2. Letter: Letter from Boston Police re locating mother Mary Fallon Cody, 27 Jan 1938, Boston, Suffolk, MA. 4 January 27, 1938

Captain John McGrath
Division 14
Police Department
Boston, Mass.

Dear Captain McGrath:

Your communication of January 21, 1938, referring to one Mrs. Arthur Beecher, 97-27 106th St., Ozone Park, Long Island, New York, asks information about her mother.

The four Cody children mentioned by you were brought here July 10, 1908. Father, Thomas J. Cody, had been dead two years. Mother, Mary Fallon, then forty-two years of age, was in the House of Correction, serving a six months term. The children were brought here after having been adjudicated neglected and all remained in our care until they became "self-supporting."

We have had no contact with the mother since November 29, 1908. At that time she was in Nantucket, Mass. The letter written here is on stationery of the Folger Inn, where she was presumably living.

I realize this information does not give you much to work on in locating the mother at this time, but the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children on Mt. Vernon St., may have had some contact with her after the year, 1908.

3. Census in 1940 in Queens, Queens, NY. 5 The 1940 census recorded Arthur Beechert, 37, born in Pennsylvania, living with wife Mary, 37, born in Massachusetts; and their children born in New York: Arthur L., 14; Mary Joyce, 11; and John Jacob, 5. In 1935 they were living in Boonton, New Jersey.

Arthur was born in Pennsylvania, his wife in Massachusetts and the children in New York.
