15 Written by Brother Earnie ...

"Having earned the reputation of being the family historian, I have been coaxed and cajoled for years by cousins of mine to commit to paper for posterity my knowledge, garnered over many years, of the ramifications of the offspring of our maternal grandmother, Mary “Hopkins” Power. (There is no relation to Mary Hopkins, the Pop Singer, who topped the music charts at one time with the hit-song, “Those Were The Days.”)..."

23 Ann Hopkins

I knew Ann very well because she lived for years in Dublin in the early part of my years in the Irish Christian Brothers. Ann married a man by the name of James Nolan from Fenor, a village on the north of Tramore. For years there was a pub in Fenor bearing the name of the Nolan’s and, on inquiry, I learned that he was a relative of the pub’s owners. From Grandaunt Ann, I gathered that her husband was an upright and god-fearing man, and of fine stature. In truth, James Noland was highly respected in the life of Waterford of that day and worked in the Post Office, as did his son, Pierce, later on. They lived in the Mayor’s Walk at Number 23. My own parents purchased that house when the remaining Nolans moved to Dublin on the death of the husband/father. The fact that three of her sons were already working in Dublin was primarily responsible for Ann’s change of abode. She had six sons: John, James, Patrick, Pierce, Thomas and Ernest, after whom I am named. There was one daughter, Cissie, who, I learned from my aunts, was the Belle of Waterford in her day and had a galaxy of suitors, so attractive was she. All deceased now, but I had the good fortune to have known them all, except for Tom. A brief account of each follows: ...

He boarded at 9 Nashua St., Worcester with Michael Loughlin (no known relation). His father died at an early age and his mother was left with two daughters, Ellen and Bridget, and Thomas. She remarried, her second husband being a Michael McQueeny from Lurgandill, Dowra, County Cavan, Ireland. One of the children of this second marriage, Michael J. McQueeny, came to Worcester as a young man. Mrs. (Loughlin) McQueeny lived to a ripe old age, about one hundred years.

36 Mary Hannah Meade dob 1844 daughter of Thomas Mead
Children: STEPHEN ALBERT; born in Milford on July 30, 1873. THOMAS FRANCIS; born in Hopkinton, January 30, 1875. JOSHEPH MICHAEL; born in Hopkinton, February 2, 1878. CECILIA AGNES; born October 11, 1880, in Hopkinton. MARY MARGARET; born at Waltham, April 10, 1887.
The Mead family is among the oldest of England. It dates back to the time when surnames were first used in England after the Norman conquest, the origin of the name being doubtless from the old Saxon word for meadow. The name was spelled Mede, Meades, and Meade, as well as Mead. The spelling with the final ‘e’ is still common in some branches of the family in America.
Thomas Meade was born in Leary’s Cross, Castle Line, Cork, Ireland. His sisters were: Bridget Dinneen; Johanna Meade (New Orleans); His brothers: Garrett (New Orleans); Andrew (New Haven), a carriage worker whose first wife, Leahy, was from New Haven, and whose second wife, Conaty, was from Ansonia, Connecticut; John (Richmond, Va.); Patrick (Bally Duff, County Waterford, Ireland), whose first wife was Margaret Leahy and whose second wife was Margaret Brown.
Thomas was a merchant in Boston, owning a store. He moved to Hopkinton—became a contractor, and lived on a large farm. Children: Mary Hannah; born in Boston, 1844. Ellen; married Timothy Desmond of Worcester on November 25, 1869; Children of Ellen and Timothy: Clarence F., born in Worcester, January 21, 1872, married Sadie Clasby. Clarence was a physician. Children of Clarence and Saide: Clarence, Dorothy, Paul, and Arthur. This family settled in Waltham until 1914, moving to 19 Portland Street, Worcester, in that year. Clarence died in May 1919, and his widow and children moved to Long Beach, California in 1922. The second child of Ellen and Timothy was Walter J., born at Worcester, February 3, 1876. He became a lawyer after graduating from Harvard College in 1899, and the Law School in 1901. He moved to Long Beach, California in 1907, was appointed Superior Court Judge on August 3, 1927, married twice, and died in 1951, leaving his wife, Eleanor, and nine children—five daughters and four sons.
Timothy Desmond was born in County Cork, Ireland, on January 21, 1838. He entered the real-estate business in Worcester in 1885, and built houses on Shirley, Woodland, and Florence Streets. He also built the Gladstone block on William Street. He died March 23, 1902

47 Dies of pneumonia - complcations of a broken hip. Dies at Boston City Hospital. Bridget Power
 
48 Notes are transcribed as written by Margaret Olsen Power in 1989 - Although Aunt Bridget lived almost as close to us as Uncle Tom, I didn't know her. My sister Alice told me she use to come to the house when we were young. Alice said she would come home from school and Bridget would be there, stay a few days and leave the same way. She said she thought Bridget had worked in the home of one of those old Bostonian families on Beacon Hill and that she married the son and continued to live there. I first knew her about 1933. My father told me she was in the Boston City Hospital and he asked me to visit her. She was knocked down by a boy on a bicycle and had a broken hip. She was a very heavy woman. She seemed happy enough to see me even though there was nothing we could talk about. I was in Business school and my life wasn't that interesting. She was in misery, eventually went into pneumonia and died. I don't know what contact my father had with the family as he never talked about her. We went to the wake and someone pointed out a little guy in another room wearing a derby hat and said he was Fallon. He didn't speak to us and we were the only others there. There were two sons Joe & Robert. Some one told me Joe was a nice young man and worked in the Health Dept of the City of Boston. I never saw him. After the funeral Bob came to supper a few Sundays. Pa loved having company for supper and our friends loved coming. Everyone cooked, everyone cleaned up and we sat around joking and kidding each other. One night Bob was telling us that he went skiing in New Hampshire and the girls were all breaking into his room. Pa said "come boy we'll go for a walk". And I never saw Bob again. (He was not a Power). ~END~
