A message board query that allowed me to have the "mystery photos"

I found the original query sent to Mike B Egan on the Carroll-McEntee connection.It was in the McEntee surname message board at
Several years back, I was quite a frequent reader of various surname message boards.
They are valuable for contacting other genealogists and exchanging information.I have included the main Carroll message boards on my sidebar ( under "links").

It was through this query, that I was able to get in contact with Mr. Egan, who would be my cousin through the McEntee line ( the spouse of John Joseph Carroll, my great-grandfather, was Jennie McEntee) .
All of the following is just FYI, to correctly document my sources. The photos that you can see in the next post we went by Mr. Egan.

I am looking for a relation between the Carrolls and McEntees, probably in Philadelphia. I recently found a picture of John and Mary Carroll from 1919, they were the "Carroll Cousins' of my McEntees. I did find a John Carroll married to Jennie McEntee married in 1866, Philadelphia, but can't make the connection yet. John was in Railroading at the time of marriage.Is there any Philadelphia McEntee with a Jennie or Jane.Thanks

Have a nice day.
