She was from Haydock England and this is where she met my GFthr and married in the 1920-1921, I know her parents lived there (or someone) as she had tow other sisters (Catherine, think named after her Mother which I think was Catherine )nee Hughes) Carlon, Michael or John Carlon was their Father...never knew when their Parents passed as when they came to the US in 1923 (spent the intervening years in Sligo Ireland ) they never went back from what I know.. So if you could tell me all you know I will return with all I know...been searching Carlon surname in Lancashire/St. Helens area of the UK for some 10 years now, even called a few Carlons there...they must have thought I was nuts.....
