Jackie, Aunt Marie's only child, came to live with Grandma and Grandpa in the late 1930s or early 1940s.

Jackie recently celebrated his 50th wedding anniversary with his wife Marie.

When Aunt Marie married Uncle John in 1935 it was news because of her Uncle Lew. Bambi found a newspaper story in the Long Island Press titled "Mary A. McNally, Valentine's Niece Will Wed Jan 12." Bridesmaids were sister Cecelia and Veronica and John's sister Catherine. Billie was maid of honor and John's best man was Harry Lyck. Ushers were Albert Hermann, Buddy Duane, Ben Brackman and Donald Haggerty. The wedding was at Our Lady of Lourdes in Queens Village followed by a reception and breakfast at the Commercial House.

As the eldest Marie was the first to marry. Billie followed in August of 1935.
