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?
