John Joseph Clancy (c 1904 [Providence, RI or MA - )
|1900 census||Not likely correct.|
|1905 census||Might be John Clancy Sr.|
|1910 census||Maybe. Birth year does not corroborate.|
|1917 military||Born 1881 March 24. Might be his father.|
|1920 census||1920 January 10. Pittsfield city, Berkshire county, MA. Frank G Botter (head) - age 39, born c 1881 in NY; both parents born in NY; machinist (industry illegible). Margeret Botter (wife) - age 39, born c 1881 in CT; father born in MA; mother born in CT. John J Clancy (boarder) - age 16, born c 1904 in Rhode Island; father born in NY; mother born in CT.|
|1925 census||Joseph J Clancy, unlikely to be our person of interest.|
|1930 census||I believe this is him.|
|1942 death||Not likely match. Julia Daly. Spouse is John (Daly?).|
There are records of two John Clancy Sr's in Rhode Island, each begetting a John Clancy Jr.
There was a John Clancy married to Elizabeth "Lizzie" Killian. Both were Irish-born. However, this seems unlikely to be our people of interest due to conflicts with the marriage record (where the mother is listed as Julia Daly) and because there are sometimes two John Joseph Clancy's from Rhode Island in the census records, one of whom can be attributed to Irish parentage and the other (who likely is the man who married Estelle) to United States parentage.
|1906 birth||Not sure if this is him; the mother's name does not corroborate.|
|1910 census||Not sure if this is him because both parents are born in Ireland. Maybe there were two John Joseph Clancy Sr's in Rhode Island -- one married to Elizabeth Killian, the other to Julia Daly.|
|1930 census||I believe this is not the same John Joseph Clancy.|
|1940 census||I suspect this is not our person of interest.|

Married to Olive Kimball. She had children from her previous marriage to Mr. Burbank.

|1998 residence||Not likely him because he Would have been mighty old.|
Estelle left behind several collections of photographs.
Almost none of the photos have any writing, but their groupings, orderings and content give narrative glimpses of our family's life. Flora Sawyer has been collaboratively identifying photographs, a crucial step in cataloging and scanning the collections.
