Sometimes fate plays out her hand in your favor...Michael's half-sister Mary Ann Finn had just
arrived at Michael's residence in N.Y.C. in time to be captured by the 1900 U.S. census.  Shortly
after this census was taken, Mary Ann got very sick and returned to Ireland and died 1 Aug 1900.
This family story was related to me by Doly Finn (my 1st cousin) and obviously confirmed when I
obtained the 1900 U.S. census.
