The following information is provided by Karen Hrabec, great grand-daughter of Sgt James Partlin who died in Edie’s care on 21 August 1918 at No 3 General Hospital in Le Tréport. More information on Sgt James Partlin here.
“After James Partlin died in 1918 my great grandmother, May, married Patrick Gerald Mulrooney in 1919 and he took over the five children as their stepfather. One of these children was my grandma Mary.
“Well, Patrick Gerald Mulrooney had a son from a previous marriage and that son was called Patrick James Mulrooney. Patrick (Junior) had a relationship with my grandma and produced my mother.
So the above are my great grandfather and grandfather.”
PS 25 Jan 2009. Karen ads “I have been doing some more research and found that Patrick Gerald Mulrooney died age 65 in 1942. And his son Patrick James Mulrooney died on the 23 June 1943 age 45. Grandad (PJM) is at the Blackpool Cemetery War Grave and was in the Royal Artillery.”
