I am told (Family gossip) about a relative named Bodelia Mcgeever b. 1914 in Newport, Monmouthshire.
Where was she in 1939 ?
Family tales say that she looked after her elderly Father named Patrick.

Also I have been told that a Gertrude Mcgeever lived with them. She was said to be the Wife of one of Patrick's Sons but I have not come across any info on this.

There is a possibility she married Arthur. b.1900

Thanks from Nala,

Maddie
