In reply to: List inside... 's message, "Another addition to the "Kennedy Curse"" on Friday, August 02, 11:25:22am

Rose Kennedy's mother Mary Josephine Hannon was one of 9 children - only 4 survived.

1 brother died of fever at age 6
1 brother died young of a lung infection in 1861
2 brothers died early of alcoholism
1 brother who survived had his leg crushed by a train at age 13
the youngest daughter drowned with her best friend while Josephine was supposed to be watching them.
2 other sisters survived along with Josephine

On September 18, 1889, Hannon married John Fitzgerald.

Maybe it was really the Hannon family that was cursed? Also, Rose's sister Mary Agnes Gargan died at age 44 leaving leaving 3 Gargan children.
