Mary Alice Condon was born in Holland on January 29,1876.
Married: April 22, 1896 to Dominic Rogan in Chicago, Illinois.
Children: The birth of 2 children were listed. The first was only listed as "Rogan Child" born Aug. 18, 1910. The
Second child, Eileen Rita Cecilla Rogan, born March 29, 1913. Both children were born in Chicago, Illinois.
Brother: William H. Condon was living at 4236 North Mozart Street in Chicago, Illinois on March 25, 1955
Mary Alice Condon is my great-grandmother. Dominic Rogan immigrated from England October 19, 1892. I believe he
was a boarder at the Condon home. It is my understanding that they eloped in Chicago and that her father, William
Condon did not speak to her again for years. My great aunt Elsie (oldest of the Rogan children), told me that
when she was young, her mother (Mary Alice) referred to her father as "mud", and for several years thought that
her grandfather's name was "Mr. Mud".
Dominic and Mary Alice Rogan had 9 children, all born in Chicago.

Loretta = Female = 8/18/1910
Vincent = Male = 1915
Mary Alice died in June of 1905, at about 8 months apparently of some form of cancer.
Eiliene died in January of 1917 short of her 4th birthday.
George died in October of 1918 of a ruptured appendix. The doctor apologized at the funeral, because it was during
the flu epidemic and he mis-diagnosted his illness.
Vincent died in 1934.
Dominic died in 1931 and Mary Alice died in 1960.
My mother lived with her grandmother for many years. Although loving, she had because rather bitter as she never
really got past the death of 4 of her children.
