52 Ancestors No. 47: My Grand Aunt Mary Aileen (Moynahan) Boyle

Having finished the post on my grand aunt Mabel (Moynahan) Morkin (1902-1945) I thought I should add a post about her older sister Mary Aileen (Moynahan) Boyle (born 1899) and her family, the Boyles.

Mary Aileen is my grand aunt. Only recently have I been paying attention to the distinction made between "grand aunts" and "great aunts" (thanks to Amy Crow)
"Technically, the sister of one of your grandparents is your grand-aunt. “Grand” shows that it is one generation away; “great” is supposed to be added to generations beyond “grand.” - See more at:
Grand aunt Mary Aileen Moynahan was the first born child of John and Mary (Broderick) Moynahan.
