Lily's mother Ann was my Grandmother Lily Powderly MacMenamin's oldest sister (and only sister).
Both Lily and her older sister Anna and their brothers grew up on 8 Cameron Street in Dublin.
After Anna married - she moved across the street, where she raised Lily Dorman (named after my grandmother) and her 2 sisters & 2 brothers.
Lily & Aunt Alice were "long distance cousins" their whole lives. Aunt Alice visited Lily in Ireland 2 times, and Lily came to America once. This is a picture in the Granville House in 1969 with Lily in the Blue Checked Dress(center)
