      Notes 
      • Was Married 3 times. On the back of the naturalization certificate in pencil is written wife Nora. The certificate is dated 1922 which is after the death of Katherine Buckley. Bridget Monaghan was the third wife. My father allways referred to her as Aunt Bea. She survived John. After Kate died, John left his family and married a widow with 10 children in Boston. When she died he returned to New York. Jack and Vincent went to live with their sister May. Jack subsequently left to get his own room because he felt it was too hard on May who by that time was engaged to be married to Maurice Griffin. Frank went to live with an uncle and subsequently went out on his own. Their Mother's death and their father's leaving created friction between several of the children and their father. John worked for Swift Meat Packing Co in the slaughter houses of New York and when he lost his job there, he opened his own business as a supplier of meat to local butcher shops. After he died his son Vincent took over the business and ran it for many years. see P30 Daniel Vincent Grace He was the night manager at the packing company. The reason he lost his job was because he was nearing retirement age and this was a way for the company to save money on a pension. John lived in Flushing NY and in the basement of his house he raised birds and bred miniature Boston Terriers.
