  • Notes 
    • Frances's birth record (MAVR 351:258) indicates her father was a machinist, born in England, and her mother was born in Scotland; they lived at 166 Arlington in Chelsea, Massachusetts.

      According to the cemetery records (interment record 87249), Frances (Hayes) Connolly is buried with her daughter; however, there is no marker for her at the grave site. Aunt Lorraine and her daughter, Paula Smith, both remember that after the death of both her children Aunt Frances converted to the Catholic faith. They also remember "pocketbook" fights, where she and her sisters, Bella and Grace, would get into arguments and hit each other with their pocketbooks. Paula thought some of the arguments were over her religious conversion and giving her money to the church, among other sibling disagreements.

      According to cemetery records, Frances's husband, William Connolly, is buried with their son, William T. Connolly, in the Oakwood section (just across Birch Avenue) in the same cemetery, but there is only a marker for the son at the site.

      Frances's death record vol. 99, pg 418. Cause of death was arteriosclerotic heart disease complicated by pulmonary emphesema; time was 4:10 AM). She was a housewife, and widowed; informant was Grace Maggi (her sister) of 22A Sylvan St., Malden, MA. She lived at 65 Sylvan Street, and died at N.E. Memorial Hospital in Stoneham, Middlesex County, age 83.

    • 1996: Aunt Lorraine remembers that Frances had a son before she married Connolly; she believes she was married then, but he left her before the child was born. Frances gave the son up for adoption, and Aunt Lorraine said Frances knew who adopted him as she went to visit him when he was of adult age, but he would not see or speak to her.

      2011: Found records of Frances's first marriage to Joshua Converse Place and birth of their son Vincent. The family is together in the 1920 census. In the 1930 census, Joshua and Vincent are living with his sister Mary and her husband, Cyrus Wellington, in Bronx, New York, and he lists his marital status as "widowed." Frances appears in the 1930 census of Woburn, Massachusetts with her second husband and their two children.
