My first blog post
This is one of my favorite photos. It is my great grandfather, Edward P. Kennelly and his family. He was born in 1874 in Chicago, Illinois. He was one of seven children but by 1900 only two remained alive. He was a salesman at the Fulton St. Market and the father of three boys and three girls pictured in the photo. They are, from left to right Mary, Margaret (Peg), John, Owen, Anna Marie, and Edward Phillip, my grandfather. I love the family photos so much. I am eternally grateful to the family members who pulled their shoeboxes from the top shelves of closets and shared them with me.
