|Agnes' parents Patrick and Clara (Moynahan) Broderick|
Agnes is a unique "double cousin" as we were related through both the Brodericks and the Moynahans.
I decided to make this blog post about her because, like her grandfather Martin Broderick (1839-1915), I recently located new documents about Agnes in the Detroit Free Press archives.
Agnes' mother Clara (Moynahan) died in 1919 at the young age of 37 years (after a lingering illness) leaving her husband Patrick with five children aged 18 months to 15 years. Agnes was the eldest.

I could not find a headstone online for the Caseys because the Holy Sepulchre Catholic Cemetery is only half photographed to date (at 53% of the 16,479 interments).
