The Children of John & Mary McKenny

The five children of John and Mary (Manley) McKenny are really a mystery. They grew up in Thorold, Ontario at 23 Carleton St. S. and after their parents died they all stayed in the house on Carleton St. None of them married and none of them moved out on their own. All five of the children are buried with their parents in Lakeview Cemetery in Thorold.
