Manny’s birthday book – 23 October

October 23, 2011

Kate Greenaway's Birthday Book for ChildrenMy grandmother, who I called Manny, had a birthday book.  I’m posting the entries throughout the year, as they appear.

From Manny’s Birthday Book:  October 23rd – Charlie Kelly and Frank McLeod Kirwan

Sammy has a little line,

His mother has a dish,

On which small Sammy trusts that he

May shortly place a fish.

Charlie Kelly appears to have written his own name in Manny’s book.

Charles J Kelly was born in the East Coolgardie Registration District in 1911 (1911/516WA).  A number of possible Charles Kelly’s married and died in Western Australia.

If you think you know who Charlie Kelly was, please comment and let me know.

Frank McLeod Kirwan was my father, Manny’s eldest child.  He was born 23 October 1937 and died 28 October 1976.
