bullet  General Notes:

"Now for something about Mother's mother's people. Her father, Michael Duffy, was born in Dublin, Ireland, and came to New York with his sister as a boy or a young man. After a time in New York he and his sister came to Washington. His sister married a man by the name of Burns who died early and left her a widow. (His name was John Burns). The sister, Mary Duffy Burns met an indian from one of the Dakotas who was in Washington, D.C. to negotiate for his tribe and married him and left for the west. She was never again heard of, and no one knows what happened to her.

Michael Duffy married an Irish girl from Virginia, Ellen Cronin. They had a number of children, of which Mother's mother and Aunt Ella Bright were two, and then she died at the age of 37, which was shortly after the Civil War. During the Civil War, Michael Duffy operated and owned a hotel across the street from the old B and O RR depot. He made a pile of dough and at one time owned a goodly share of what is now all built up Washington, D.C. 24
