I was recently contacted by Barbara Hennessy, who's married to Hugh Hennessy, grandson of Papa's oldest sister Margaret Mulcahy Hennessy. (These are the perks of putting your name and e-mail address all over the internet!) She's just started researching the Mulcahy side of the family, and so we've shared some information.
After I pointed her to the blog, she offered a correction to this post, saying, "Also on the blog I noticed the comment about Karbo Bronze Foundry being involved in the NASA program – this is a mixup. Karbo manufactured ship parts first then did a lot of work for Haywood Pool Filters. My husband Hugh Hennessy worked for Grumman Aerospace on the LEM etc. that’s the real tie in!"
