McCUE, Evelyn

Evelyn McCUE, 1919
This photo of Evelyn McCUE was located last week at the Palm Beach County Fairgrounds Antique Show in Florida. The photo is a full body shot and presented in a brown tri-fold cover inscribed "Evelyn McCue, B.H.S. 1919." The brown cover is also embossed with a small stamp which reads: Rand, Brockton, Mass.  I believe B.H.S. stands for Brockton High School, and the photo was taken upon completion of her education.

Evelyn McCUE, born 6 Nov 1899 in Randolph, Massachusetts, daughter of Edward T. McCUE and Mary DUFFY.

Marriage record for Evelyn's parents indicate that Edward (b. abt 1863) is a son of Patrick McCue and Sarah (unknown). Mary (b. abt 1864 in Ireland) is a daughter of Patrick Duffy and Mary Burns.

Birth record for Evelyn, notes indicate that Edward was born in South Weymouth and Mary was born in Ireland. Edward worked as a "Treer"  in a shoe factory. (Evidence points to him dying in Randolph or nearby Brockton MA in 1903-1904).

Edward and Mary also had a son (Edward P.) born April 16, 1904, which lived a day.
