John Donovan, Pittsburgh PA, father of Mary L. Sullivan

Looking for more information on the parents of Mary Loretta Donovan b. 22 OCT 1889 d. 11 SEP 1965, married Edward Francis Sullivan in 1908 in Pittsburgh, P.A., later moved to Ford City, P.A.

I found a newspaper listing saying that her father, John Donovan of Pittsburgh, had come to visit in 1929. My grandmother says that Mary was John's daughter by a first wife and that his second wife treated her poorly. A real Cinderella type story.

Any information would be appreciated. Mary was also called "Mae".

I have information to share on the SULLIVAN, BRAUERS, STOLLENWERK, YOTHERS, BEESON, RAYLE lines.
