Fearless Females – Marriage

From the Accidental Genealogist for National Women’s History Month. Prompt: Do you have marriage records for your grandparents or great grandparents? Write a post about where they were married and when.  Any family stories about the wedding day?

Mary Josephine [3 August 1867 Ireland – 17 December 1927 NY]
Michael Coyle [b 24 November 1870 Ireland]

Married 9 November 1895, Saint Brigid’s Church, New York City
One day Michael Coyle entered a boarding house. As he entered Mary Jo Mullane was walking down the stairs to the lobby. He looked up, saw her and thought she was beautiful. It was love at first sight. He was a baker and she kept house. They had seven children.


  1. What a lovely couple? It was love at first sight for them.

  2. Look at the sleeves on that dress! The volume of that dressed is rivaled only by the width of Michael Coyle's moustache!
