John HOULAHAN and Catherine KENNEDY


 August 21, 2002:
Hi Al
Here's the descendents of John Houlahan and Catherine Kennedy in relation to 
the Houlahan Park Plaque. I focused mainly on Patrick the son as I 
have entered his last will and testament. John has one available but I 
didn't have enough quarters to copy it. I'll get it the next time I'm in 
Toronto at the Ontario Archives.

Don't mean to keep things busy for ya.

Take care
Taylor Kennedy
