Are They One in the Same?

A week or so ago, during my research, I came across an engagement and wedding announcement, neither of which were what I was searching for.  However, they caught my eye.

"Aunt" Pat, it is assumed, was a close family friend.  We know that she married a Murphy, and later a McNamera.  She was probably around the same age as my grandfather, putting her birth date around 1918.

What I came across, was a Patricia Cahill, who married a James Murphy in 1940.  Could this be our "Aunt" Pat, who would actually be a relative, not a close family friend? 

I have yet to find any other information (it's on my to-do list).  But, I have the photos that were in the newspaper announcements for Patricia Cahill and a photo of "Aunt" Pat taken around the same time.  There are some similarities, but I am certainly no expert.  Could they be the same person?

They look like the same person to me.

On NCIS, they'd just run their facial recognition program and have the answer for you in less than 2 seconds. Too bad you don't have that software. 8-)
