My, how wonderful that you'll be seeing your cousin again after all these
years - what a fascinating trip you have ahead of you. Thank you for your
invitation to join you for dinner while you're in NY - as it turns out I am
planning to visit my sister, Bianca (daughter of my mother, Bobo Sigrist and
her first husband) in California that week and so won't be able to make it.
As for my father, I just received an email from him, a portion of which I'll
paste in below. He would like you to resend your emails as he didn't
receive your earlier contact. His email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your Doran E-mail. certainly interested me. Timothy Doran
(born in Wexford was a very remarkable and productive man) after leaving
Australia, married and helped his wife produce 12 children; 6 boys 6 girls.
His eldest son George Doran was tall elegant man... a well know actor who
emigrated to United States -eventually being gunned down and killed in New
York! (have no reason why). He had changed his name to stage name George
Sydenham-(not an unusual trait in our family) many like Punty -Bronte
another my father Thomas John McClory to Desmond O'Donovan, My brother
Desmond McClory to Desmond O'Donovan for many years, now back to Desmond
McClory. I an currently booked into the hotel in Dublin as Kevin
MamaJo as I was taught to call her was small, elegant but very imposing in a
theatrical way; she did not want the stage mentioned after marrying The
Owner of the Theatre she was playing in London. (She had divorced my
Grandfather George after he lost his leg in the door of a tram in San
Fransisco (wouldnt you know!) and found work difficult being confined to
parts like 'Moby Dick' or Long John Silver with his 'peg leg'. When my
mother showed signs of wishing to go on the stage, she was packed off ti
Ypres in Belgium where she was incarcerated in a convent, which later being bombed out moved lock stock barrels and nuns to Connemara where you were later to be incarcerated. Now,
maybe I am wrong but I have always believed that Mamajo's real name was Jeannette - posssibly Josephine Shellf . (German or Austria). I believe I gave you a copy of my mother's unpublished
auto-biography you should find the information your correspondent is looking for in there...incidently my mother defied Mamajo, went on the London Stage
and subsequently met my father in a play "Paddy is the next best
thing...... then in quick succession produced Voila, Desmond and Kevin."
Hope this helps.
Best wishes to you,
