Notes for Harriet Casey
Harriet Casey was a long-time family friend. She and her first husband Vincent Casey were in the same parish (St James in Falls Chuch). The families regularly got together for picnics, the adults played bridge or pinocle monthly. Vincent had been gone for a long time, perhaps two decades, before Clare Scogin Farrell died. Andrew and Harriet started dating within months of Clare’s death, and married about six months after Clare died.

It was clear to the family that Andrew was not capable of living without a wife. He had no idea how to cook, or do any of the traditional housewife functions.
Notes for Andrew Harry (Spouse 1)
Was christened Harry Andrew, but reversed name as a young man. Family lore says that his mother, Nellie was engaged to Andrew Farrell (1871-1892). When Andrew was killed in a railroad accedent, Daniel J Farrell courted Nellie. Nellie’s sisters, the Burke girls, bribed Harry’s older brothers to call him Andrew12
Notes for Andrew Harry (Spouse 1)
Loved to play bridge. Played tournaments for duplicate bridge at the Knights of Columbus.
Notes for Andrew Harry (Spouse 1)
Claimed that he worked for his Dad’s construction firm in 1913 building St Bridget’s School, which he attended starting in 1915. The school constuction site was across the street from his family home. His dad’s firm was building the school. Andrew says that when he was 3, he pulled a wagon to the construction site. The wagon carried blocks of ice for the men working on the school. Thus he was helping, and one could stretch it that he was part of the crew.
