Surname Saturday: Passage & Phelan

Mary Ellyn Brady Cooper (1927-1015) was an enthusiastic and prolific family researcher before computers.  I have acquired some of her papers and will be publishing them for the benefit of her extended family.

These 3 photos were is a envelope labeled "Passage" :
This first photo was identified as Charles Philip Phelan (1897-1973) with grandson Charles Glenn 'Mickey' Passage (1939-1984)
This 2nd photo was identified as Jack Passage (1947-2000)


The 3rd photo is not identified.  I would take a wild guess that it is Charles Phelan's daughter, Rose Marie Phelan who married Albert Passage and is the mother of Jack and Mickey Passage.
