Miss Margaret Lally

Miss Margaret Lally of Holyoke

December 1927

Miss Margaret Lally of Holyoke
Recently Married John O’Connor

I was charmed by this wedding photo of Margaret (Lally) O’Connor. Margaret Lally (936 Dwight St) and John O’Connor (78 North Bridge St.) filed marriage intentions in Holyoke in November 1927 and this photo was published in the paper on 04 December 1927. So they were married sometime between these dates.

Does anyone know if Margaret was related to the John J. Lally family of Holyoke?  In trying to research and connect them to the Holyoke Lally family I have some familiarity with, I found their obituaries. But this photo is too sweet to tack on an obit, at least today.
