 Meet Mary. Mary McElligott, as per the spelling provided by Kim, who was inquiring from out of state in order to assemble her genealogy. Kim was quite appreciative of the library’s collection and willingness, saying, “thank you so so much for your assistance with this.  It’s a new found treasure for me!”

Dear reader, with historic interest, do you know why Mary’s family name may have been spelled  with an apostrophe: M’Elligott in her senior yearbook?
