I'm not positive but I may have a connection to Annabelle Ratchford if her maiden name is White and she was living on 1418 Hollow Avenue in 1920 when she married. A Helen McGuire was Annabelle's maid of honor when she married James J. Ratchford of Newark at Holy Rosary Church in Scranton PA. Annabelle's uncle, Rev. T. C. White performed the ceremony. Also, a Robert May was the best man. I have no more information than this, but I've got the feeling there may be a connection. My thinking is that Helen McGuire is related to Annabelle in some way. My mother is a McGuire and her father's family spent many, many years living on Hollow Avenue, 1418 being one of the addresses, and I think Helen was probably the offspring of one of the 11 children of Patrick & Ellen McGuire, if not the child of Patrick & Ellen.

I'd be very interested to learn if I could add the surname of "White" to my family's history. From what little I know so far, my family was associated with Holy Rosary in Scranton and a lot of my ancestors are buried in Cathedral Cemetery in Scranton.

Hope to hear from you.

Take care,

Dear Annabell,

My name is Marie (Sager) Snyder, my mothers name was Jane Ratchfor, her mother was Annabell Ratchford from Scraton, So we might be related in some way if you wanted to email me with information about your parents and the chain to Annabell Ratchford maybe we could come to some kind of conclusion and find out we are related. I am looking forward from hearing from you. Sincerly, Marie
