Delia Pardo was a sister of my grandmother, Belle Atkinson Muma. Their third sister, Jennie Atkinson Rea, was the first to move from Michigan to Everett & Arlington, Washington area. They had brothers, but I have no good record of them. Delia's, Belle's, & Jennie's mother was Mary Ann Ford who married John Atkinson. (I'm named after her).
Mary Ann & John Atkinson moved from New York to Cass City, Michigan with her father Thomas Patrick Ford. We have many cousins in Michigan descended from Atkinsons & Mumas.
Mary Ann's mother, Kitty Grahan Ford, had died soon after giving birth to her third child in 1852. Mary Ann and her sister were about 6 and 8 and stayed with a neighbor in Ireland while their father Thomas Patrick Ford went to New York, NY to work two years until he could afford their passage. I know nothing more of their childhood. After Mary Ann married John Atkinson, they all settled in Michigan.
I knew John Pardo ("Uncle" John & Anne) and their daughter Iris. I didn't know Ben Pardo and know little of the rest of the Pardo family. I knew Bob Woods, Mary Pardo Sloman's son, and his two daughters, one of whom is also Mary who has a daughter Mary. I've lost touch in the past few years with all of them though.
