Finds His Stepsisters (1906)


Charles Keating, Heir to Irish Estate, Locates Women in Denver.

Special to the Washington Post

Springfield, Ohio, Aug. 17–Charles Keating, of Washington, D. C., has, after a search of thirteen years located his two stepsisters Catherine and Mary Clancy, in a boarding house at 621 Nineteenth street, in Denver, Colo. Incidentally, he has learned that he is one of four heirs to an estate valued at $100,000 in Ireland left by his parents. The other direct heirs are the two stepsisters referred to and William Keating, of Bellevue, Ky.

Frank Keating, clerk at the Arcade Hotel, in this city, is a son of the latter.

Almost continuously since the death of Loftus Keating, the father, the two sons have been at work trying to locate the sisters, their evidence being necessary to get the fortune left. The evidence has been secured, and it is said the distribution of the estate is to be made at once.
