Mary was an unmarried Laundress when she died of tuberculosis in 1927. Her address as entered in the death record is given as Dalbeth Convent, Shettleston, Glasgow.
Daughter Catherine married Vincenzo Mora (1891-1945) who originated from a place in Italy called Sora. He was bound for New York from Italy but an onboard experience led to circumstances which led to him returning to Europe (ultimately Glasgow) from Canada rather than making a new life across the Atlantic. Catherine moved to Manchester following Vincenzo’s death in Glasgow.
