The Death Of A Five Year Old
Thomas Doyle used to tell how his little sister, Margaret (born 1917 died 1922 at age 5 years), had died after being struck in the head by a wooden seat on a hanging swing seat. After researching Margaret's information I found she died of what was called acute endocarditis complicated by hypertrophied tonsils and acute gastritis. The poor little girl was very, very ill and no swing was the cause of her death. Perhaps Tom's parents, John and Agnes, having just lost a child so young, didn't want to deal with talking out the cause of her death with her older brother. You can see on the death certificate above she was under medical care for 2 years, and with the complications it killed her within three days.

Edward J. Doyle Family
Edward immigrated from Ireland with his parents in 1868, settling in Albany New York until 1870 where his younger sister was born while the family resided in what was known as the five points district of downtown New York. After the birth of his sister his parents decided to move their growing family out of New York to somewhere safer. They chose Chicago, Illinois, specifically what was then known as Goose Island, across the river from downtown Chicago. Edward's father Thomas, purchased property of 79 North Cherry Street on the northern end of what was known as Goose Island. Just one block south of Edward's property now stands what was known as Wrigley Field Stadium. One month after moving to 79 North Cherry Street, Edward and his family must have stood outside on the fateful October night and watched in horror as Chicago burned.

Not usually considered a certificate of birth, a recorded document showing Dad's real first name on the document above. The second document below, was an addendum stating that his name was supposed to show Henry Anton Doyle and not Anton which was first  recorded. No where is there a Thomas Bernard shown to have ever been born to John Joseph Doyle and Agnes Chester, but under the same date, and parents,  there was a Henry Anton. There no real documents showing how and why Thomas had any legal right to use the name Thomas Bernard even though in 1932 he did use the name when he married Mildred Fredricks. On census, although the name Thomas was found. How or why the name change noone knows, not even Aunt Aggie who was surprised about the name when Iasked her.
