Circa 1924 in Oakland, California. Peter Coyne and Martin Connolly were 2nd cousins via the Toole family of Leam. Two of Peter’s sisters (Kitty and Sarah) married two of Martin’s brothers (Michael and Patrick). This photo was probably taken at one of the weddings.
My family had this photo for years, never knowing who Peter was until a relative in Pittsburgh identified him. The Coyne family had 16 children – who primarily settled in Pittsburgh.
Martin Connolly was my Grandfather.
Any information would be great!
