     Mary Clare Healey was baptized on 15 January 1942 at Saint Mary's Hospital, Waterbury, Connecticut, Sponsors were Richard and Nora Carey, neighbors of the Healy family.12
     Mary Clare Healey was born on 15 January 1942 at Waterbury, Connecticut..13,14,15,4 (They gave the name Mary to Mary Clare in the hospital after her birth because she had to have a baptism name. They did not think that she would survive so she was baptized in the hospital. Gram said that she added the name Clare to it later. (They typically gave the name Mary or Joseph to infants in the hospital.)16) As of between January 1942 and September 1997, the address of Mary Clare Healey and Bernice Ruth Mahony was 100 Kelsey St., Waterbury, Connecticut.4 Mary Clare Healey was baptized on 17 May 1942 at Saint Francis Xavier Church, Waterbury, Connecticut, by the Reverend L. S. Kelly. Sponsors were Richard and Nora Carey, neighbors of her parents.17 She was ill with (an unknown value) between 15 September 1948 and 21 April 1949 at St. Luke's Hospital-113th Street and AMsterdam Avenue, New York, New York.18 She was educated at Hopeville School, Waterbury, Connecticut, Her favorites teachers were Marilyn McKay and Ann Balf who kept in touch with her until she died.4 She was confirmed on 17 June 1961 at Saint Timothy Church, West Hartford, Connecticut.19
     Mary Clare Healey resided between September 1997 and August 2004 at Wolcott View Manor, Wolcott, Connecticut.20,4
     Mary Clare enjoyed playing cards, making puzzles, and Bingo. She loved to draw and make hook rugs. She thoroughly enjoyed going to Easter Seals Summer Camp where she learned how to swim. She especially enjoyed when her nieces and nephews would stay overnight and spend time with her. She often played "school" with them and she was the teacher.4
     Mary Clare Healey died on 30 August 2004 at St. Mary's Hospital, Waterbury, Connecticut, at age 62 Cardiopulmonary Arrest due to Congestive Heart Failure.3,4,21 Mary Clare Healey's funeral was on 2 September 2004 at St. Francis Xavier Church, Waterbury, Connecticut, The following eulogy was written by Taryn L. Phelan, her niece, and read by Clare Elmendorf Kindall, her niece:
     "A friend is dearer than the light of heaven; for it would be better for us that the sun were extinguished, than that we should be without friends." (Chrysostum)
     Mary Clare was not only our sister,aunt,cousin, but also our friend. Plautus once said, "Where your friends are, there your riches are." Mary Clare was rich in friends; she was loved by all and gave it back twofold.
     Mary Clare would call me faithfully twice daily. In the morning, I'd hear about the activities she would be involved in: Bingo, ceramics, singing, getting her hair done, or just socializing. She'd say "Everyone knows me here." and it was true. She'd hop from room to room talking to patients at Wolcott View. Sometimes, we couldn't even find her when we went to visit because she was in someone else's room chatting. She was even spotted sitting in on the Baptist Bible classes faithfully! She was also our family's resident weather channel, letting us know if it would be too hot or cold to go outside and if a storm was abrewing. "Too hot to go outside today", she'd say. So, we'd take her for a wheelchair ride inside Wolcott View, sometimes with Gigi sitting upright on her lap. Gigi became "OUR" dog and she would proudly say that to anyone that came by to pet her.
     At Night, she'd call me again to tell me all about her day. She'd first say, "Hi, gorgeous" (gorshis) and I'd say "hi, beautiful". She often showed her sharp wit when I'd ask her what's new and she'd reply" New York, New Haven, New Hampshire". Sometimes, when she called I'd pretend not to know it's her and I'd say" Who's this...Aunt Patsy?" and she'd say "no". I'd go through all of our relatives' names when, in exasperation, she'd say, "Come on, Terry. You know who it is. It's ME, Mary Clare" and we'd both laugh. She would be excited to tell me she won $1.00 at Bingo that day. Suddenly, she'd ask how much money she has in the bank and I'd say "Millions", and she'd stop for a second and say, "Really?" Mary Clare would tell me about her day, providing me with essential information such as the number of times she voided and how many water pills she took. I would wince on the phone and want to say, "That's too much information", but I'd simply say, "that's nice, Mary Clare." Then, I'd sing her a French lullaby with her name in it, "Fais Do Do, Mary Clare" which means Go night night. She always had the same thing to say as she listened: "I like that". We would end with "Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bugs bite. I love you".
     When Mary Clare was born, the doctors didn't think she would live very long. In a time when so many handicapped children were institutionalized, her parents cared for her at home. Gram and Grampa Healey spent countless hours commuting by train to NYC to visit her in the hospital after one of her many operations. She must have had a high pain threshold because she never complained. In a time when special education was unheard of, two extraordinary teachers, Ann Balff and Marily McKay, taught her to read and write at Hopeville School. They both said this summer that she was more helpful to the children than anything else. Kudos to these fine unsung heros.
     As grandma got older, Mary Clare took wonderful care of her mom. I remember being in church at Gram's funeral when sudddenly the silence was broken with loud sobs of "I want my mommy." It was heartwrenching to hear. And she lost the aunts one by one. She told me a few months ago that she missed Kelsey Street and I knew that she meant that she missed her life there. Last Mother's Day she was a little melancholy and weepy and she said, "I don't have a mother"(to celebrate Mother's Day with) and I said " Your family is in heaven, but I'll take care of you here on earth and your whole family will, too".
     Then she'd say about Wolcott View, "This is my home now. I like it here. There's always something to do." And she was right. I often told her she was the boss when it came to decisions and she liked that. She would repeat, "I'm the boss," and I'd say "Yup, you're the boss". But, it was the kindness and generosity of spirit of the people at Wolcott View who embraced her and made her feel that she belonged there, that it was truly home for her. For that, we are all sincerely grateful.
     What does one say about her cherished sisters and brother who have loved her, nurtured her and cared for her her whole life? They have always incorporated her into their own busy lives. She would wait with anticipation for Maureen and Peggy's Sunday visits, with Maureen bringing her a cup of ice cream. Mary Clare couold always count on having Thanksgiving at Peggy's. She loved coming to summer picnics at Jackie and Ralph's house when she could swim in the pool with her zillion nieces and nephews. She would excitedly recount when Jackie and Bob would visit her. Janice would spend hours sewing hand made tailored clothes or redoing store bought ones since it was so hard to find clothes that fit her. She appreciated all the hard work that Janice did for her and laughed at Uncle Bob's jokes. Mary Clare loved her only brother,John. Every Christmas, I'd tell her how generous her brother had been to her and she'd finagle the dollar amount out of me. "Wow", she'd say. He's good to me." She understood money well. But, it was her Patsy who she adored, Patsy who she depended on the most. Patsy was more than a sister to Mary Clare; she was her friend, her care giver, her confidante. Patsy was always there for her and she never complaind about the difficulties caring for her or getting wheelchairs into the car or getting her up the stairs for Christmas and Easter or how much time it took out of her schedule to involve Mary Clare in our lives for family occasions.
     And Mary Clare loved her nieces and nephews. She's often say to me, "How many nieces and nephews do I have?" And I'd answer, "Lots." They'd come and do Irish dancing for her, take her to the movies and the drive-in, play cards, go see the Christmas lights in Hartford, and get her involved in Special Olympics. She loved watching them swim in the river in Southbury on the 4th of July. She adored her cousin, Mary Clare Keane. Even though we're still not sure how we're related, it doesn't matter to any of us. Mary Clare would call her cousin in Delaware on Sunday and chat with her. She often told me she missed her cousin and I could see why.
     Some people are so special that once they enter your life, it becomes richer and fuller and more wonderful than you ever thought it could be. Mary Clare was that special person and we'd tell her over and over. She loved to hear it. She knew we meant it.
     So, good night, sweeheart. Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite.
     We love you and will always remember how you've touched all of our lives.
                    Fais do do, our friend.22
     Mary Clare Healey was buried on 2 September 2004 at New Pine Grove Cemetery, Waterbury, Connecticut. (She is buried in the same plot as her mother and her father, but to the back of them.)4,23,24

Mary Phelan1

F, b. 9 March 1881
           Mary Phelan was born on 9 March 1881 at Waterbury, Connecticut. Born to Dennis Phalen and Mary Ryan.2,3 She was baptized on 10 March 1881 at The Immaculate Conception Church, Waterbury, Connecticut, by the Reverend P. H. Finnegan. Sponsors were John Dowling and Bridget Keenan. Parents are Dennis Phelan and Mary Ryan.4
     Mary Phelan appears as Mary Phelan, age 19, in the census of 15 June 1900 at 398 Baldwin Street (rear), Waterbury, Connecticut,in the household of John J. Phelan as his daughter.1
     Mary Phelan resided in 1900 at 398 Baldwin Street, Waterbury, Connecticut,1 and was a shop press at Waterbury.1 Mary Phelan was enumerated with the Phelans on the 1900 census. She was 19. It says that she was a daughter. However, there are a few things to lead one to believe that she was NOT a daughter:
1)It shows that Mary Phelan had 9 children, 7 of whom were still living. She had two other daughters, both named Mary, that died at a young age.
2) her birth would have been in 1881, the same year as one of the Mary's. She could not have given birth to two daughters named Mary in the same year.
3) Upon getting her birth certificate in Mar 1881, it shows that her parents were Mary Ryan and Dennis Phelan.
     I've tried to track this woman to no avail. On the 1900 census, Mary Hennessey mother said she had 9 children 7 of whom were living. Yet, there were 8 children on the census.
I called Fran Brennan in Middlebury (September 2007) who once told me he had Phelan relatives. His grandmother was a Mary Phelan, born about 1878 or 79. She passed away in 1932 at age 53. The 1910 census shows Mary and George Reid who had a son , George, in 1903 and a daughter, Mary, 1905. (This is Fran's mother, Mae, who married Francis X. Brennan). On 1920 census, it shows she was married to Thomas Delahanty. On 1930 Census, she was a widow. George and a son, Edmond Delahanty were living with her. This needs to be researched to confirm the link.
I also found the birth of a Mary A. Phalen, 9 Mar 1881. Parents: Dennis and Mary Ryan, ages 37 & 35. She was the fifth child. Could she have been a cousin who was living with the family on the 1900 census? The birth certificate of John Phelan shows him to be the third child of John and Mary. (Dennis was one, Mary who died was second, and then John in 1882. )That means she was not their daughter. Was she adopted by the family?

Grandpa Dawson1

M
Relationship3rd great-grandfather of Taryn Lynn Phelan
ChartsDawson Descendancy Chart
     Grandpa Dawson was a gatekeeper at Athlone, County Westmeath, Ireland, so says his great granddaughter, Anna Dwyer.1 He The following was taken from a book called The Place Names of Westmeath~The Ordnance Survey Letters referring to the County, Abridged and Edited, by Rev. Paul Walshe: The Parish of Ballyloughloe, Athlone, September 4, 1837.
     Dear Sir,
     The Parish of Ballyloughloe derived that name from a small village of the same name, situated about 5 miles east and north of Athlone, in which the parish church and chapel are situated. But the people never call the parish Ballyloughloe, but Calree, which was the ancient name of Magawley's country in Westmeath. The name Ballyloughloe seems to have been originally that of a castle situated on the bank of a lake called Loch Luatha, and to have been in latter ages transferred to the parish. Of this castle only one vault now remains, but its site should be marked on the ordnance map. I was always under the impression that Ballyloughloe was an English castle or garrison, but I find that tradition ascribes the erection of it to Magawley, the Irish chief of Calree.
      The following are the chief remarkable places of Ballyloughloe:
     1. The lake called Loch luatha. This has been drained and is now just dried up. It lies to the north of the old house of Mount Temple, and about four years ago it covered about two acres during the winter months. It still pours out a stream, which turns a mill at the townland of Creeve, and flows on to the Shannon.
     2. The site of Magawley's castle of Ballyloughloe, of which nothing remains but one vault as already remarked.
     3. Dunegan castle, now a ruin, in the townland of the same name.
     4. Not far from the site of the castle at Ballyloughloe is shown the site of a small abbey, but no remains of any walls. Immediately to the west of the site of the abbey is a fine spring called Fuaran, which is the general term for a cold spring throughout the district. To the east of the abbey lies a subdivision of the townland of Mount Temple, containing about one hundred acres called Grianan, which name it receives from a fort whch stands uopon it.
     (Walshe notes: there is not and never has been a townland called Ballyloughloe. Two townalnd names at least, which were in use until the Cromwelllian Period were obliterated by the Temple family, who gave the name Mount Temple to the place. These appear in the Down Survey map and in the Book of Surveys as Grynan and Monkestowne. The castle was situated on Grynan.)
     5. Near the Protestant church are the ruins of a small chapel, said to have been built by the Magawleys, chiefs of Calree.
     Calraighe was certainly the ancient name of a territory comprising the parish of Ballyloughloe, as appears from several evidences.
     1. The parish is always called Calree by the people
     2. There is a chapel in Ballynurry called the chapel of Calree
     3. There is a townland in the parish called Boyanagh Calree
     4. The hill of Tullymagawley preserves as a 'monumentum aere perennius' the name of the ancient Lord of the soil. It was perhaps, the hill on which Mag Amhalghadha was inaugurated. Mag Amhalghadha of Calraighe an chalaidh is of the southern Ui Neil, and descends frmo Maine, the progenitor of the men of Tefia. The following ruins of castles are still to be seen in this territory of Calraighe, and if, according to tradition, they all belonged to Magawley, he must have been a chief of no small power:
     1. The castle of Carn
     2. the castle of Creeve
     3. The castle of Cloghamarshall (Cloghmarichall)
     4. the castle of Moydrum .
     An esker or low ridge of sand hills runs very consrpicuously through this parish, and in the townland of Mount Temple, is cut across and formed into a military moat of ample dimensions and remarkable height, and I should not at all be surprised if this moat, with its attendant residences was the feature originally called 'Baile loch luatha'. It appears from the book of Lecan that this esker could not be the celebrated boundary called 'Eiscir Riada' which extends from Dublin to Galway, as that ridge strikes Clonard, Moylena (two miles north of Tullamore), and Clonmacnoise.
     It is now one o'clock at night.
     Your obedient servant, John O'Donovan.2
