There is a newspaper article about Celestine Kennedy in the Newspaper Watertown NY Daily Times 1924 (Nov):

Missing Rings Are Returned... You can find this story here:

Just search "Celestine Kennedy" (in quotes) and you will find it. It's a cute story, and noteworthy in that one of the missing rings was "an engagement token".

Hope this helps. Annie
