finally a John Trainor 1816-1884 (Mary Rice 1821-1863) for whom I don't how they may be connected.
Thank you !

I attended Becker Junior College from 1968 - 1970.  Lived in Cedar Hall on Fruit Street.  Used to go to Theo's Restaurant all of the time.  The owner, Steve, was so kind and nice.  He bought the neighboring supermarket "Pennywise" and renamed it "Andon" for his two sons.  I believe Theo's Restaurant is now a Subway.  There was also a "Paraphernalia" boutique on the same side of the street.  A real 60's boutique.  Farther down the street (same side) was Friendly's Restaurant.  And of course, the infamous Boynton which is still there.  Who would have thought that?  Used to go to parties at W.P.I. - Sigma Phi Epsilon in particular.  Aaah, I miss the 60's - I miss those days!  Oh yeah, Notis Pizza too.  Oddly enough, I went back to visit in 1983 and Notis was closing that very weekend.  How strange - talk about timing.

Worcester Irish Genealogy/History / Toner/Connelly Family Tree
« Last post by NEMSTC on May 03, 2019, 12:38:20 PM »
Could use some help with anyone on the Toner/Connelly branch from either Worcester or Marlborough Massachusetts from the late 1850's-1930's.  Possible workers in the shoe industry and possible arrivals from county Fermanagh, northern Ireland.  I have found one family on FindAGrave  located in Immaculate Conception Cemetery in Marlborough; however, they were 'cousins' not on the main branch---one on the main branch, however, was Margaret Toner and Patrick Connelly married in Worcester on 11/20/1859.  I haven't been able to located any Naturalization papers for him, born about 1836-1838.  Lastly, I haven't been lucky with St. John's cemetery in Worcester either.

Any Toners/Connelly's out there to aide in my searching???  Thank you,

Worcester Irish Genealogy/History / Connolly/McAvoy Family Tree Branch
« Last post by NEMSTC on April 23, 2019, 11:28:52 AM »
Jane Connolly, county Fermanagh, daughter of Hugh Connolly and Anne Leonard, married James McAvoy from county Louth.  Jane was born 1831 and arrived in the USA 1848 with her brothers.  She married and later died in Worcester 1900  at 10 Wade Street. I am currently searching for her brothers who's names I don't know; however, they all resided in Marlborough, Middlesex county, Massachusetts--one brother had married daughters.  Jane was married to James McAvoy and buried in St. John's cemetery.

Any Connolly researchers out there?  Thanks.

Jimmy Barbone--from The NEW Breed who then became Alcock..sadly died last year.   He started the thread on the band and he emailed me and he and his wife and I reconnected. He left behind his wife Dottie and two sons.

Just wondering whatever happened to Steve who owned Theo's Restaurant on Highland Street?  He also owned the Pennywise Market next to it (and renamed it Andon's in honor of his sons Andrew and Don).  He was always so kind to me.  I was a Becker girl - lived in Cedar Hall on Fruit Street at the time.  When I was sick, he would send home orange juice and English muffins to me.  I last visited Worcester in 1983 & was told Steve was robbed at the restaurant and eventually moved.  Any updates would be appreciated.  Thank you.
