Timothy Brennan was born in Ireland on May 20th 1897 according to his wife Marion's U.S. passport application. He arrived in the U.S. in 1907 and lived in Providence, Rhode Island. He became a citizen in 1915 but according to the index he was born May 4th 1890. The index also gave me his place of birth as 'Kerry County, Ireland.' Timothy and Marion married on Nov. 9th 1916. According to the 1920 Census for Providence, Rhode Island, Timothy was a Police Officer. I was unable to find the name of Timothy's parents at this time.
Marion Brennan, pictured above, applied for a U.S. passport in order to visit her mother in 1923. Marion was born in Drumlish, Co. Longford in 1895. The Index of Rhode Island Marriages gives her maiden name as O'Hara.
